Meizu details which models will get Nougat, update should roll out July 10

Meizu has listed the phones that will get an update to Android 7.0 Nougat – almost a full year after Google rolled out the OS version to its own devices. Better late than never, is perhaps the attitude Meizu is looking for.

Owners of the Pro 6 Plus, Pro 6, Pro 6s, Pro 5, MX6, M5 Note, M3 Note, and M3 Max will be able to register for the open beta program starting tomorrow through July 2. The actual update is expected to roll out on July 10.

Meizu is also celebrating the 5-year anniversary of Flyme OS, the company’s custom Android overlay tomorrow. Nougat seems like a nice (if not very timely) treat for its loyal fans.





Ford Endeavour Manual Transmission Models Discontinued In India

If you were keen on buying a Ford Endeavour with a manual transmission, you might have to look for something else or consider the Ford Endeavour automatic as well. This is because Ford India has silently discontinued to the manual transmission models of the Endeavour in India. If you log on to the Ford India website, it only shows these three variants; 2.2-litre 4×2 Trend AT, 2.2-litre 4×2 Titanium AT and the 3.2-litre 4×4 Titanium AT.

We did try reaching out to the company and are waiting for an update. We believe that the lack of demand for manual transmission models did these variants in. The new-generation Ford Endeavour was launched in January 2016 and has its primary rivals in the Toyota Fortuner and the Isuzu MU-X. The Fortuner continues to sell in manual and automatic transmission variants while the MU-X sells only with an automatic gearbox.
