Although OnePlus should be releasing the Android 7.0 Nougat update officially for the OnePlus X, but the company has failed to do so. Even the 2016 flagship killer from the company is awaiting a stable Nougat release.
But anyway, if you’re looking forward for some Nougat love on your budget flagship killer, the folks over at CyanogenMod just released the official CM14.1 nightly builds for the OnePlus X.
These nightly builds might have a few bugs/issues but nothing serious enough to stop you from using the ROM as your daily driver.
The OnePlus X is OnePlus’ attempt to attract the budget market section in India and other countries. As for Nougat for the OnePlus X, unfortunately it has been confirmed that the device will not get the update to Nougat and will remain on Marshmallow. So this should provide a good opportunity to get the smartphone on to Nougat with CM 14.1.
