Through three Developer Preview releases, Android Nougat has become pretty stable and even usable on your daily driver phones too. Though the exact Android version number of Android Nougat is still unknown. But some hint’s in latest developer preview indicates towards the version number “7.0”. Android Nougat is stated to bring better overall stability, better notifications, an improved “Doze” mode with better memory management in general. But it also stated to bring an integrated “VR” mode, Vulcan graphics support for newer and supported devices when it launches with two new Nexus phones this fall.
