HTC One A9 Starts Receiving Android 7.0 Nougat Update; Rollout for HTC 10 Tipped to Resume in 3 Weeks
Highlights
  • Unlocked HTC One A9 smartphones will receive Nougat update from Monday
  • Company tipped to resume Nougat rollout for HTC 10
  • HTC 10 Nougat rollout was halted due to some bugs

Android Nougat seems to be capturing the OS share in smartphone market at a snail's pace but it might now gain some momentum as unlocked HTC One A9 smartphones have finally started receiving the much-awaited Nougat update. Further, leaks suggest that the Nougat update rollout for HTC 10, which was put on hold due to a bug, is now expected to be resumed in around three weeks.

Mo Versi, vice president of product management at HTC, announced on Twitter that the unlocked HTC One A9 smartphones have started receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update from Monday. "HTC One A9 Unlocked Owners! We have received technical approval on the Nougat OS update, and OTA will begin tonight!" Versi said in his post.

Notably, at HTC One A9's launch, the company made a bold claim by saying that every Android update will be passed on to the smartphone within 15 days of Nexus smartphones receiving it. Even though Nexus phones received the Nougat update in August, HTC was not able to uphold its promise.

Apart from HTC One A9 owners, HTC 10 users who did not receive the Nougat update in the initial rollout are now expected to receive the update as the company has been tipped to resume its update rollout within three weeks, as per a popular HTC tipster LlabTooFeR.

HTC Germany announced last week that due to some bugs, Android 7.0 Nougat rollout was put on hold, as reported by PhoneArena.

To recall, Android 7.0 Nougat brings along multi-window support, performance enhancements, improved battery life, and changes to notifications, among other new features.
