HTC One M9 Starts Receiving Android 7.0 Nougat Update
Highlights
  • Only the unlocked variants have started receiving the update
  • Carrier HTC One M9 variant to get the update next year
  • Unlocked HTC 10 variants started getting the update last week

Soon after Google released the final build of Android 7.0 Nougat, HTC announced that the HTC 10, HTC One M9, and HTC One A9 will receive the update sometime in the fourth quarter. Keeping its promise, HTC has rolled out the latest version of Android to unlocked HTC One M9 users. The company has also announced that carrier variants will receive the update sometime in the coming weeks.

HTC announced on its social media channels that the HTC One M9 unlocked variants will start receiving the update. The carrier variants won't get it before the end of this year though. The update should arrive via an OTA, and to manually check if you've received it, head to the Settings menu.

Last week, owners of unlocked HTC 10 units also started receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update. This means that the HTC One A9 is the only phone remaining to get the Nougat update before the promised deadline. In any case, the company has not been able to keep its promise that it made back in March.

After the launch of company's One A9 smartphone, HTC made a bold claim that the unlocked version of the smartphone will get "every" Android update "within 15 days" of it being pushed to Google's Nexus devices. While we aren't sure the amount of asterisks that were attached to this statement, the company hasn't kept its word of a 15-day update release promise.

In any case, let's hope that HTC manages to keep its latest promise of the Nougat release for its select smartphone before the end of the fourth quarter. With 2017 on the horizon, the HTC One A9 should be getting the update soon.
