The One A9 was HTC’s first device that came loaded with the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It’s not a flagship, but a good-looking mid-range handset which has a similar design to the One M9. Now, Sprint is rolling out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update OTA and the users will be pleased to hear they will receive 184 new emojis and that the camera and battery have been improved, the system benefits from some enhancements etc. Another flagship that will be upgraded is the LG G4, which is receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow in Canada.
After Google has released the Android 6.0.1 for its Nexus devices, eight weeks later, HTC has achieved the performance to release this update to one of its new smartphones. Instead of rolling out this update to its One M9 and M8 flagships, HTC preferred to deliver the Android 6.0 Marshmallow firmware to these two devices and to release the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for its One A9 mid-range device that was launched in November. The owners of this handset will notice that the battery life has been extended, that the camera has received new features and that a new functionality has been added -Wi-Fi Calling. Also, the 184 emojis will be loved by those who like to use them in messages, emails, tweets etc. Currently, Sprint’s models can be upgraded to Android 6.0.1 and the users who haven’t received this update yet can manually check and download it by going to the software update section of the Settings app.
