The Taiwanese manufacturer has just announced on its Twitter account that the HTC 10 owners from the US that this handset will be officially updated to Android 7 Nougat. HTC has promised to deliver this update to its flagship by the end of 2016, and it kept its word.
Recently, famous leakster @LlabTooFeR has shared screenshots of a HTC 10 running on Android 7.0 Nougat, suggesting that the new operating system will arrive soon for the unit. He also revealed that the build for the European variant is stable and that HTC will start pushing out the update to HTC 10 users. The Taiwanese company has preferred to make only small changes, in order to retain an almost raw Android experience, but there are definitely new features and subtle visual changes For example, according to a report, the lock screen, the shortcuts, clock and weather widget have been slightly altered.
While the HTC 10 will be updated today, November 25, the carrier versions will receive the Android Nougat “early next year”. Unfortunately, HTC hasn’t specified an exact date when other unlocked handsets, such as the One M9 and One A9 will be also updated, so it could take weeks before that will happen. However, according to rumors, the European version of the HTC 10 is expected to receive the update by the end of this month.
On this other hand, if you want to spend around $560 on the latest smartphone that HTC has released with Nougat out of the box, maybe the HTC Evo, also known as Bolt, will keep you company for a while.
