Great news for the owners of the HTC One M9 flagship, which was released in March 2015! The unlocked version of this device will be updated to Android Nougat tonight, as HTC USA has announced on its Twitter account. Shortly after that, the carriers will start rolling out the update to their subscribers.

So, while carrier versions of the HTC One M9 and HTC 10 will wait until early 2017 to receive Nougat updates, the unlocked One M9 will start receiving the update tonight and the following device enjoying the same treatment will be the unlocked One A9. If users will want to manually check for OTA update, then they will head to their devices’ Settings > About Phone > System Updates.

The HTC 10 received the Nougat update on Black Friday and it seems that HTC has moved quickly, delivering the new firmware to the unlocked HTC One M9 a few days later. It is known that each new Android version comes with new features and Nougat has introduced multi-window support, allowing users to run two apps simultaneously on the same screen; Doze on the Go will kick into action even when the device will be in the pocket; improved notifications and in-line replies.

Also, users will be able to scale their display up or down, by customizing the Dots Per Inch.

As for the specs of the HTC One M9, we remind you that the smartphone has a 5-inch Super LCD3 Full HD screen, it’s powered by a Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 Octa-core processor backed by 3GB of RAM and has an internal memory of 32GB, which can be expanded with a microSD card.

The rear camera has a resolution of 20MP and supports features such as autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash, as well as other basic options, while the primary camera is 4MP Ultrapixel (it’s the same camera that was used on the back of the HTC One M8). The phone has a non-removable battery with a capacity of 2840 mAh.
