After Google issued the final version of Android 7.0 Nougat, HTC made an announcement that HTC One A9, HTC One M9 and HTC 10 will be receiving the updated software somewhere in the fourth quarter of 2016.
To fulfill their promise, HTC began upgrading to the latest Android software to users that bought HTC One M9 without network carriers. They also stated that the other models would be receiving the update in the weeks to come.
They announced on social media that One M9 will be receiving the update, regardless of the fact that the other variants won’t receive it until the end of 2016. The update will be available from an OTA and is to be manually checked if received in the Settings menu.
As of last week, those who possess HTC 10’s also started to update their phones to the latest Android version. This means that those owning One A9’s would get the update last before the known deadline. However, that was not the case. They are still waiting for an update ever since it was made, that being March.
When One A9 was launched, HTC made the statement that every phone would receive the update in 15 days’ time of the release, thus being released to Google Nexus phones. We are not sure about this statement though and the amount of clauses attached to it, the developers behind this device haven’t kept their promise of the respective update after the release.
In respect to their bold claim, we live with hope that they will keep up their promise and update HTC One M9 before the end of this year. As 2017 is approaching at a fast pace, HTC One M9 should be receiving the update sooner rather than later.
