HTC has been quite busy lately pushing Android 7.0 Nougat to the top-end HTC 10 as well as 2015's One M9 and the midrange One A9. Perhaps, the company unveiled the HTC U Ultra and HTC U Play in January. HTC has been quiet about the possibility of continuing the lineage of its flagship range.
The UK Was Among The First To Receive The Update
HTC's EMEA Product and Service Director, Graham Wheeler, officially confirmed the availability of the Nougat update for the One M9 in the UK yesterday. The UK was among the first markets to get the Nougat update for the HTC 10 too. Also, the tech giant's HTC 10 started receiving the latest update to Android 7.0 Nougat on Sprint. The unlocked variant saw this treat towards the end of 2016 alongside the HTC One M9. The update will bring the One M9 up to Android 7.0, however, that's not quite the newest version of the OS. Android 7.0 was released six months ago and since then, Google has released Android 7.1 and 7.1.1 and is currently beta-testing version 7.1.2.
