Android 7.0 Nougat update is finally set to arrive on the unlocked versions of HTC One A9. The HTC One A9 Nougat update will roll out over-the-air to devices tonight in the United States. The announcement was made by HTC’s Mo Versi, in a Twitter post. There he said:
“We have received technical approval on the Nougat OS update, and OTA will begin tonight!”
It is still not clear if the update will roll out over time to all the users or it is being deployed at once. There was also no word on HTC’s plans for other regions or for other devices that were sold by carriers such as T-Mobile and Sprint.
As is the case with most of the OEMs these days, HTC’s Android interpretation is much similar to the Android stock experience. People could also expect less bloatware as the Android 7.0 Nougat update will not ship apps that carriers usually bundle with devices they sell. Some reports also said that the update will lead to improved battery performance.
After receiving HTC One A9 Nougat update, users will enjoy some amazing features like the Multi-Window mode, improved notifications panel, as well as enhanced performance and security.
HTC One A9 Unlocked owners have one thing to concern about. The Nougat update for HTC 10, which has been rolled out in 2016, was recently halted due to unidentified bugs. Even Google devices have encountered problems and issues after the Nougat update. For instance, Nexus users have faced battery drainage and speaker problems.
As always, users will receive a notification once the Android 7.0 Nougat update for HTC One A9 is available. If you’ve not yet received the update, simply head to the Settings menu and check for the update manually. Before updating your device, make sure that your device is sufficiently charged and connected to a stable Wi-Fi network to avoid any interruption.
Since the update is currently rolling out to devices in the US only, the international variants of HTC One A9 will receive the update in the coming days.
