HTC was one of the first Android OEMs to promise early Android 7.0 Nougat updates to its three of its latest devices – HTC 10, One M9 and One A9.
Being the flagship variant, the HTC 10 was the first to be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat back in 2016. A few weeks later, the same OS started showing up to the 2015 flagship, HTC One M9, however, this was only happening in the U.S. In addition, the Nougat treat was only hitting the unlocked model of the One M9.
HTC started rolling out the new Android 7.0 Nougat to Europe’s HTC 10 this year and a few days later, the update was halted after bugs were reportedly discovered. Later on, it emerged that the OS had resumed rolling out, but it was only going out to units in the UK. Most, if not all of these reports were coming from HTC’s Graham Wheeler and in another of his usual Twitter updates, the company’s Regional Operation Head for the EMEA region has confirmed that HTC One M9 is receiving the new Android 7.0 Nougat.
More countries to follow over the coming days.

As at the time of this writing, those in the EMEA region, specifically Mainland Europe, Turkey as well as South Africa can be sure of getting the Nougat OTA notification anytime soon. Apparently, these are the only confirmed markets that are ready for the update, but Wheeler adds that those in other countries within the EMEA region will be included in the coming days.
If you are using the HTC One M9, make sure you have at least 1.27GB of free space in order to accommodate the new update. The update, according to Wheeler’s Twitter account, will up the device’s software version to 4.14.401.7.
Now that HTC One M9 has joined the Nougat party, the only remaining device (confirmed) that has yet to taste this new dessert is HTC One A9. Hopefully, the A9 will also be updated sooner than later.
