HTC 10 started receiving Android 7.0 Nougat towards the end of last year, just like the company had promised. However, like any other major software update, there seem to be some problems with the current OTA files.
With the company’s new 2017 strategy of focusing more on improving other aspects of its smartphones and services rather than just keep on flooding the market with more phones, it appears that the Taiwanese tech giant’s efforts have already led to a new discovery. As it is, the company has stopped the rollout of Android 7.0 Nougat to the HTC 10 after finding out that there are some bugs that needed their attention before hitting consumer devices.
The bugs had found their way into the software during the ongoing OTA program, meaning that those who had already received the OS prior to this discovery have a chance of being on either end of the situation. But hopefully, the bugs had not crept into the HTC 10 models of those who have already received the update.
HTC has not said a word regarding the nature of bugs found in the update to Android 7.0 Nougat. The tech giant has not been specific either on the date that this update will resume for owners of the HTC 10, but it seems it may take some time before it happens.

HTC was one of the few companies to end 2016 with a device running on Android 7.0 Nougat in the market already. The HTC Bolt or HTC 10 Evo was launched last year with Nougat out of the box and since then, the update has already been availed to the HTC One M9 as well, but there is no word on when the same treat will come the HTC One A9’s way. Hopefully, the same does not happen for future updates from the company.
We’ll keep following the matter and let you know when HTC plans to resume the OTA update to Android 7.0 Nougat for HTC 10 users.
