HTC started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to the flagship HTC 10 and the 2015 HTC One M9 back in 2016, but this was only meant for those in the U.S.
Now, in a new series of updates, the Taiwanese tech giant has been pushing the same update to the HTC 10 and One M9 in other markets other than the U.S. It has already happened in Canada, the UK, and mainland Europe, but the latter region had some issues that have now been taken care of. As for those in Australia, your time has finally come as Android 7.0 Nougat is currently rolling out to the HTC 10.
The update brings version 2.41.709.3 of the software and weighs a substantial 1.38GB. Other than coming in with the latest Android 7.0 Nougat for the HTC 10, the update also brings the latest Android security patch from Google, support for VoLTE/VoWi-Fi service, bug fixes as well as system enhancements.
While HTC 10 users in Canada started receiving Android 7.0 Nougat update about a month ago, the same update is only making it to the HTC One M9 at this moment in time. Apparently, Canadian carrier Rogers has updated its Android Nougat release date status schedule for the One M9 to “Available now”. This is great news for those using this 2015 flagship despite the fact that those in the U.S. started seeing the same update back in 2016.
Another device that Rogers has also released Android 7.0 Nougat for is the Sony Xperia X Performance. Like the HTC One M9, the release status of this device has been updated to “Available now.” The carrier confirms that the update will also add VoLTE support to the Xperia X Performance once it is installed. Hopefully, this update will also bring the latest Android security patch from Google, which is dated February 5, 2017.
Since the HTC 10, HTC One M9 and Sony Xperia X Performance handsets will be receiving this Android 7.0 Nougat as an OTA, not all units will receive the notification at once. Instead, it could take a few days before all units are updated. To manually check if the update is ready to download on your phone, head to Settings>About phone>System updates.
Rogers has also confirmed that Android 7.0 Nougat update for Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge and Moto Z Play is coming soon.
