Some good news for HTC 10 users, as the Taiwanese manufacturer has officially confirmed that the smartphone is all set to receive the Android Nougat 7.0 update. Notably, only the unlocked version of the device is scheduled to get the latest Nougat update. As carrier locked HTC 10 devices are scheduled to receive the update early next year.
The company announced that the HTC 10 Android Nougat update rollout should begin on Friday, November 25, via their @HTCUSA Twitter account. Users can expect the update to come without much bloatware. Besides, Android Nougat comes with a great set of features and HTC 10 users can look forward to enjoy Nougat’s redesigned notifications panel, the multi-windows function, along with improved quick settings.
Users need to be reminded that their HTC 10 devices will likely get the Nougat 7.0, and not Nougat 7.1, simply because the latter hasn’t been officially released yet. It’s only available on the new Pixel devices and select Nexus phones, that too in beta format. For those outside the US wondering when their HTC 10 devices will get the update, there’s no information when the Nougat will be arriving.
To recall, the HTC 10 smartphone was launched back in March 2016. It’s the company’s flagship for 2016, and was originally launched for $699. However, interested users can currently pick one up for just $499, as HTC has announced a $200 Black Friday discount on the handset. The deal is only valid till November 29 till 8:59 P.T.
