A few days ago, HTC started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat OTA update to the flagship HTC 10 in Europe. However, this process did not last as the company later on followed in with an announcement that it had halted the update.
According to the Taiwanese company, the upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat for HTC 10 users was halted because of some bugs found in the OTA files. Back then, it was revealed that the company will be working on the fixes and later resume the update “within three weeks.”
Now, in a fresh announcement from the company’s Product and Service Director for the EMEA region, Graham Wheeler, those using the HTC 10 can be sure of receiving the update notification to Android 7.0 Nougat anytime from today. This is great from HTC, especially since the first 10 to receive the update did so back in 2016.
HTC 10 Nougat starts rolling out today. UK first more regions to follow soon.

In addition to the HTC 10, those in the same region are also reporting to be receiving Android 7.0 Nougat on their HTC One M9. The phone is a flagship from 2015 and it actually started receiving the update a few weeks ago, but it is just now that those in the UK and the rest of the EMEA region can enjoy the same treat.

Last year, HTC had promised to prioritize the Nougat update for three devices – the HTC 10, One M9 and One A9. Now that it has already availed the OS for those using the two high-end variants, the next in line is the midrange One A9. But as for now, there is no confirmed date from HTC regarding when this phone will start receiving the OS. Well, don’t mind because we’ll keep track of the matter and update you when it happens. Keep it TWG!
