HTC One M9 users already started receiving the update to Android 7.0 Nougat back in 2016, but this only applies to the unlocked variant.
As at the time of this writing, quite a good number of users who are on carrier-based HTC One M9 variants have yet to see the OS. In addition, the global launch of the OS is still going on, with some European and Asian markets currently receiving the OTA. Now, according to a new report, those using the One M9 on Australia’s Optus carrier will soon join the Nougat party as the carrier has reportedly completed testing.
At the moment, the carrier has not given out any details about the possible release date of the OS, however, the fact that testing is done should suggest this date is just around the corner. Apparently, the OS will first roll out to a few users of the HTC One M9 and if no issues are reported, the wider rollout will follow suit. This could take a few weeks or even a month before all devices receive the update, so don’t panic if you don’t see an OTA notification in the coming weeks.
We’ll follow up the matter and update you when the Nougat update is ready for download. Meanwhile, you can also do regular checks to see if the update is ready for downloading on your One M9. This can be done via the Settings>About device>System updates.
