Hot on the heels of Android N’s first beta landing for the public, HTC has already announced which of its phones will be receiving the next version of Google’s mobile OS. Whether it’s called Nutella, Nougat, Nachos or whatever you decide to name it, HTC will be pushing it out to HTC 10, One A9 and One M9 users.
Sadly, that’s about all the detail we have so far. The manufacturer can’t say when the update will arrive since it depends on when Google delivers the software to partners for testing.

Although the company hasn’t officially said the M8 is now end-of-line, it very much seems like 2014’s flagship won’t get Android N. In response to a direct question on the M8’s future the company’s senior communications manager, Jeff Gordon stated, “Not sure yet. Not saying yes or no yet, however please note M8 over 2 years old now.” In short, the M8 isn’t a priority since it’s an older handset and most of its users will likely have moved on to newer phones by now.
