Earlier this year, HTC confirmed that its HTC 10, HTC One A9, and HTC One M9 devices would all be updated to Android Nougat. Now that the latest version of Android has officially been released, however, HTC has offered up some more details on its own rollout, including timing, albeit vague, for each device.

HTC announced today that the unlocked HTC 10 will be first on the docket to receive Android 7.0 Nougat. After that rollout begins sometime in Q4, the unlocked HTC One M9 will receive the update, as will the HTC One A9. The carrier versions of these three devices are last on the totem pole as once HTC completes its customization of Nougat, carriers then get a stab at putting their respective touches on the operating system.
While HTC’s “dates” are pretty vague, they give users a general consensus of what to expect with the rollout. It sounds as if some users will be waiting into 2017 for the update to hit their devices, though.
Android 7.0 Nougat began rolling out to Nexus devices and Pixel C users earlier this week. Other manufacturers have hinted at their rollout plans, including Sony. On the other hand, Android 7.1 could potentially be in the pipeline to ship with the new Nexus devices coming this fall. Android 7.1 is expected to be Nougat’s first maintenance release.
