HTC’s unlocked One A9 will start receiving Android 7.0 Nougat tonight


If you decided to make the HTC One A9 your daily driver, HTC has some good news to kickstart your week. The unlocked HTC One A9 will begin receiving its Android 7.0 Nougat update tonight. The news was just announced by HTC’s Mo Versi on Twitter, who confirmed that the update has received technical approval and will soon begin hitting devices.

As for what’s included with the update, Versi didn’t spill any of those details. We do know that Nougat includes several new features, though, like quick replies and bundled notifications, so HTC One A9 owners should have some new goodies to check out once Nougat makes it to their neck of the woods.

    I remember back when I bought this device based on the “HTC promised that the One A9 would receive Android OS updates within 15 [business] days of the first Nexus device to get that update”. Wow, was I stupid.

      No, it was a good bet. We all knew what OEM ‘promises’ are going into this.

      It has been much more regular than Samsung with the least amount of drama.

      But, HTC is still a smaller outfit, and unless somebody starts a subscription service for updates, it’s diminishing business value for OEMs.

    Bought this phone about 3 months ago when it was on a big sale for $275. Love it. Will probably eventually load Nougat but Marshmallow works flawlessly for me.

    I used this phone last year, trying to sell it right now but no hits from CL. It was a good phone, camera was lacking. It was a holdover phone from my Nexus 5 dying till I got the Pixel

    Just upgrade my one A9 to Android 7 but I lost the wifi calling. Anyone has the same problem?

    Where’s the Nougat update for the Galaxy S7? It will probably come out after the S8 is released.

    I just upgraded via OTA update, and I have Wi-Fi calling as well as VoLTE. Take your sim card out, start up phone, shut down, return sim card, and try it again. Wi-Fi calling under “call menu” now, on the bottom of the page.
