HTC One A9 Android update: latest news

Update: Nougat update for India-based devices is arriving

The HTC One A9 was the first non-Nexus device to launch with Android Marshmallow. HTC has promised that it will receive firmware updates within 15 days of Google devices, the first of which has already been released. The latest news is that HTC is rolling out the Nougat update to devices in India.

HTC One A9 Yes Yes. Rolling out in Europe and India now.

HTC One A9 Android Nougat update

When the Taiwanese company first launched the device in late 2015 they had promised that the unlocked version of the device would receive every software update within 15 days of Google's first push to their own devices. This was a pretty bold claim, and one which HTC soon appeared to abandon as the rollout of updates to the One A9 have been few and far between.

Well, the wait is finally over. HTC has confirmed its Android 7.0 Nougat update for all HTC One A9 smartphones based in Europe already, and now it's rolling out in India. The latest update to Indian HTC One A9 devices is build number 2.18.707.1 and it comes with the March security patch. The update will weigh in at about 1.05 GB.

As this will be released as an OTA update, it may take a few days for the update to reach your device. If you're curious, or just getting sick of waiting, you can manually check to see if the update is available by going into Settings > Check for updates

HTC One A9 Android Marshmallow update

The HTC One A9 came with Android Marshmallow installed. It was the first device behind Google's own Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P to do this. HTC has promised that the One A9 will receive further firmware updates within 15 days of the Nexus range.

While HTC US President Jason Mackenzie had previously stated that monthly security updates to the device were "unrealistic", the company seems to have backpedalled on this. HTC stated in November that unlocked US devices would indeed receieve monthly security updates.

The first such update began rolling out on 20 November. It contained minor camera and battery life improvements alongside the security update.

Do you own the HTC One A9? Have you received the security update? Let us know in the comments.
