HTC 10 Sense Feature Focus-10

Update, December 2: HTC has uploaded the Nougat files to its download page, so if you haven’t received the OTA update yet you can go ahead and flash it yourself. You’ll also need HTC Sync Manager installed.

Original post, November 25: Mo Versi, the VP of Product Management over at HTC USA, has announced some great news via his Twitter account. Starting today, unlocked versions of the HTC 10 will start receiving a software update to the latest and greatest Android Nougat. Carrier versions of the device should, hopefully, start getting the update shortly, although no time frame has been given so far.

Unfortunately, the tweet doesn’t specify whether the update will be rolled out globally or just in the US. But even if it does hit the devices in ‘the land of the free’ first, we do expect that the update will soon reach HTC 10 users in other parts of the world as well.

After the HTC 10, the Taiwan-based company will probably release the Nougat update for some of their other devices as well. The newly announced Bolt, known as the 10 evo in Europe, already runs on Google’s latest version of OS. So that means that the next devices in line should be the last year’s flagship One M9 and the One A9. However, HTC has not given any info on when the update for these two devices will be ready, so we can only hope to see them both soon.

Do you own an unlocked version of the HTC 10? Have you received the update yet? Let us know what you think of it.
