HTC Readying Android 7.0 Nougat For Release Before December

HTC 10 white
Around this time of year, just after a release of a new Android version, manufacturers are always busy working on getting their phones updated. One such manufacturer, HTC, seems to have been especially busy and has not just got a stable release ready to go on their 2016 flagship, the HTC 10 but also on some other devices.

Today a leak, or rumour if you’d rather call it that, has intimated that the release of Android 7.0 for the European version of the HTC 10 will occur very soon. LlabTooFeR has tweeted out a series of screenshots from the Nougat build running on a HTC 10, also saying that it is stable. If you look through his/her Twitter feed you will also see that it will be ready by the end of November and that there is also a Nougat ROM for the HTC M9 and A9 in testing.

Looking through the screenshots show that Android 7.0 Nougat looks very close to stock Google Android on the HTC device. I have to admit that it has been a while since I have used a HTC phone extensively and am pleasantly surprised with what HTC have done. Have a look through the screenshots below and judge for yourself.

While we do not have any word from HTC Australia when the Australian devices will receive the update we can only assume that it will be not long after the European version is rolled out. HTC have been very good with updates recently so we expect Australian devices to receive a very nice Christmas present from HTC.
