HTC 10 set to be updated to Android Nougat very soon, starting in the US on Friday

HTC’s 2016 flagship — dubbed simply the HTC 10 — is due to receive Android Nougat as soon as this Friday, provided it’s an unlocked handset, and in the US. HTC USA took to Twitter over the weekend to announce the update:

The update is quite likely a bit further away for HTC 10 users in Australia, as it isn’t listed on the major carriers’ software update pages and there’s been nothing heard from HTC Australia on the subject just yet. However, once the update is released elsewhere, there’s a very good chance that the update files will find their way to places like XDA, so you can — if you’re game — grab the update ahead of the official rollout here in Australia.

As usual, once we know more, we’ll let you know.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
