Nougat Update Rollout For the HTC One A9 Begins Tonight
Many of the HTC users here will be curious regarding the Nougat updates on the HTC devices. Last month, as you may know, HTC had rolled out a Nougat update for the HTC 10 and now the story continues for the HTC One A9 users. HTC USA's Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi took to Twitter to confirm the update rollout for the One A9.
The HTC One A9 is powered by the 1.5GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 SoC, and is one of only a handful of phones that have adopted this processor. Compared to its series predecessors, the 615 and 616, the 617 has been designed to offer better performance and battery life as well as higher LTE speeds, better Wi-Fi handling capabilities, and support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.
The HTC One A9 supports Quick Charge 2.0 out-of-the-box, but unfortunately doesn't ship with a compatible charger and seems like a blatant case of cost cutting. However, we tried charging the one with a third-party Quick Charge 2.0-compatible charger, and charging is more quicker.
One A9 also has 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (expandable by up to 200GB using a microSD card), Wi-Fi 802.11n as well as 802.11ac, and 4G connectivity on its single nano-SIM slot (FDD Band 3 and TDD Band 40 both supported). There's also a 2150mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.1 with apt-X, and HTC's Boomsound audio enhancement software built in.
Overall, it seems that the One A9 is going to run a smooth Nougat version of Android and we expect it to perform better at these specifications. The update is said to roll out tonight to the unlocked variants of the One A9 and we are really waiting for it inevitably. Currently there is no news as to when the carrier locked variants of the device will get the update, however as we had seen in the case of the HTC 10, we do hope that the carrier locked variants will get the update soon too. So let's see what's in account of the One A9 users.
