Nougat 7.0 Is Now Being Rolled Out To The HTC 10 In The US

HTC has now begun rolling out the Nougat 7.0 update to the unlocked variants of the HTC 10. The rollout began on Friday and hence can be considered as a Thanksgiving present from HTC, well at least, this should be the case for those of you who own a HTC 10.

The update weighs a mammoth 1.11GB and brings with it the SenseUI 8.0 topped on Nougat 7.0. SenseUI is HTC's own customised skin of Android, just like Samsung's TouchWiz and Xiaomi's MIUI. The update also incorporates the latest November 5 security patch as well.

However, the update is currently being rolled out only to the unlocked HTC 10 in the United States. Carrier locked variants of the device will be getting the update early next year. HTC had earlier promised that it will be making the Nougat update available to the eligible devices within a span of 90 days, after Nougat had been released by Google on August 22. HTC seems to be living up to it's promise for the HTC 10, but it is yet to extend the update to other eligible devices such as the HTC M9. Buck up HTC!

With the Android Marshmallow update, HTC had removed all the bloatware that it's previous firmwares or updates had. You can expect a similar bloat free experience with this update as well.

The worldwide rollout of the update is also expected to start from next month onward. HTC has said that they are "working hard to bring it (the update) to other regions". HTC tipster LlabTooFeR had earlier mentioned that the Nougat update will be extended to the HTC 10 owners in European countries by late November or early December. Since LlabTooFeR has been a reliable source of HTC leaks in the past, we may as well have full faith in his claims regarding the Nougat update timeline for the HTC 10.

The Nougat update brings with it an improved quick settings panel, new notification design and multi window support. To know more about the features offered by Android Nougat, please refer to our detailed analysis by clicking here.
