HTC smartphones will say “hello” to Android N soon


HTC made an announcement on Twitter to let their customers know Android N is right around the corner. Devices like the new HTC 10 and One A9 as well as last year’s One M9 will get Google’s Android N software and are listed as “coming.”

Google’s early release of the Developer Preview will contribute to an earlier than usual arrival of the updated platform on already released smartphones. By releasing a preview of the Android N build early, manufacturers like HTC were able to get a head start on modifying it for their devices. HTC stated earlier that their new flagship the HTC 10, as well as the One A9 and One M9 will be updated to Android N. Now, it will take some time of course to pass through carriers and what not, but it’s expected to arrive far earlier than past years.

HTC posted “life is about to get a little sweeter,” referring to Android N. The update will include several new features like direct replies, better graphic performance, new emojis, and more. We still don’t know what the version will be called, but we will know for a fact before the update makes way to the HTC smartphones listed above. We’re expecting other manufacturers to give insight on when and which of their own devices will be updated, as the week goes on.
