- HTC 10 Gets The Android 7.0 Nougat
Although Taiwanese Smartphone company, HTC launched interim flagship devices at the CES 2017, the HTC U Ultra and the U-Play which boasts a wide range of customizable features, the smartphone company has stated that it is not yet done for the year as it hinted that it might be launching their new flagship smartphone later in the year which will be sporting the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC.
This further lends credibility to the claims that Samsung is hoarding the circulation of the fastest processor for the release of the much awaited Samsung Galaxy S8 device.
HTC has however hinted that it will be launching the Snapdragon 835 chipsets powered smartphone before the year runs out and tech enthusiasts believe it will make a debut on the HTC 11 smartphone.
However, focusing on the HTC 10 which was released in 2016 and is arguably the best smartphone from the OEM since inception, the HD audio sporting device has started receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update.
However, on the bright side, the update which began rolling out to unlocked devices since November 25 said the vice president of the company, Mo Versi has started on a region-wide tour. The Taiwanese smartphone company’s Vice president in his announcement made via Twitter failed to mention the regions which will be getting the updates first and so caused a bit of confusion as several users could not wait to get the new OS running on their devices.
The update, however, packs quite an upgrade for the HTC sense which the OEM has dedicated its time to improving through listening to its audience and reviews of the HTC sense. On the updates, HTC worked closely with Google to churn out what has been described as the best HTC Sense build yet as the new update works to limit a whole range of duplicating apps including the Calendar app.
The notification menu also comes close to what has been featured on the Google Nexus platform with similar icon design and the color schemes.
The HTC 10 sporting a Snapdragon 820 processor with the 4GB of RAM still owns the market in specific regions although it was dwarfed by the likes of Samsung, LG and others. However, it is expected that the HTC 11 will make a loud bang when it is released later in the year according to projections.
