Few hours ago Google unravelled the mystery behind the name of the next Android version. The company has finally given a name to its next mobile OS version and will be called Android 7.0 “Nougat”. One of the Taiwanese tech giants, HTC , just a few hours after the Android Nougat revelation confirmed that the OS version will be arriving on few of its flagship smartphones.
HTC via its Twitter account posted an image showing the three handsets that would be receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update. The handsets that will be getting the update are HTC 10, HTC One A9, and HTC One M9.
“So sweet. Android Nougat—the next version of Google’s Android—will be coming to the HTC 10, HTC One A9 & HTC One M9,” the post said.
As for other HTC devices, HTC UK posted that the company will announce more devices that will be receiving the update, later this year, when Google makes it available to OEMs.
These three smartphones in the first round of Android 7.0 Nougat update was expected, given that they are the company’s most recent flagship handsets. While the HTC One M9 was launched with Android 5.1 Lollipop and later got Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, the HTC One A9 and HTC 10 came with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
For those unaware, HTC is also being rumoured to work with Google once again to launch two Nexus-branded smartphones later this year. The smartphones are likely to sport Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. The Android 7.0 Nougat will also be reaching Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, and Pixel C tablet.
