Google released Android 7.0 Nougat a few days back. The update is available immediately to the supported Nexus devices (Nexus 6 and newer devices are supported). But the owners of all the devices other than Nexus would have to wait for some time to get the update. Now it is up to the manufacturers that when they release the update for their devices.
HTC officially announced the Android Nougat update for some of its flagship devices today. In a tweet, HTC mentioned that the HTC 10 will get the update in Q4 this year, which means that the update will be available before the end of this year. HTC One M9 and HTC One A9 will follow the update procedure shortly after that.

These release dates are for the unlocked version of these devices. Carrier locked devices will have to wait for the approval from their respective carriers which may take some more weeks or even months to get the update.
There is no mention of HTC One M8, which was the last year’s flagship. We hope that it will get the update but there is no official date for that or HTC might simply ditch the M8.
What do you think?
