Unlocked HTC 10 units begin receiving Nougat update in the U.S.

The HTC 10 is getting its Nougat update a week after its kin, the Bolt, shipped with Android 7.0 on board.

According to HTC VP of Product Management, Mo Versi, unlocked versions of the HTC 10 in the U.S. will begin receiving Android 7.0 Nougat on November 25. European variants of the unlocked HTC 10 will get it soon, but this surely begins the phone's inevitable succession to the latest Android version, with carriers likely rolling out the update in the coming weeks.

The HTC 10 hasn't received the critical accolades of the Galaxy S7 or Google Pixel this year, but it's a very solid device, likely significantly improved with the bump to Nougat. We're looking forward to trying it ourselves very soon!
