HTC confirms Android N will arrive on flagship devices

by

HTC 10

HTC has confirmed the new Android N operating system - whatever it may be called - will be available on its three leading smartphones.

In a tweet posted during Google I/O, the Taiwanese company said Android N will arrive on the new HTC 10, as well as 2015’s HTC One M9 and HTC One A9.

While that’s to be expected, what’s less clear is when it’ll actually happen. Indeed, when HTC says "about to," it probably means "around this time next year... if you're lucky."

HTC has been a little more efficient than some manufacturers when updating its smartphones to the latest versions of Android, although that isn't saying much.

Android Marshmallow has been around since October 2015, some device owners on select carriers (for example are still waiting for the update

Also, following the I/O keynote, we still don’t know when the consumer edition of Android N will be available.

Google is making a beta available from today and is allowing the public to vote on the name.

Hi, thanks for the article! I work for HTC. The author of the article states: "Although few Android phone makers can say otherwise, HTC has hardly been among the most efficient when updating its smartphones to the latest versions of Android." On the contrary, Computerworld has independently ranked HTC as second only to Google itself for software updates: http://www.computerworld.co...

Further, the author writes: "Android Marshmallow has been around since October 2015 and few owners of the HTC One M9 have had access to the update." This is false. M9's update to Marshmallow has rolled out to devices worldwide.

Perhaps the author has HTC confused with another manufacturer?
