We reported earlier this week that HTC was rumored to bring Android 7.0 to several handsets, including the HTC 10. It appears the rumor was true, as HTC announced via its U.S. Twitter page that the 10 would start getting the update this previous Friday. 

The update is a welcome one, as Nougat brings some great features. On top of the usual stability and security tweaks, the Android update improves multi-window support, quick settings, and notifications. HTC has been known to use a very clean and light skin on top of Android, keeping useful features like BlinkFeed. This update should be very similar and keep the device running smoothly.

The rollout to Nougat began on Friday, so more devices should be seeing the update soon. As is typically the case, the time frame for availability will most likely depend on the individual user’s cell network provider. Note that the update is only for HTC 10 devices in the United States. HTC hasn’t released word on when other regions will receive the update.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
