HTC 10 gets Android Nougat on Verizon

HTC 10 Android flagship gets Nougat update on Verizon Wireless

This flagship on Verizon Wireless gets the update more than four months after its unlocked siblings received Android 7.0 in the US. The official change log is not available yet, but it should come with the latest security patch from Google included.

Unlocked HTC 10 flagships in the US received the Android Nougat update last year, back in late November. In the meantime, T-Mobile and Sprint released the new firmware as well, the first one in January and the other in February. Now, the time has finally arrived for Verizon Wireless customers who use the HTC 10 to get Android 7.0.

Yesterday, Mo Versi posted the following message on Twitter: "HTC 10 Verizon owners! Greatly appreciate all your patience and support. N OS is here! We have TA and OTA to start on Thur 3/30. Thank you!" Since Verizon Wireless did not update the support page for HTC 10 yet, we can assume that the new firmware will not come with any surprises.

The usual Nougat features should all be there - improved Doze mode for increased autonomy, split-screen mode, quick app switching, redesigned notifications, as well as the usual tweaks and fixes. The update should also come with the latest security patch issued by Google.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
