HTC One A9 will get Android updates 15 days after Nexus phones

HTC unveiled the One A9, the company’s new U.S. flagship smartphone, on Tuesday. Pre-orders are opening up now, and while $399 will get you some pretty solid hardware, it’s also going to promise you a decent software experience.

HTC’s U.S. president Jason Mackenzie said during the phone’s announcement that HTC will provide “every software update within 15 days of Google’s first push to Nexus.” That means that you’ll get future updates to Android 6.0 Marshmallow about two weeks after Google pushes it to the Nexus devices, and it also suggests that you’ll receive the update pretty quickly next year, too.

That’s, of course, if HTC keeps its promise. Also, keep in mind that this applies to the unlocked version of the One M9. HTC might have a hard time keeping that promise with carrier versions, which will be at the mercy of each individual carrier before updates are applied.
