HTC is now rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for unlocked versions of the One A9. The release brings performance enhancements, new features, a bunch of new emoji, and Google’s latest Android security patch for January.
The One A9 made its debut in October 2015, so it’s well over a year old now. This will likely be the last major Android upgrade it receives, then — but it’s a significant one.
The update brings everything you would expect from Nougat, including improved Doze for better battery life, split-screen multitasking, the Unicode 9.0 emoji set with over 70 new characters, and support for the Vulkan API that provides greater gaming experiences.
HTC also promises unspecified “system enhancements” that should lead to greater performance and stability, and Android’s latest security patch.
According to HTC tipster @LlabTooFer, this update is currently reaching unlocked versions of the One A9, but those tied to carriers can expect to receive it as soon as it has gained approval. The update requires a Wi-Fi connection and at least 50 percent battery life for installation.
