The update is expected to be released later this year where it will naturally make its way onto Nexus devices first. That leaves the question of which non-Nexus devices will be eligible for the update, and more importantly when will the update be released?

While we’re waiting on other OEMs to make their announcements, HTC has come forward to confirm that at least three of their smartphones will be on the receiving end of the Nougat update. This includes the HTC 10, the HTC One M9, and the HTC One A9. According to HTC, “So sweet. Android Nougat—the next version of Google’s Android—will be coming to the HTC 10, HTC One A9 & HTC One M9.”

While other HTC devices were not announced, it does not mean that they will not receive the update. It is possible that these are the more obvious devices from HTC that will be updated, and we expect that further down the line and with testing, HTC could be adding other devices to the list, so we’ll just have to remain patient.

Other OEMs have yet to confirm the update for their phones, but it is probably safe to assume that if you bought a phone this year, or if it is a flagship handset like the LG G5 or the Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge/Note 7, then you should be able to expect the update as well, but we’ll be on the lookout for any announcements from other companies all the same.
