Only hours after Google announced the release of Android 6.0.1, the Taiwanese distributor HTC announced that their brand new flag ship model, the HTC One A9 will be getting Android 6.0.1 by the end of the year.
HTC One A9 will be getting Android 6.0.1:
It didn’t take for Mo Versi, VP of product management for HTC, to announce that their newest Android Flagship phone, the HTC One A9 will be getting Android 6.0.1 within the next couple of weeks. Android 6.0.1 was only just announced with some interesting tweaks and emojis.
Of course, the HTC One A9 already ships with Android 6 Marshmallow, but that fact that they are racing to get the latest update out to their flagship shows that they are committed to keep their devices both competitive and secure, since Android 6.0.1 also includes the December security update. HTC had already stated that the A9 would get every Android update within 15 days of the release being available for Nexus devices (if you live in the USA that is, but we can hope that would propagate worldwide).
What’s more, HTC also confirmed that their previous flagship model, the One M9 will also be updated soon to get Android 6 Marshmallow, just weeks after it was announced that the One M8 was being updated to Android 6 Marshmallow. Yet again, this shows that HTC is one for sitting on its laurels when it has released a device, and is passionate about getting not only the latest features in to its users’ hands, but the latest security updates too. Of course, the M9 and M8 won’t be able to use the flagship feature of Marshmallow as it has no fingerprint sensor, but the rest of the features should work nicely with the older phones.
We currently have the HTC One A9 in for review, and can’t wait to show it to you. An unboxing video will be released very shortly.
