HTC One A9 will get an update to Android 6.0.1 very very soon. This is the luckiest single Android device on the market at the moment because it is getting an update that only Nexus devices are enjoying at the moment. This smartphone is hooked up to Google somehow because it is getting updates sooner than most other OEM devices and it is receiving the monthly security patches well ahead of other flagships.
HTC One A9 unlocked was the first to get Android 6.0.1 at the end of 2015, and now the Sprint carrier version is getting the same treatment.
This brings A9 to version 1.57.651.1, which brings about the new Android 6.0.1 emojis with some improvements and the following enhancements:
- Marshmallow 6.0.1 update
- Battery life improvements
- addition of Wi-Fi Calling functionality
- camera feature improvements
- system enhancements.
The OTA should already be on route to HTC One A9 devices. Just in case you’re not seeing the notification on your device yet, you should be patient because the release could be somewhat slow. Of course, you can grab the 1.86GB RUU file and flash it manually. If you do this you will lose your data forever, so be cautious. Or you can just wait for the update to reach you.
