As promised, the unlocked HTC One M9 is starting to receive Android 6.0 today
A tweet sent yesterday from HTC's VP of product management Mo Versi, said that the unlocked HTC One M9 and unlocked HTC One A9 would both be receiving their new system updates within 24 hours. We now have some photographic proof that the One M9 is beginning to receive Android 6.0, sent out OTA. It actually takes two updates for the One M9 to complete the task. The first one, which preps the phone to receive Marshmallow, weighs in at 99.47MB and is software version 2.11.617.180. The second one is a much larger 1.21GB in size, and is software version 3.35.617.12.

Android 6.0 adds a new battery management feature called Doze. As the name suggests, Doze will put your phone in a deep sleep state, increasing standby time and the battery life. The change to app permissions allows you to approve or deny permissions on a feature-by-feature basis. And Google Now on Tap brings contextual search to your phone. Google will show you search results based on the content displayed on your device.

When the update comes, make sure that you are on a Wi-Fi network before starting the process of downloading and installing it. You should also make sure that your battery is charged to at least 50%..

If you have the unlocked HTC One A9, you should start receiving the update to Android 6.0.1 today. Once you get the notification that the update has arrived, we suggest that you also hook up to a Wi-Fi network and charge your battery before updating the phone.


Thanks for the tip!
