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!

Good for you HTC. Idk if this will be enough to save you, but I hope so. I like variety and I think HTC makes decent phones, they've just did a string of stupid things of late starting with micro-pixels or whatever they were.

You mean the ultrapixel shenanigan. Oops, it's not worth more than a selfie cam!

Yeah. That crap. Then the M9 with no fast charging, wireless charging, crap camera, 810 then the overall lack of progress from the M8 the silly tattoo version and poor sales/stock plummet they need some good news.

I would have strongly considered the m8 if it stopped using that...

I would have too. It was #1 on my list, but I didn't like the camera results and the height of the phone. At that time I kept my phone in my front pocket of my uniform and the M8 would have stuck out. I got the G2 instead and did not regret it once. Before that I had bought a DNA instead of an M7 b/c it wasn't supposed to come to Verizon at that time. I did root the DNA and ran the HTC One rom on it.
