Sprint's HTC One M9 is now enjoying the sweet taste of Android Nougat

8
The Sprint version of the HTC One M9, the manufacturer's 2015 flagship phone, is in the process of receiving the update to Android 7.0 Nougat. A screenshot showing off the System update information related to the update was disseminated via tweet, apparently by a Sprint subscriber whose One M9 received the 1.02GB update OTA. The new software version is 4.27.651.4.

Once you receive notification that the update has arrived, before you actually install it, make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network. At the same time, due to the large size of the files being transferred, Sprint recommends that you keep your phone plugged in during the entire updating process. Besides the updated Android OS build, the update includes the February 2017 security update and system performance enhancements.

Android 7.0 comes with Multi-Window and Split-Screen multi-tasking capabilities, the latest emoji from Unicode 9.0, Data Saver that allows you to stretch out your monthly data cap, customizable Quick Settings, the ability to respond to messages straight from a notification, and the "clear-all" button that allows you to close all open apps with the tap of a button.

If you are a Sprint customer with the HTC One M9, keep your eyes peeled for the notification that tells you Android 7.0 has arrived on your handset. Because the update is being sent out OTA, it is done on a staggered basis. That means that you might not receive the update for a few days. Be patient and before you know it, you will be enjoying the new features that come with the update.
