Unlocked HTC 10 units in the US get June security patch
Unlocked HTC 10 units in North America are now receiving the Android security patch for the month of June. Furthermore, the carrier-free HTC 10 is also getting a minor firmware update.

Yesterday, HTC started pushing a new software update for the unlocked version of its flagship smartphone. The update to software version 1.80.617.1 measures a little over 300MB in size, which means that you should probably download it over a Wi-Fi connection.

The June security patch has already rolled out to Nexus devices at the start of the month. Samsung was quick to update its flagships to the latest Android security update and now it looks like HTC is ready to do the same.

Aside from the security update for the month of June, software build 1.80.617.1 for the HTC 10 also includes a minor firmware update. According to the manufacturer, the new firmware solves various bugs and also improves the stability of the handset. This past weekend, HTC also updated the camera app with improvements to main/front camera switching, RAW capture performance, as well as general performance improvements. 

As it turns out, HTC is committed to pushing Android security patches as early as possible, which is definitely a habit that its customers will appreciate. The HTC One A9 from last year should receive its June security patch as well in the near future.
