A leakster has revealed that the Android 7.0 Nougat update will hit the HTC 10 smartphones being sold in Europe either by the end of November or early December. Thus, @LlabTooFeR has at least given hope that the update is just a few weeks away and it is happening until and unless there are any last-minute delays.

HTC had earlier officially said that the HTC 10 would be getting the Android 7.0 Nougat update by the end of this year. It specifically mentioned end of the fourth quarter, which could have meant anytime between October-December 2016. At least now fans have some confirmation, thanks to the tipster, reports GSMArena.

“HTC 10 (EU) to receive Android 7.0 update by the end of November - begging of the December,” LlabTooFeR tweeted.

It may be assumed that the HTC 10 devices that have been sold unlocked will be getting the Android update first. Next it will be followed by the ones purchased from carriers. Thus, for the unlocked owners, there may not be much waiting after the update is released in Europe. There is no news yet on when the update will make its way to HTC 10 devices sold in other territories.

As per Android Central, the coming weeks will be busy for Android updates because there is a possibility of Nougat OTAs from both HTC and Samsung before December ends. The tipster has also mentioned in a separate tweet that Google Pixel and Pixel XL devices are testing a new updated Android 7.1.1.

The HTC 10 handset was released in May and in the past, the company has always promised to deliver the latest Android software to its flagship sets within 90 days of it first being made available to developers, writes Android Authority.
