Great news from HTC for those of you have a One M9, One A9 or are considering a HTC 10 as your next device. All three of these will be seeing the Android N update when it is released by Google. The information came from HTC’s main Twitter account and it makes HTC, outside of Google, one of the first manufactures to commit to the new version of Android.
Life is about to get a little sweeter. Android N will be coming to the HTC 10, HTC One A9 and the HTC One M9. pic.twitter.com/XzOEwTCVlU

The tricky bit, of course, is when exactly it will be available. HTC did not make that clear in their Tweet nor did they in replies to it.
That timing is a bit out of HTC’s hands to be fair. Google still has to release N to the manufactures that that probably won’t happen until July at the earliest. Once that happens, it will take a few
weeks or even months for HTC to get the release built and prepped for their devices. If I had to guess, I would say the October/November timeframe and the HTC 10 is going to see it first. Nexus owners, however, will still have the release first.
The early commitment is great to see and hopefully other manufactures will do the same. I’m sure folks who have purchased a Samsung Galaxy S7 would like to know it is going to see N – or when.
