European HTC One A9s receiving their 7.0 Nougat updates

One of HTC's promises for the One A9 was that it would receive all updates within 15 days of Nexus devices. The first one or two security patches came on time, but the Taiwanese company virtually gave up after that. It took until January of this year for the US unlocked A9 to receive Nougat, and another month on top of that for the Sprint model. Now, the European A9 is receiving this long-awaited update.

[Update: RUU] T-Mobile variant of the HTC One M9 starts receiving Nougat

HTC hasn't been doing the best in recent years, even squandering an attempt to revitalize itself with the U Ultra. Still, the former Android king is trying to keep its phones updated, even some of its older ones. Previously, several international versions of the One M9 started to receive Nougat. The U.S. is quite a bit behind, it seems, but it looks like the T-Mobile variant is the first to get the update.

HTC's U Ultra doesn't fare well against JerryRigEverything's wrath, proves that it's not great at anything

Despite its great looks, the HTC U Ultra wasn't very well received by the press. In his review of the U Ultra, David absolutely ripped the phone apart, saying that it's unclear why the phone exists at all, and that HTC should go back to the drawing board. One of David's complaints about the phone was how easily the display scratched. In his latest video, JerryRigEverything proves that there's a lot more wrong with the phone's durability than that.

Leaked screenshot hints at a new HTC Edge Sense feature and/or phone

HTC is about to get edgy, if these recent leaked screenshots are to be believed. The company might be working on a new flagship device with high end specs like a Snapdragon 835, 5.5" display, 4/6GB RAM and 64GB storage, USB-C, Android 7.1.1, and a new mysterious "Edge Sense" feature that has something to do with the borders of this specific phone.

Our only hint is a toggle in the settings for "Edge Sense" with an icon that looks like a finger reaching for the edge of the device. One interpretation could be that HTC is following in the footsteps of Samsung and going with a curved display, allowing it to implement gestures and actions on the side of the display.

We're finally getting a good, steady stream of Android 7.0 updates for major smartphones.

The page says that software update 2.18.651.2 includes an upgrade to Nougat, as well as bringing the core security patch up to January of this year.

HTC is working on a mobile VR product for U Ultra, "not a phone slapped onto a headset"

Mobile virtual reality hasn't really struck a chord with consumers. Content for Google Daydream is lacking, and Samsung's Gear VR platform isn't doing much better. HTC's president of global sales, Chia-lin Chang, has revealed that the company is working on its own mobile VR product - and it's "not a phone slapped onto a headset."
