HTC: "Android N is coming to the HTC 10, One A9 and One M9"

Since Google released Android 6.0 Marshmallow seven months ago, that version of the OS has made its way to just 7.5% of active Android devices - but the next version is already on the horizon. Google said today that Android N is expected to launch this summer - which means it remains on track with its roadmap - but inevitably, that raises fresh questions over which devices will be officially supported by the upgrade.

Coinciding with Google's I/O developer conference today, HTC has now answered that question - partially, at least:

The tweet confirms that Android N will be available for the HTC 10, One A9 and One M9, which isn't at all surprising, when you consider that those are three of the company's newest handsets. But if you own an older HTC device, don't despair.

The footnote on the image in the tweet points out that "timing and additional devices to receive the update will be announced later this year when Google ships Android N to manufacturers".

The good news, then, is that we can infer that the three handsets HTC referred to do not represent a complete or exhaustive list of devices that it will upgrade to Android N. The bad news, of course, is that we still don't know which devices will be upgraded besides those already mentioned.
