Third time lucky? Android 7.0 Nougat rollout resumes (again) for the HTC 10 in Europe

HTC was one of the first companies to begin upgrading its devices to Android 7.0 Nougat, starting with its 10 flagship back in November. However, the rollout was 'paused' in January due to software bugs, but it quickly resumed with its official release in the UK and mainland Europe just over a week later.

But days after that, HTC revealed that its rollout in continental Europe had been suspended as a result of an unspecified "technical issue", which did not affect users in the UK, or those in Russia, Turkey, the Middle East, and various other markets.

Today, HTC's Product and Service Director for the EMEA region revealed that the company has now resumed its over-the-air rollout in mainland Europe for the 10. HTC had made the update available a few days ago as a download "for experts" to manually wipe their devices and install Android 7.0, but general OTA availability for all HTC 10 owners has now resumed. The new OTA update will perform like other OS upgrades, installing the new Android version without wiping users' data.

HTC has also started upgrading its One M9 and unlocked One A9 handsets to Nougat in certain markets over the last few weeks. As with all major update rollouts, it will take time for Android 7.0 to make its way to all eligible devices around the world.
