The Android 7.0 Nougat OS update has been among one of the most awaited updates on various smartphones. The update is being adapted to a large number of devices rather quickly than most years, and the market share is already beyond 1% by now. The latest smartphone to get the update is the Sprint HTC One A9. While the unlocked users got this update in January, the Sprint users are getting the update now.

HTC has officially announced it on their support page that the Sprint HTC One A9 users are soon going to get this update. While the company has stated that the Android 7.0 Nougat OS update for Sprint HTC One A9 is 1.86 GB in size, a user who actually got the update has commented on Twitter stating that the update weighs in at 1.08GB in size.

This update brings out not just the Android 7.0 Nougat OS for HTC One A9, but also updates the security patch to January Android Security Patch, making the phone more secure from any threats. While the update for the Sprint HTC One A9 came out a little late after the unlocked version, users are just glad to get this update. It is a little disappointing that it is still Android 7.0 Nougat OS and not the Android 7.1, but it’s still quite an improvement over Marshmallow.

The Android 7.0 Nougat OS update for Sprint HTC One A9 comes named “software update¬†2.18.651.2”. This is an OTA update, but for users who prefer to do it manually, the HTC Sync Manager tool is available for the same. Sprint and HTC have quite a history, as the company recently launched the HTC “Bolt” device with Sprint, showcasing Sprint’s high speed download abilities.
