HTC Desire 828 Android Nougat Update Info, Release Date & Features

HTC Desire 828 Marhsmallow Update:

Since HTC Desire runs on Android 5 Lollipop still, it would make more sense to expect Marhsmallow update release than expecting a direct update to Android Nougat. Although it is not something unseen, it is very uncommon for smartphones skip a version and upgrade to the next one.

So HTC Desire 828 is also waited to be updates to Android Marshmallow 6 before Nougat 7 which would be possible in the second half of 2018 if Marshmallow is released in the first half of the year.

Expecting an Oreo update for HTC Desire 828 is even more absurd at the moment but it is one of the smart devices that would receive the update finally even if it is not soon.

So for now, when your Desre 828 is upgradable to Marshmallow, download and install the update and enjoy it while waiting for the next possible Nougat or Oreo update.

Below in this page, we will be giving you information about Android Nougat features expected in HTC Desire phones when the time comes and it is updated.

HTC Desire 828 was launched in November 2015, and it comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display. The phone has Mediatek MT6753 processor along with 2GB of RAM and 16 GB internal storage, and a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. The HTC phones usually come with a good software with their own Sense UI but the problem with the phones and the company is that they don’t seem very strong with the software support later and thus, the software updates are not guaranteed.

The HTC Desire 828 has a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 4-megapixel front-facing camera and there is a 2800 mAh battery in the phone. The sensors included are accelerometer, proximity, and compass. The dimensions of the phone include 157.7 x 78.9 x 7.9 mm and it weighs 148 gm. It is a Dual SIM phone with support for 4G connectivity.

HTC Desire 828 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop OS. Lollipop is not the current latest version and it is before Marshmallow, so you cannot expect the company to release a Nougat update because the phone is still pending to get even a Marshmallow update, so the chances for the latest Android 7.0 update are very less. If at all the company chooses to give it a straight update from Lollipop to Nougat, we will update you in this same page, so keep subscribed and bookmark this page for future updates.
