HTC One S9 Android Nougat Update Info, Release Date & Features

Posted by

HTC One S9 was launched in April 2016, and it comes with a 5.0-inch 1080p display. The phone has Mediatek MT6795 Helio X10 processor along with 2 GB 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 One S9 has a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 4-megapixel front-facing camera and there is a 2840 mAh battery in the phone. The sensors include are accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass. The dimensions of the phone include 144.6 x 69.7 x 10.1 mm and it weighs 158 gm. It is a Single SIM phone with support for 4G connectivity.


HTC One S9 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. Marshmallow is the current latest version of Android before Nougat, and thus it is expected that the phone might get the Android Nougat 7.0 update in the near future, though the company has not given any confirmation about the same. If it is to get the update, you might see it in the first quarter or second of 2017 and we will update this article with the relevant information.
