In what seems like a move to prove that HTC is indeed close to rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to its flagship, the leakster has tweeted a series of screenshots of the firmware running stable on the device.

HTC had earlier said that it had received the final shipping of Android 7.0 Nougat software from Google and that its roll out will begin soon. It said that the new firmware would be rolled out to the unlocked HTC 10 in the fourth quarter of this year amd that it would come to the unlocked One M9 and One A9, and carrier versions a little later.

It is not sure if the HTC One M9 and One A9 will receive Android 7.0 Nougat update this year or next year.

It is still not known if HTC's popular devices like the HTC Desire 820, HTC Desire 826, HTC ME, HTC One E9, HTC Butterfly 3, HTC M8 EYE, HTC 816, HTC One (M8 Eye), HTC One M8 and HTC One E8 will get the firmware.
