However, this rollout may only be accessible in the United States and owners of the locked carriers, bloatware-loaded HTC versions, as always, will have to be patient as they will be able to access the latest Android OS on their handsets, later on.The HTC One A9 was launched with a pre-loaded Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, which made it the first smartphone that wasn’t in the Nexus line to feature the software out of the box. This new update will bring to the One A9 users, minor improvements to the phone, bug fixes along with new emoji options.As for users of the One M9 flagship device, it will be their first time to enjoy Google’s latest Android Marshmallow software system.
