New updates reveal that T-Mobile mistakenly announces Android 7.0 Nougat update for HTC One M8. The reports stated that T-Mobile, in an unexpected turn of events, announced that it has already finished testing the Android 7.0 Nougat for the HTC One (M8). It also noted that the update should now be available for download.

However, this announcement came as a surprise to many, as it feels strange to imagine that a three-year-old phone is still getting a major software update like Android 7.0 Nougat. Many fans believe this could be a mistake on the part of T-Mobile, while others think that if it isn't a mistake, then it is great to find out that HTC is still supporting its HTC One M8 smartphone that was launched since March 2014.

If fans can recall, last year, T-Mobile and other United States carriers pushed Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the HTC One M8, according to Phonearena. The HTC One M8 was initially launched with Android KitKat OS but was later upgraded to Android Marshmallow.

Currently, it is been reported that T-Mobile updated its online support page on March 24, 2017, to inform HTC One M8 smartphone users that they can now download Android 7.0 Nougat updates for their devices. According to HNGN, previous reports noted that the Taiwanese technology company has ruled out all possibilities of rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update to HTC One M8 smartphones.

It is also reported that T-Mobile HTC One M8 users would have to wait for the Android 7.0 Nougat update notification to appear on the device, but it is not clear when this notification would arrive. Users can also proceed to check for the Android 7.0 Nougat update by on the HTC One M8 Settings menu. The Android 7.0 Nougat was released by Google in August last year and has already been push out to most smartphones in the tech market either unlocked or the carrier-based.
