As promised, HTC has quickly been updating its One A9 smartphone with the December version of Android’s latest security patches and US carrier AT&T has this week begun rolling the update out to consumers. The announcement was made yesterday by HTC’s Vice President of Product Management, Mo Versi.

AT&T HTC One A9 customers may have already spotted an OTA update notification come through, or can expect to see one in the coming days. If not, you can always force a check manually by heading on over to the settings menu. As well as a new security update, the OTA also includes some unspecified improvements to the handset’s camera.

December’s Android security patch includes a number of high alert and critical issues, including one that could enable remote code execution through email, MMS and websites. Fortunately, Google states that it hasn’t received any reports of consumer handsets actually being exploited by these new issues.

The Marshmallow powered HTC One A9 is scheduled to go on sale in India early next week and has also been promised an update to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow later in December. It’s great to see that HTC is managing to stick with its update and security promises for its latest smartphone.
