Lollipop coming to HTC One M7, M8 within three months

HTC logoIf you own HTC’s previous generation One (M7) or the current generation One (M8), you can start setting your timer in anticipation of the sweet, yummy goodness of Android 5.0 Lollipop. The Taiwanese OEM posted a tweet this week announcing that the Lollipop update will arrive for both smartphones within the next 90 days.

We have the Android Lollipop code. We'll be updating the HTC One (M8) & (M7) within 90 days from today. #HTCAdvantage

Samsung already has plans to update its Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4, but there has been no indication if the nearly dozen other Android smartphones that the company has announced over the past year will receive Lollipop. Likewise, Sony has reformed its ways and plans to make Lollipop available to all of its 2014-model Xperia Z smartphones and tablets.

HTC One M8

With OEMs already showing an early interest in Lollipop, we hope that the operating system catches on quicker than its predecessor, Android 4.4.x KitKat. Over a year after KitKat was announced, it is still only installed on 30.2 percent Android devices (as of November 3).
