HTC to skip update to Android 5.0.2

HTC logoA tweet sent out by ROM developer @LlabTooFeR indicates that outside of the HTC One M9, which comes with Android 5.0.2 and Sense 7.0 out of the box, that combination will not be found on any other HTC handset. In other words, the manufacturer is skipping Android 5.0.2 altogether and instead will update certain models with Android 5.1 and Sense 7.0.

According to a second tweet, the HTC One (M8) will receive Sense 7.0 as will the HTC One M8s, the HTC Desire EYE, the HTC Butterfly 2 and some other devices. The HTC One (M7) is not supposed to receive Android 5.1 (except for the Google Play edition) since the manufacturer's two-year update guarantee has expired for this model. A tweet from HTC VP of Product Management Mo Versi left some hope for One (M7) owners, although nothing concrete has been said.
