HTC One M8 DSC06661

Only 71 days since Android 5.0 Lollipop hit AOSP, both the unlocked and Developer Edition HTC One M8 are now officially receiving the update. It’s definitely well before HTC’s promised 90-day timing, with the 584.83MB update bringing the HTC One M8 to software version 4.16.1540.8 and Android 5.0.1 with Sense 6.0.

It was only a few hours ago we got a brief sneak peek at the update running on a One M8 and next in line for HTC devices confirmed to receive Lollipop at some point is still the original HTC One (M7), HTC One Mini. HTC also mentioned the HTC One M8 Eye will get Lollipop within 120 days from their original November 3rd announcement, so be on the lookout.

Expect the update to eventually hit carrier branded models in the coming days/weeks/months. At this point we can only guess which US carrier will be first out the gate with the update (or who will be last). Place your bets.

Thanks, vmry2!

P.S. Seems HTC has also added the Sense browser — aka HTC Internet — to their list of apps available on the Google Play Store for easy updating.
