Not that we were worried that HTC’s flagship smartphones from the past two years would receive Lollipop, but the company has come out to confirm that the HTC One M7 and the HTC One M8 will both be receiving the upgrade within 90 days of the update’s release. Of course, time will vary from region to region and variant to variant, but HTC’s been pretty good about sticking to their timelines over the past couple of years so we shouldn’t be subject to any lengthy delays.
A bit more on the surprising side is that the HTC One M7 Mini is now confirmed to be receiving Lollipop. The smartphone is only one year old, but it’s underpowered compared to its bigger sibling by a similar name. That said, Google said Android 5.0 Lollipop would be optimized for entry-level hardware and the HTC One M7 Mini sure has more than enough to handle the load. We’ll be looking to see if any other devices in HTC’s catalog will be in line to receive the upgrade so stay tuned.
