After watching as Verizon successfully pushed out Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy S5 early this month, HTC One M8 owners may be wondering what the status is on their software update. HTC revealed that because of buggy software, they would be missing their self-imposed 90-day deadline as part of their “HTC Advantage” promise. And although we saw a few carrier variants like the One M8 on T-Mobile receive Lollipop last week, this didn’t bode well for customers on Verizon who’s lengthy approval process typically means longer wait times.
Well, you may not have to wait too much longer. In a response to one user’s inquiry on Twitter, HTC Product Manager Mo Versi revealed that Verizon already has the HTC One M8’s Lollipop update in their labs, and that HTC is expecting the update to be approved in early March. No exact date was given and we’re hoping Verizon doesn’t run into any major bugs before then, but now you don’t have to hit that “Check for software updates” button for a few more weeks.
