Lately, we’ve been seeing OEMs like Samsung make a big push to update their flagships devices to Android 5.1 — the latest version of Lollipop as it currently exists. Although we’ve yet to see the update from HTC, their recent track record leaves us optimistic.
If you’ve been curious to take a look at what HTC has been working on, Android developer and ROM modder LlabtooFeR is giving us a sneak peek inside an early Android 5.1 software build for the One M9 (2.7.401.1) and a few of the new changes therein.
We’re not sure where they got the idea from, but it looks like HTC will be giving users the ability to tweak the color temperature of their phone’s display. It’s something you’d typically only find on a TV or monitor, but a nice power user tweak that we think many users will appreciate. Also making its way to the One M9 as a part of Android 5.1 is multi-user support which you can find in the screenshots above. Smaller tweaks include new UI animations and improved sound controls that allow the user to enable Do Not Disturb mode but still allow alarms through.
Unless you have a carrier branded HTC One M9 in the US, we don’t think you’ll have to wait much longer before the update starts rolling out. In the meantime, you can either wait for the update to hit your HTC One M9 in the coming weeks/months or root your phone and flash LlabtooFeR’s latest ROM right now from the link down below.
