AT&T's HTC Desire EYE should be updated to Android Lollipop starting today
While the HTC Desire EYE already received its Android Lollipop update outside of the US, the handset's version that AT&T is selling is still running Android KitKat. Fortunately, HTC and AT&T are now ready to update the phone.

According to HTC VP of Product Management Mo Versi, AT&T's HTC Desire EYE should be updated to Android Lollipop starting today, June 30. Mind you, the update brings Android 5.0, not 5.1 to the handset, but it's still going to include various changes and enhancements (since there are plenty of differences between KitKat and Lollipop).

For now, it doesn't look like the update is live, but some AT&T Desire EYE owners should get it over the air before the end of the day.

AT&T is currently selling the HTC Desire EYE for $29.99 on contract, or 358.99 off contract. The EYE is HTC's first smartphone to come with two 13 MP cameras: one on the back, and one on the front, both accompanied by dual LED flashes. That aside, the Desire EYE features a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2400 mAh battery.
