Android 5.0 Lollipop update for HTC One (M8) and M7 to start rolling January 3rd
HTC promised to update its flagships within 90 days of receiving the Android 5.0 Lollipop source code from Google, released November 3rd. That makes the beginning of February the self-imposed deadline for HTC to deliver, but it seems that the flagship One (M8) will do one better even.
On a closed London event HTC has confirmed that it will start rolling out the Lollipop update January 3rd, and several other sources have corroborated the claim, it seems, adding HTC One to the mix, too.
With a brand new, 64-bit Lollipop should come a brand new Material Design-inspired HTC Sense interface, right? Right, said HTC, and rolled up its sleeves. What you are seeing above, are purported screenshots from a test HTC One (M8) running a Lollipop build, with the eventual new HTC Sense interface. All that jazz, together with the improved notification system and other new Lollipop features will be hitting your HTC flagship less than a month from now, if this report holds water.
