HTC will miss its 90-day Android Lollipop update goal for some One (M8) and (M7) variants
HTC today revealed that "some carrier versions" of its One (M8) and One (M7) smartphones won't meet the 90-day goal that the company had previously set for the roll-out of Android 5.0 Lollipop updates. The reason for this is that, as you may know, Lollipop included (and still includes) some bugs, which Google's been trying to fix with smaller updates. HTC doesn't want to compromise usability for the sake of perfect timing, that's why it decided to delay the update.
HTC reassures users that it's working hard with carriers and Google to deliver the update to all One (M8) and One (M7) devices as soon as possible - it just won't happen before February 1 (this was the deadline date of the 90-day goal).
Of course, owners of an unlocked, Google Play, or Developer Edition HTC One (M8) already received the Lollipop update - but that's not surprising, since non-carrier handsets almost always get the newest updates first.
