T-Mobile to update the HTC One (M8) on Feb 9; Sprint updates the HTC One (M7) first

T-Mobile to update the HTC One (M8) on Feb 9; Sprint updates the HTC One (M7) first to Android 5.0.2
HTC VP of product management Mo Versi is at it again. A tweet he sent out on Friday evening reveals that T-Mobile owners with the HTC One (M8) will start receiving the Android 5.0 update on Monday. Since the update is being sent out in waves, many of you will not receive it immediately. Don't be depressed or threaten to jump. The update will arrive.

Meanwhile, the Lollipop update happens to be rolling out to Sprint customers with the HTC One (M7). Last Thursday, we showed you a leaked memo that showed Sprint customers with the HTC One (M7) receiving the update starting that very day. Surprisingly, the carrier's HTC One (M8) won't receive the latest Android build until February 13th. And that includes the Harman Kardon edition of the phone.

One of our loyal readers just happened to turn on his Sprint branded HTC One (M7) on Saturday and found the Android 5.0.2 update on his phone. You can check out the images he sent us by clicking on the slideshow below. Remember that when you do receive the notification that your phone has received Android 5.0, make sure that you're using a Wi-Fi network while downloading and installing it. At the same time, your battery should be at least 50% charged.


Thanks for the tip, Nevo617!
