HTC to miss Android Lollipop update for flagship devices
This weekend was supposed to be the deadline for HTC to update the HTC One (M8) and HTC One (M7) with Android Lollipop. However, Mo Versi with HTC has issued a statement via the HTC web site to let owners of carrier versions of those devices know the update is not going to happen. Versi indicates HTC decided to opt for ensuring the “rollout is right” even if it means missing the target date of 90 days after Google released the code.
In the statement, Versi indicates part of the problem has been on Google’s end as they work to “address several issues with this release” referring to Lollipop. HTC points out that the Google Play, Unlocked, and Developer Edition of the HTC One (M8) have received the Lollipop update already. However, other versions such as those sold by the carriers are still not ready. Versi says that if the update does not “result in an even better experience with your device” it would defeat the purpose of the update.
HTC has not issued a revised timeline for the update to be available for the affected versions. They invite owners of the impacted devices to continue to watch their Software Updates page and their @HTCUSA Twitter account for updates.
