Android Lollipop update coming to HTC flagships in 90 days
Android Lollipop is no doubt the most talked about mobile operating system at the moment. Google has launched Android 5.0 alongside the Motorola Nexus 6 and HTC Nexus 9. After Android Lollipop was launched, various companies, including Samsung, Motorola and HTC started talking about release dates of the Android Lollipop update to their flagships and various smartphones and tablets. The HTC One M8 and One M7 were said to be among the first to receive the Android Lollipop update. Now, we have a more clear understanding of when the update will hit HTC flagships.
Google and HTC said that the One M7 and One M8 would be receiving the Android Lollipop update 90 days after the official Android Lollipop system build would be released. HTC has announced yesterday, that they are now in possession of the Android Lollipop build and are beginning to build the OS for their flagships. That means that proud HTC One M7 or One M8 owners should be getting the Android Lollipop update OTA in 98 days from this very moment.
Sense 7 from HTC has already been leaked online the past week. The new UI from the company focuses a lot on keeping the Material Design elements of Android Lollipop. The screenshots we have seen so far show a sleek skin that doesn’t stray too far from the stock Android Lollipop we’ve seen on the Nexus devices. Speaking of which, the Nexus devices, as well as Google Play Edition devices should be receiving the Android Lollipop update later this month, as per most rumors and reports. Android Lollipop has been called, truthfully, Google’s best mobile operating system as of yet. There are tech enthusiasts out there that call it the best mobile operating system on the world. I would say that whether Android Lollipop is the best or not depends on preference. In any case, we are glad to hear that companies are rushing to release the Android Lollipop update to their customers.
