HTC One M8 receives Android 5.0 Lollipop, the unlocked and the developer edition model, for now.
Turns out, this is a week of Android 5.0 upgrade for most 2014 flagship phones as Samsung continues to expand its Lollipop rollout to Galaxy S5 users, and HTC has also confirmed through the voice of its VP that, as of this week, the HTC One M8 receives Android 5.0 Lollipop update too.
The upgrade to Lollipop installs firmware build 4.16.1540.8 on to the HTC One M8. The update file is roughly 590MB in size and brings the so cool Material Design visual effects and features, Recent Apps section supporting multiple pages now, more Search functionality within the Settings menu, lots of bug fixes and improvements to the Android OS.
This software update is available to HTC One M8 unlocked and developer model, while the rest of the users that own an M8 bound to a local carrier, will have to wait until further notice. Enjoy!
