HTC One (M7) owners might be able to rejoice: the Android 5.0 Lollipop update may not be the last major update for the original One. After recently stating that the One (M7) would not receive Android 5.1, HTC VP of Product Management, Mo Versi, tweeted to say that HTC was revisiting the idea for carrier versions of the HTC One (M7). While this is far from a promised update, it's better than being left out to dry. Find out all of the latest HTC One (M7) Android update news below.
HTC One (M7) Android 5.1 update
Mo Versi, HTC's VP of Product Management tweeted in mid-March to say that the HTC One (M7) would not be making the update to Android 5.1 Lollipop. Only the One (M7) Google Play edition would make the jump.
@kennymaclean Only the GPE version of M7 will receive 5.1. Our target is early April. Thanks.— Mo Versi (@moversi) March 18, 2015
Not surprisingly, this had repercussions and a show of support from loyal M7 fans that has now seemingly caused HTC to revisit the idea of updating carrier-branded One M7 handsets to Android 5.1 after all, with Versi posting the following tweet:
I heard you all on M7 5.1 for Carrier versions. Many of the fixes are already in our current SW, but understand your concerns. Stay tuned.— Mo Versi (@moversi) March 20, 2015
