If you’re like most Verizon or T-Mobile users with an HTC One M9, then you’ve been sitting alone in your darkened apartment, sighing heavily and staring out a window trickled over with rivulets of rainwater for at least the past month and a half solid. Yes, it was all the way back in December when Marshmallow began rolling out for unlocked variants of your device, but here you’ve been stuck with Lollipop well into the new year. Fear not! Your time of banishment is coming to an end, because HTC has announced that Marshmallow is coming to your One M9 starting next Tuesday!
That’s right. Mo Versi, product manager at HTC, revealed via tweet that technical approval has been received for T-Mobile devices, and that the rollout would begin next week. Shortly thereafter, Versi confirmed that Verizon variants of the device too were slated for Marshmallowy rewards on the same day, February 16, 2016. These two carriers will be tied for second-place with the Marshmallow rollout on this device, as Sprint customers have been quietly gloating for the past week or two.
Happy Friday! Good news for T-Mobile HTC One (M9) owners! We've received technical approval on Marshmallow, with the OTA to start on 2/16.
