We’ve had a little bit of everything in the world of Android this week. Samsung surprised naysayers with a speedy Lollipop update kickoff for the Galaxy S5. Google pushed out a minor update to Nexus devices, bringing the software revision to Android 5.0.1. The two-face YotaPhone 2 finally made its actual debut, and we brought you our impressions of it. Some tantalizing rumors about Samsung’s and HTC’s upcoming flagships surfaced. And Google pushed out interesting updates to Messenger, News, and YouTube.
HTC has begun rolling out Android 5.0.1 Lollipop updates to its Google Play Edition smartphones, the HTC One M8 and One M7.

@upleaks has posted early specifications for HTC’s upcoming flagship smartphone, which is apparently codenamed Hima.
Jack Tong, president of HTC North Asia, has stated that a second generation HTC RE camera will go on sale next year.
HTC One (M9) specs have been leaked. It’s just a rumor, for now, but a 5.5-inch display and no more UltraPixel camera are a good start for HTC’s next flagship phone.
HTC has announced, again, that their original HTC One GPE and newer HTC One (M8) GPE should see the Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA this week. We’ve heard this before, come see what is different this time.
One Reddit user claims to have received a Nexus 9 manufactured last week with substantial hardware changes: better buttons, less light bleed, and no bounce.
