Android 5.1 rolling out to the HTCOne M8 GPe and M7 GPe
Approval for both M8 & M7 GPE versions have been granted by Google for 5.1 OS. OTA out shortly!— Mo Versi (@moversi) April 8, 2015
The update weighs in at 244MB and brings handsets from version 5.0.2 to 5.1, but doesn’t add in any major new features. However, Android 5.1 includes a couple of tweaks, such as adjustments to wireless connection setups, system volume controls and notifications, and a small selection of new animations. HD Voice Calling, Dual-SIM support and Device Protection are now included as well. There are also a number of bug fixes and performance tweaks to help resolve issues that some users were experiencing.
If you haven’t received your update notification yet, even after hammering the “check now” button, you may have to wait a little while, as this is most likely a staggered rollout. Be sure to let us know when the update lands for you.
