HTC’s Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi took to Twitter last night to announce that Android 5.0 Lollipop would begin rolling out to the HTC Desire Eye on AT&T starting today. For clarification, the update will begin rolling out today, June 30th, which was still “tomorrow” when Versi posted the tweet last night.
Great news for HTC Desire Eye AT&T owners! We’ve just received technical approval for Lollipop update! OTA to start tomorrow!

In the conversation following the tweet, HTC clarified that this is an update to Android 5.0, not 5.1. That probably won’t be a huge deal to most users with this device, though it would still be nice if the Eye was running the most recent version of Android.
If you need a refresher, HTC’s Desire Eye is actually a pretty nice smartphone. Featuring a 5.2-inch Full HD display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor and a powerful Adreno 330 GPU, the Desire Eye offers users a great overall Android experience without breaking the bank. The device is known for its 13MP rear and front-facing cameras, which actually perform quite well. For a closer look at just what this handset can do, check out the videos below for more information.
