We’ve already seen the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop roll out to Sprint and Google Play Edition variants of the HTC One M7, but if you’re the lucky owner of an Unlocked or Developer Edition M7, you should be getting the update as we speak. HTC’s Mo Versi took to Twitter to announce that the two variants would see the update today.
HTC One (M7) Unlocked and Dev owners! Enjoy the Lollipop update! OTA has been released. #HTCAdvantage— Mo (@moversi) February 5, 2015
Less than a week ago, HTC announced that they wouldn’t hit their promised 90-day goal to bring Lollipop to carrier variants of the M8 and M7. This disappointed quite a few users, though HTC did have a valid reason for the delay. We don’t have any information as to when other carrier variants will see the update, but we’d imagine it should roll out sometime soon.
The HTC One M7 is almost two years old, though many would still consider it a great Android device. If you’d like to pick one up for yourself, you can grab one off-contract for as low as $149.99.
Much to everyone’s surprise, Lollipop hasn’t actually rolled out on too many devices quite yet. In the latest Android distribution numbers, Lollipop is only on 1.6% of Android devices so far. So, if you’re the lucky owner of an Unlocked or Dev. Edition M7, consider yourself lucky!
