An interesting and important bit of information has been hidden away in the depths of Twitter’s conversations – Android M will be heading to the HTC One M8.

Responding to a question on Twitter a couple of weeks ago now, HTC’s Mo Versi confirmed that the One M8 will be receiving an official update to Android M at some point in the future. A time frame was not specified, so it doesn’t look like HTC is planning on promising a 90 day release policy this time around.

Back at the end of May, HTC’s Jeff Gordon announced that Android M would be coming to the One M9 and M9+. Details regarding other handsets are expected to continue to trickle out, and we’d be surprised if we don’t hear something about some of HTC’s recent Desire handset soon as well.

Along with HTC, Sony is the only other OEM to have openly begun talking about Android M updates. The company recently released a series of Android M Developer preview builds for its wide range of Xperia devices, suggesting that Sony is planning on bringing the update to a number of its handsets too.
