HTC One M9 and M8 should receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow sometime soon
Android 6.0 Marshmallow has already been available on Nexus devices for some time now, and it’s finally starting to make its way to other Android smartphones across the board. Some variants of the LG G4, Moto X Style and 2014 Moto X have already gotten the update, and so has the Google Play Edition HTC One M8.
Soon after Google announced Android 6.0, many OEMs came out to say which of their devices would be updated. This includes HTC, which said that the One M8 and M9 would see Marshmallow before the year’s end. Well, now that it’s December, are you wondering if HTC is on schedule with these updates? According to some leaks and various bits of speculation floating around the web, it’s looking like the Taiwanese company is right on schedule. Taking a look at Mo Versi’s Twitter, he’s recently responded to many folks asking when their phones will be updated. And although there’s no exact date for the rollout, Mr. Versi says that both the unlocked One M9 and M8 will still get the update this year, with carrier variants following close behind.

When will the carrier versions get updated, you ask? Again, we don’t have an exact date, but Mr. Versi did say that Sprint’s One M8 is expected to get updated on January 4th. Additionally, popular HTC leaker LlabTooFeR on Twitter earlier today said that the Marshmallow update will likely roll out to the European One M8 in the next two weeks or so.

Now, it’s pretty difficult to tell when exactly all of these updates will begin rolling out, but at least we have a pretty good idea that HTC is still on schedule. We’ll be sure to let you know if we hear anything more from the company regarding these updates.
