One (M8) with Lollipop spotted in Bluetooth docs, as HTC promises speedy updates
If a filing in the Bluetooth SIG database is any indication, HTC is already hard at work testing and adapting Lollipop to the One (M8).
As spotted by G4Games, the filing is for a device with the code number 0P6BXXX, which in the past has been associated with HTC’s flagship. The document, which clearly mentions Android 5.0, was filed just before the official launch of Lollipop yesterday, and made public today.
To be clear, this listing doesn’t necessarily mean that the big Lollipop update to the HTC One (M8) is imminent. It’s just an encouraging sign that HTC is going to keep its promise, at a time when speedy updates are a must-have for many Android users. The fact that HTC had early access to Android 5.0 thanks to its collaboration to Google for the Nexus 9 is another positive sign that HTC users won’t be left far behind their Nexus-toting brethren.
After the launch of Lollipop yesterday, HTC confirmed on Twitter that it would bring Lollipop within 90 days to its 2013 and 2014 lineup. This includes the M8 and M7 hero devices, but also smaller players like the 2013 One Mini, which was specifically confirmed by HTC.
Besides HTC and OnePlus, Motorola also laid out its plans for the Lollipop jump, and we expect other OEMs to do the same over the next days and weeks.
