Lollipop rolling out in Europe to HTC One M7
While the world still waits for the HTC M9 unveiling next week, replete with the is-it-or-isn’t-it debate regarding the design “rehash”, the Taiwanese company at-large hasn’t forgotten its plans on a (somewhat) timely Lollipop roll-out for its older hardware. In this case, we’re talking about 2013’s much-praised flagship, the One (M7).
As announced by HTC’s own Senior Global Online Communications Manager, Jeff Gordon, the Lollipop deployment is hitting Europe immediately. Judging by the comments on his Twitter feed, some users have already received the update, thus it’s only a matter of time before your device gets it, too.

The Lollipop update brings features like the lock-screen card UI element, a carousel-based recent app list, and a modified quick settings menu, along with a host of other touches. It remains to be seen how many more updates the M7 will receive given that it’s quickly approaching a two year launch anniversary, but at the same time it’s also interesting how this phone received Lollipop before any of the “lesser” models released in 2014, such as the HTC Desire Eye.
