HTC’s Lollipop replace will not attain each One telephone on time
HTC hasn’t all the time had success upgrading One customers to the newest model of Android inside its promised ninety-day window, and historical past is sadly repeating itself with Android 5.zero Lollipop on the best way. The telephone maker is now warning that “some service variations” of the One M8 and M7 will not get Lollipop by the anticipated February 1st deadline. Reportedly, Google’s rush to repair Lollipop (which emerged, let’s assume, lower than polished) gave HTC little time to each end its personal replace and put it by way of the standard supplier testing routine.
You won’t see the replace all that quickly, both. Within the US, it nonetheless hasn’t reached the certification stage with the large 4 carriers (AT&T, Dash, T-Cellular and Verizon). At the least some UK customers report seeing the brand new software program, however there isn’t any useful chart to element progress. As you may guess, the one surefire strategy to get Lollipop proper now’s to personal a One M8 developer version, Google Play Version or unlocked mannequin — in any other case, you may need to make-do with final yr’s software program for some time longer.
