Android version 6.0 (also known as Android M or Marshmallow) started its rollout back in November of last year.  Very few Android device received the upgrade of the Android operating system before 2015 came to a close, but now it is looking like a lot of Android device manufacturers, such as Samsung, LG, Motorola, and even Sony are starting to receive it.  When it comes to HTC, it looks like a lot of its flagship phones are starting to get it, but what about their other devices.  This is the latest news for Android M Version 6.0 Marshmallow Release Date for HTC One M9, the One M8, and the Desire series. 

So, what is happening on the HTC front?  Well, the flagship phones for the HTC including the One M9 and the One M8 have been pretty much updated, according to Tech Radar.  It might not be available on all carriers, such as US Cellular, T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, or Verizon as yet, so users of the M9 and M8 are encouraged to check their "Settings" on "System Update" to see if the over the air (OTA) upgrade is available on their device with their personal carrier. 

So, now that the flagships are taken care of, what about HTC's other phones like the HTC Butterfly 3, HTC Desire 816, HTC Desire 820, HTC Desire 826, HTC One M9+, HTC One E8, HTC One M8 EYE, HTC One ME and HTC One E9?  There is a recent report from Android Pit that the HTC One E8 and M8 EYE will have Marshmallow rollouts as of mid-March, but they only are happening in China, for now.  Europe is most likely on the way. 

In fact, a most recent report from the International Business Times shows that HTC Desire 816 Dual-Sim users are starting to receive the Android Marshmallow upgrade as well.  So far, this update is only happening in Saudi Arabia, but some users in India are also reporting the upgrade as well.  In fact, a report from Android Authority shows that HTC is already rolling out Android 6.0 on Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon in the United States. 

There are also reports that HTC has seeded the latest firmware of Android Marshmallow to the One M9, One M8 Dual SIM and One A9.  There doesn't seem to be any word on the release date for the Butterfly 3, Desire 826, or Desire 820. 

Now, the reason for HTC to get the Marshmallow on the fast track is due to the imminent launch of the newest flagship.  This will not be the HTC One M10, but simply the HTC M10, and it will have Android 6.0 right out of the box.  Expect the announcement of the HTC 10 soon.
