Last week was a good week for Android devices as not only was Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 in progress, but a lot of Android smartphone companies managed to receive Android version 6.0 (also known as Android M or Marshmallow) on their flagship phones. HTC was just one of them, and this is the latest news for Android M Version 6.0 Marshmallow Release Date for HTC One M9, M8, and Desire Series for T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, T-Mobile, and Verizon.
The biggest news for HTC happened last week, as HTC was finally able to get Marshmallow on the One M9 on Verizon and T-Mobile, yet not for AT&T due to technical difficulties. As far as the updates to the HTC One M8 are concerned, there have been reports that it will be coming to at least the UK. If it is coming there, then it will no doubt be heading overseas after that.
So that is the news for the two flagship phones from HTC, and it is pretty positive that the Android upgrade is coming soon for them, if it hasn't arrived already. The thing is that the flagships aren't the only devices from HTC that will be receiving the upgrade. There is also these particular smartphones: 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.
So far, there has been little to no news about those HTC phones, with all the focus going to the flagships. However, the Lawyer Herald reported that a Twitter leakster known as @LlabTooFeR said that Android 6.0.1 will be available to the Desire EYE phones, not to be confused with the iPhones. All joking aside, it looks like it will be coming to European phones first. If that is the case, then it won't be long before it makes its way over the sea. Granted, the tipster did warn that Android Marshmallow was coming to the Desire EYE last month, and a lot of the delay has to do with the new Android lining up with the Sense UI.
One thing that is good about HTC is their commitment to bring the latest version of Android to their users. The company has a 90-day target date for their newest devices, so if you have any device that is under 2 years old, it will receive the latest version. There are times where it doesn't make its target date, and it is recommended that every HTC user know Mo Versi on Twitter. Mo is the VP of Product Management on HTC, so he often has the latest news on when the Android upgrade will arrive. So if you have an HTC device, check your "Settings" and "System Update" first, and then check with Mo next.
