HTC is expecting to roll out the Android Marshmallow to some of its smartphones in the US: Desire 816, One M8, Butterfly 3, One M9, Desire 826 and other models connected to various carriers. The One M8 (Google Play Edition) was upgraded to Marshmallow in November 2015, the unlocked versions in the United States have received it in December last year, while Sprint has rolled out this update in January and other carriers such as T-Mobile and Verizon are doing the same with this handset.
The T-Mobile and Verizon HTC One M8 devices have been approved to get the Android M updates, as HTC’s Mo Versi has announced this on his Twitter account. The devices will start receiving this update tomorrow, over the air, which means that the upgrade process will take place in phases. For now, AT&T is the only US carrier that hasn’t got the approval to release the Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the One M8. This phone was released exactly two years ago, and its specs include: a 5-inch Full HD screen, a full metal body that weights 160 grams, a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor backed by 2GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage expandable up to 128GB, a 5MP front camera and a 4Mp Ultrapixel rear camera and a 2600mAh non-removable battery.
The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update was rolled out to Verizon’s HTC One M9 and T-Mobile is preparing to release it to its subscribers. The rest of approved devices that will run on the latest firmware are: HTC One E9, HTC One ME, HTC One M8 EYE, HTC One E8, HTC Desire 826, HTC Desire 820, HTC Desire 816 and HTC Butterfly 3 and some reports claim that the Desire EYE will be upgraded directly to 6.0.1 Marshmallow, at first in Europe, the in the rest of the world.
