Android 6.0 Marshmallow (Android M) is among the key notable features that arrived with the HTC’s new Desire-series of smartphones unleashed at the MWC 2016.
With various key smartphone manufacturers promising and others actually releasing the Android Marshmallow update to users, concern has been raised about the update status of HTC smartphones. HTC One M9 and HTC One M8 are key flagships from the Taiwanese manufacturer that were lined up for the Android M during the first quarter of 2016. HTC, however, has promised that the update will as well roll out to other select phones under its label.
The Vice President of Product Management at HTC, Mo Versi last week announced that HTC One M9 users will soon start receiving the Android 6.0 update on their devices. The said update has started rolling out to subscribers on T-Mobile as well as Verizon networks. Other reports, however, indicate that HTC One M9 owners on AT&T will get the latest Android update at a much later date due to the carrier’s involvement in technical issues regarding installation of the Marshmallow update.
Android M for HTC users in Canada
Canada users of the unlocked version of the HTC A9 will also receive Android 6.0 update on their devices. This is according to a revelation made on Twitter by Leon Rosenzwaig, who is a product manager at HTC. Further reports also confirm that Canadian carriers such as Wind Mobile, Rogers, Sasktel and Videotron have also started issuing the Marshmallow update to the One M9 users.
To other users of the One M9 around the world, the exact official date has not been confirmed for the roll out but sources have disclosed that it is ‘very soon’. For TELUS subscribers having the HTC One M8 and M9 handsets, the Android M update was made available and rolled out to them.
