HTC is one of Google’s OEMs, but it seems that the Taiwanese manufacturer needed seven months to roll out the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to its Desire 820, a mid-range device that has been released in November 2014, with Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box.



The HTC Desire 820 is reportedly starting to receive Android 6.0.1 and Sense Version 7.0 UI in some regions of the world, but we don’t know yet which model is being updated or how much the installation file is weighing. But, either way, you should connect to a wireless network before downloading the file, which should be available over the air. However, you can try to manually check for the update in Settings menu, and if it’s available for your device, you can download it immediately.

Most likely, you’ve found out about some of the new features that have been introduced in Android Marshmallow, and they include Now On Tap, which will provide relevant information based on what’s on your screen, Doze mode extends your battery life by better managing power usage, app permissions will allow you to control over what parts of your phone applications can access, and this new update brings 200 new emoji, as well as other improvements.

As for the HTC Desire 820, the phone has a plastic body with a dual tone design, the screen measures 5.5-inch and supports a HD resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels at 267 ppi, being protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and under the hood, it houses a Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 chipset with a quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and quad-core 1.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU backed by Adreno 405 graphics and 2GB of RAM.

There’s only one variant of internal memory with a capacity of 128GB, but it’s expandable up to 128GB and the battery is quite small, of 2600mAh, and it can’t be replaced. The primary camera is 16MP and offers autofocus and LED flash, while the front camera is 8MP.
