HTC continues to bring the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to a number of its devices. The company follows a particular timeline, operating on a 90-day promise including promising delivery of updates within two years from the release.


Android 6.0 Marshmallow update has been rolling out to several devices including HTC units. Initially, HTC confirmed the release of the upgrade by the end of 2015 but schedules have been delayed. Nonetheless, several reports about the HTC One M9 receiving the update in Asia popped out. HTC One M9 in the US reportedly started having access around January 18.

HTC UK provided further confirmation via tweet. The company said that the HTC One M8 has been updated while the HTC One M9 is already in the process of receiving the software. However, only those with unlocked HTC One M9 under selected carriers will be eligible for the program.

Other devices confirmed to receive the software include:

  • HTC One M9+
  • HTC One E9+
  • HTC One M8
  • HTC One E9
  • HTC One ME
  • HTC One E8
  • HTC One M8 Eye

On top of the Android updates, HTC has also been busy over the release of another flagship: the HTC One M10. While HTC has yet to provide additional details, information from LlabTooFer (via 9to5google) say that the device will be available in two variants. One will run on Snapdragon 820 while the other will run on a MediaTek processor. The device will also ship with Android 6.0.1 along with HTC Sense 8.0. EVleaks also posted something about the M10 saying that people who loved the A9 will surely love the device.

Like all leaks, things should be taken with a grain of salt until further announcements.
