This isn’t an official announcement from HTC, at least, not yet, but Vice President for Product Management Mo Versi replied to an inquiry on Twitter when the HTC M8 GPE will receive the update to Marshmallow. He was quick to reply that the smartphone model will include the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS update sometime this month.
Versi tweeted: “M8 GPE will include Marshmallow OS update. Our target is this month. Will advise once we are close to release.”
This means just before the month of October draws to a close, HTC will be rolling out the fluffy Android Marshmallow OS update not just for the HTC One M8 Google Play edition but also for several HTC Android smartphones. If you may recall, the Android Lollipop for the M8 was released only last April for the AT&T variant and for Verizon a month earlier–a few months after the official Lollipop for the One M8 GPE was made available.
We already knew that the HTC One M8 will receive the Android 6.0 update as a list of HTC devices getting the flufiness was leaked. Aside from HTC One M8, more devices will receive the latest Android platform version including the HTC M8 EYE, HTC One E8, HTC Desire 816, HTC One M9, HTC One M9+, HTC One ME, HTC One E9, HTC One E9+, and HTC Butterfly 2 and 3. However, no time frame has been given yet but we’re hoping roll out will be done before 2016.
