Those who own HTC’s One M8 devices in the US have a reason to cheer – the sweetness of Android 6.0 Marshmallow is coming very soon to their handsets.

HTC’s VP of Product Management, Mo Versi, took to Twitter to announce that the unlocked units of the company’s erstwhile flagship phone will begin receiving Marshmallow within 24 hours.

“HTC One (M8) unlocked owners! Great news, all testing has been complete and the update for Marshmallow will be sent out within 24 hours. Thx (Sic)”

Versi also revealed that those who own carrier versions of the One M8 will have to wait a bit longer for Marshmallow as HTC is “working with all of them (carriers) closely” to roll out the update out “as soon as possible.”

It is surprising that HTC’s latest flagship – the One M9 – is still waiting for Android’s latest software, while its predecessor is already getting Marshmallow. We must remind you that HTC had previously mentioned that users of the One M8 and One M9 in the US will be able to upgrade their phones to Android 6.0 before the New Year.
