HTC One M7

HTC’s Vice President of Product Management, Mo Versi, has confirmed via Twitter that Android 5.1 is coming only to the Google Play edition of the One M7.

The company promised two years of update support, and it has completed that fufillment already. Nonetheless, Android 5.1 is a much needed update over 5.0 since it fixes so many problems with that version of the OS. As AndroidAuthority‘s Andrew Grush speculates, HTC may be thinking that most users of the One M7 will or already have upgraded to another smartphone, which is why another update is not needed.

  1. You need to look at his more recent posts in which he acknowldeges user outpouring of concern about it and asks folks to stay tuned (implying there is still a chance of getting 5.1 on the M7).

    • That doesn’t say anything of the like about getting 5.1. In fact, it says the opposite – he reiterates that 5.1 actually offers nothing extra. The ‘stay tuned’ implies an official statement will soon clarify HTC’s position on no 5.1.
