HTC One M8 Google Play Edition gets Marshmallow update

casasbahia.com.br


The first HTC smartphone to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow is the One A9, as you may know. But the first HTC handset to be updated to the latest version of Android is in fact the One (M8) Google Play Edition (GPE), the Sense-less version of the Taiwanese company’s flagship for 2014.

Since this is a GPE model, updates are handled by Google and only sent out by the OEM, HTC in this case. That explains why the update’s been so quick to roll out. The download for the One (M8) GPE is around 450MB in size.

Next up we should see Android 6.0 on its way to the One M9 and the Sense-filled One (M8), with rollouts reportedly starting before the end of the year. And then, in 2016, Marshmallow will also make it to ten more HTC devices.

  4. idiots haven’t done the same for the M9, dumbest thing ever as the camera is actually half decent without their software messing it up.

    HTC do themselves no favours at all.

    Stupid.

  5. Unknwon, 07 Nov 2015how do I know if my htc one m8 is GPE?Well, it’s easy; if it features HTC Sense UI, then it’s not GPE.

  6. Unknwon, 07 Nov 2015how do I know if my htc one m8 is GPE?Look at the camera app. If it looks like the camera app found in Nexus devices (perhaps the Nexus 5), then it’s the GPE.

  10. Ali, 16 hours agohow do I know if my htc one m8 is GPE?Does it have Sense? Yes? Then it isn’t a GPE. GPE have stock (Vanilla) Android and no HTC-apps. Apart from the camera-app if I’m not mistaken.

  11. Very well done, HTC.

    Now, Sammy – when do we get this update? My glorious Note 4 is still on 5.0.1…
