Android Lollipop 5.0 rolls out for HTC One M8 in Europe

Last updated:

Jeff Gordon, Senior Global Online Communications Manager at HTC, has confirmed on Twitter today that Android Lollipop 5.0 is now rolling out for the HTC One M8 in Europe.

Several users on Twitter and Reddit are confirming the arrival of the OTA update in Europe, as well as the Middle East.

HTC rolled out Lollipop to the developer and unlocked versions of the One M8 earlier this month, but now the rollout is going out to carrier versions. As always, these rollouts go out in waves, and depending on your carrier, it may take a while before the OTA hits your phone. But it doesn’t hurt checking manually from the About Phone section.

The update spruces up the interface with a new lock screen and a new app switcher, but Sense 6.0 remains largely unchanged. The update is heftier than in other regions, weighing in at 780MB and brings the ROM version up to 4.16.401.10.

Versions of the update for other regions were 580MB and 650MB.

You can go to the Settings menu to check if the update is available. Make sure you’re on Wi-Fi though, that’s a rather large download.[signoff predefined=”Enjoy this?” icon=”users”][/signoff]
