HTC was involved in a minor kerfuffle yesterday, when HTC VP, Product Management Mo Versi took to Twitter to advise that the HTC One M7 wouldn’t receive an update to Android 5.1. It seems that there was enough ‘feedback’ on this statement to make HTC take a second look, with Mo apparently reversing this decision.
The semi-announcement also came via Twitter with Mo saying:
I heard you all on M7 5.1 for Carrier versions. Many of the fixes are already in our current SW, but understand your concerns. Stay tuned.

It’s not an outright confirmation and yesterday he was quoted as saying the M7 had been supported software wise for two years. We’ll soon see what happens. As Mo says in his Tweet: Stay Tuned.
