HTC’s 2014 flagship, the One M8 is currently receiving a very long awaited Android 6.0 update beating the 2015 One M9 to the punch.
Users on both the Optus and Vodafone network are reporting that they are seeing the update, though Telstra customers have yet to report in. The Android 6.0 update brings the update to HTC Sense 7.0 UI for One M8 owners, as well as all the other Marshmallowy goodness like the refined Material Design, battery saving Doze feature, individual App Permissions and of course one of the headline features for Android Marshmallow: Google Now On Tap.
Vodafone and Optus both list the OTA for the One M8 update as either rolling out or completed on their respective software update blogs, while Telstra expects to deploy the update on the 15th of January.
There’s no update on the One M9 on any of the sites, though Vice President of Product Management with HTC, Mo Versi did tweet on the 23rd of December that the Marshmallow update for the M9 was rolling out to unlocked versions of the handsets – but given his US focus that could be a regional thing.
