Samsung has just started rolling out the much-anticipated Lollipop update to all unlocked variants of the Galaxy Note 3 located in Russia. This upgrade transports the latest build of Android, together with a multitude of bug fixes and stability improvements.
If you’re in Europe and own an HTC One (M8), you might be getting something a little extra special today. HTC has started rolling the Android 5.0 Lollipop update today.
This is most likely only for unlocked (non carrier branded) devices. As one would expect, all carrier devices will have to go through an approval process so those devices probably won’t get the update for at least a month or two. That goes for the U.S. as well.
Did you get the update? Let us know in the comments.
As promised last week by Mo Versi, Vice President of Product Management at HTC, AT&T has now started pushing out the long-awaited Eye Experience update for all its carrier-branded variants of the One (M8) located in the United States. The upgrade brings the latest build of KitKat, in addition to a multitude of new features, bug fixes and stability improvements.
Hit the break for the full changelog.
In just a few days, expect a software update to begin rolling out to the HTC One (M8) for AT&T. Mo Versi, the Vice President of Product Management at HTC, responded to one eager customer on Friday. Versi announced that a software update would land on the device “early next week” and include a slew of items.
Here is what Versi said will be in the update:
- Android 4.4.4 KitKat
- HTC Eye Experience software
- Voice over LTE (VoLTE)
Even though it is not Android 5.0 Lollipop, it is a welcome
For those of you that have been patiently, and impatiently, waiting for the Lollipop update for your second generation Moto G, you’re in luck. Motorola announced today that the US variant of the second gen phone is receiving its update starting today. On top of the US version, both the first gen and second gen models in India are also seeing a roll out of said update. The update is the latest version of Lollipop (5.0.2) and while the India and US variants are specifically mentioned in the tweet, people in other regions are mentioning receiving the update.
The Android 5.0.2 OTA update became available last night for the Nexus 7 2013 WiFi so it was a matter of time until the Nexus 10 link became available. That time is now so if you’re rocking a Nexus 10, you can update it to Android 5.0.2 on your own or you can wait for it to be pushed to your device automatically. The auto method could take up to a couple of weeks, so if you’re anxious, then download the OTA from the link below.
