At the beginning of December, HTC announced two new mid-range smartphones, the HTC Desire 620 and the HTC Desire 620G. Although the phones are very similar, there are a few hardware specs that differ, notably the processors used in each and the lack of 4G LTE support for the Desire 620G. When the devices were unveiled, HTC did not share any information regarding market availability outside of Taiwan. New information from HTC indicates the device will be sold in the U.K. starting in early 2015. Along with the U.K., HTC is also making the devices available in India later this month and other Asian markets may see the device this month as well.

HTC rolling out Android 5.0.1 for the GPe One M7 and the One M8 today

HTC-One-M8-Google-Play-edition

HTC was expected to roll out the Android 5.0 update for the GPe One M7 and the One M8 a couple of weeks ago. But unfortunately, the update was delayed for reasons unknown to us at the time. The manufacturer has now started rolling out the update, but it’s not Android 5.0 as many expected. The manufacturer is sending out the Android 5.0.1 update instead, which was only recently made available for the Nexus 7, Nexus 9 and the Nexus 10.

This explains the delay in rolling out the update for the two GPe devices. HTC’s Mo Versi claims that the roll out will officially commence at noon today (12/5), so most users should have it by the end of the day. The standard One M8 and One M7 are expected to receive the Android 5.0 update within a month from now.

Have you seen the update on your GPe One M7 or One M8? Let us know below.
