List of HTC devices slated to receive Marshmallow update leaks

by John_A


To help address a criticism of HTC that surfaced a few years ago regarding lack of Android updates for their devices, HTC implemented their HTC Advantage program. HTC Advantage is the company’s commitment to provide devices with updates to the Android operating system for at least two years after their release. With Android Marshmallow getting ready to be officially released, HTC will once again be tested against this standard they set for themselves. A new leak lists the devices that supposedly will receive an update to Android Marshmallow.

The devices include smartphones that are part of HTC’s One M9 line, One M8 line, Desire line and their Butterfly devices according to Twitter user @LlabTooFeR. The full list of devices slated to get Marshmallow and HTC’s Sense 7 interface includes:

  • HTC Desire EYE
  • HTC Desire 816
  • HTC Desire 820
  • HTC Desire 826
  • HTC One M8
  • HTC One M8s
  • HTC One M8 EYE
  • HTC One E8
  • HTC One M9
  • HTC One M9+
  • HTC One ME
  • HTC One E9
  • HTC E9+
  • HTC Butterfly 2
  • HTC Butterfly 3

After posting this list, @LlabTooFeR quickly noted the list is preliminary and some of the devices listed may not get Marshmallow. In particular, any device which is low on internal storage like the HTC Desire 816 may find themselves getting skipped over.

Although HTC has committed to providing operating system updates, they have still struggled to meet their deadlines for providing them to users. In the case of these devices, no schedule or target dates have been leaked.
