HTC has had a relatively decent track record with getting software updates to their devices, and their HTC Advantage program has helped with ensuring that its most recent devices continue to get updates for at least two years. HTC owners will no doubt be nervously awaiting news of upcoming updates given the turmoil that has been constantly going on at HTC, but thankfully a leak of the HTC devices to get Android Marshmallow has come out today, hopefully putting some of those fears to bed. The leak was made public courtesy of HTC leaker @LlabTooFeR, and gives a list of 15 devices that could get the latest update, including:

  • 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

Keen eyed readers will notice that there is one notable omission from this list – the HTC One M7. Although it received an update to Android Lollipop, it’s well over two years from the One M7’s release date and we aren’t surprised by this at all. Note that @LlabTooFeR points out that the list is still tentative and that HTC could still cut down the list further so unless you’re rocking a HTC One M8 or HTC One M9, you shouldn’t get too comfortable.

What do you think about the list of HTC devices to get Android Marshmallow? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    When HTC announced 5 for the m7 they stated it wouldn’t get further updates. That’s been known for a while now and I’ve come to grips with it. My only issue was no 5.1 , which was purely bug fixes. Still, I got a full 2 years of update… That’s better than most.
