An alleged update roadmap has leaked online for HTC devices, revealing when Android 5.0 Lollipop will roll out to various handsets in the company's lineup.

The latest major version of Android has already started rolling out to the HTC One M8, and the HTC One M7 flagship smartphone from 2013 is the next in line to receive the new treat. The One M8 and One M7, however, are not the only HTC smartphones set to get a software upgrade.

HTC has yet to provide specific dates for when the update will reach more devices, but a new leak now offers an alleged roadmap, detailing which other HTC handsets will get Android 5.0 Lollipop and when.

This leaked update roadmap comes from Vietnamese publication HTCViet and reveals that a number of popular HTC smartphones are set to receive Android 5.0 Lollipop next month, while another batch of handsets will get it later on.

If this turns out to be accurate, the HTC One E8, the HTC Desire EYE, the One M8 Eye, and HTC Butterfly 2 should all get the new Android 5.0 Lollipop treat sometime in February.

The HTC One Max , the HTC One M7 dual-SIM, the HTC Desire 816, Desire 820u, the One M8 Mini, and the China-bound versions of the One E8 One M8 Eye are reportedly next in line, set to get the Lollipop treat sometime in March.

Lastly, the report further notes that the HTC Desire 610, Desire 820s, Desire 510, and the original HTC One Mini should receive the over-the-air (OTA) update to Android 5.0 Lollipop in April at the latest.

This is not the first time that an alleged roadmap leaks online claiming to reveal when various HTC devices would get the latest software, but still nothing is confirmed at this point.

As previously mentioned, HTC has yet to provide an official roadmap for when Android 5.0 Lollipop will start rolling out to other devices in its lineup, but should do so soon enough. Nevertheless, this newly-leaked roadmap falls in line with previous information regarding the Lollipop rollout for HTC devices.

Until HTC makes it official, however, it all remains in the rumor state. As always in such cases, it is highly advisable to take all leaks and reports with a hefty grain of salt. We'll make sure to keep you up to date as soon as more information becomes available, so stay tuned.
