Sprint HTC One M8, LG G3 Android 5.0 Lollipop update reportedly imminent
Sprint could release the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its HTC One M8 and LG G3 starting next week, according to a leaked schedule.
Android 5.0 Lollipop made its official debut back in October, with the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 as its launch vehicles. The latest Android version has been gradually making its way to more devices ever since, but it has reached only 1.6 percent of Android devices so far. This means it still has a long way to go to hit a more significant number of Android users, but OEMs are nonetheless trying to update their devices as soon as they can.
Motorola was the promptest OEM in delivering the update to its devices, but HTC has also made significant efforts in this regards. The company may have missed its 90-day deadline for pushing out Lollipop, but it has nonetheless started rolling out the update. The GPE and unlocked models of the HTC One M8 already got the update, and Lollipop is also rolling out to carrier versions of the smartphone in Europe and Canada. It is only a matter of time before carrier versions of the HTC One M8 in the U.S. get the same treatment, and Sprint may deliver the treat as soon as next week.
Sprint has already started rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop to its HTC One M7 and Samsung Galaxy S5 on Thursday, Feb. 5, and the latest information now claims that at least two more devices are scheduled to get it starting next week. More specifically, Android Central has obtained an alleged update schedule that shows the Sprint HTC One M8 and One M8 Harman Kardon Special Edition is all set to receive Lollipop on Friday, Feb. 13, while the LG G3 will apparently follow on Monday, Feb. 16.
While this is not official news, the update schedule sounds more than plausible, especially considering that the One M7 and Samsung Galaxy S5 have already started receiving the update on Sprint.
Other carriers should follow suit soon, delivering Android 5.0 Lollipop to their versions of devices. Verizon Wireless has also started rolling out the update to its Samsung Galaxy S5, and more devices should get it soon. While Sprint and Verizon are pushing Lollipop to their Galaxy S5, however, AT&T is just releasing Android 4.4.4 to its version of the handset.
