When Google said Android 6.0 was ready to roll out to Nexus phones, HTC revealed a list of phones that it planned to update to Marshmallow. Since then, we’ve seen the unlocked One M9 get its update, but that’s about it. As a result, some HTC owners are probably getting antsy and wondering when their update will come. A new leak claims to shed some light on that matter.
Well-known HTC leaker LlabTooFeR has posted a chart that allegedly shows HTC’s current Android 6.0 update plans for its high-end and mid-range phones. For example, the One A9 is reportedly expected to get Android 6.0.1 in early Q1 2016, and while the One M9 may get Android 6.0 in late December 2015 and then Android 6.0.1 in Q1 2016.
It’s worth pointing out that HTC has already confirmed that both the One A9’s Android 6.0.1 update and One M9’s Marshmallow update are both slated for December rollouts.
Moving on to other devices, the One M8 will get Android 6.0, but its Android 6.0.1 update is currently in “Evaluation.” That means that HTC is still deciding whether or not that update will be offered. Considering the One M8 was a flagship phone and it’s already going to get 6.0, I won’t be surprised if it gets 6.0.1, too. Meanwhile, the Desire 826, 820, and 626 are currently expected to get Android 6.0 in Q2 2016.
As with any leak, the details contained in this graph are unofficial and subject to change. Many HTC users are probably curious about when they’ll get a taste of Google’s Marshmallow, though, and so this leak gives those folk some possible timeframes to look forward to.
