HTC Desire 820 starts seeing Android 5.0 Lollipop updates across Asia

By Adrian Diaconescu October 27, 2015, 6:00 am

Among the full dozen HTC devices already confirmed to get Marshmallow goodies down the line, a fairly popular mid-end phone was oddly still stuck on Android’s ancient 4.4 KitKat iteration, making us wonder if maybe it would skip both the 5.0 and 5.1 rollouts on its way to 6.0.

But that doesn’t seem to be the case after all, and at long last, the Desire 820 gets with the Lollipop program. Only in India and Taiwan for now, apparently, though the Android 5.0 refreshed notification system, ART support, Project Volta battery life enhancements, and numerous other stability improvements should likely expand to more Asian countries, then Europe and finally North America in the coming months.

POCKETNOW VIDEO OF THE DAY

The juicy new software package reportedly tips the scales at between 900MB and 1.2GB, depending on local bloat, so before giving the download your blessing, make sure you’re on Wi-Fi, have plenty of juice to go around, as well as enough free internal storage space.

No words on whether or not the update contains Sense 7.0, but even if the HTC proprietary UI’s 6.0 version remains standing, its look and feel will no doubt be vastly augmented. Hopefully, bugs aren’t part of the equation, as HTC would probably be wise to follow Sony’s suit now, and start work directly on Marshmallow optimization rather than 5.1 Lollipop maintenance fixes.
