HTC One M7 Lollipop update allegedly caught on camera
The HTC One M7 Lollipop update — or at least a pre-release or beta version of some sort of it — has been caught on camera. The Taiwanese phone maker has officially committed to delivering the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to both the 2013 and 2014 flagship phones, the HTC One M7, and HTC One M8. The company told users to expect the firmware update around 90 days after Google finishes developing the final build.
We’ve already seen reports and leaks showing Android 5.0 Lollipop in the HTC One M8 (and the most recent reports claim that the update is one or two weeks out), but this time we’re looking at the One M7 running the newer version of the platform.
In the video below you can see Sense 6 (reports claim Sense 7 will arrive on the Hima — maybe the One M9 — and later, on the M8), the new, card-like multitasking screen — with Chrome-like cards showing active apps that can be killed with the help of an “X” button — as well as the notification tray.
If the video — embedded below — is legit, then HTC might deliver on its promise. An exact roll-out date has not yet been made official, but it’s good to know that the company is working on keeping its promise trying to update its flagships to Google’s latest and greatest.
