The HTC One M7 was the company’s flagship smartphone about two years ago and there are still many people out there that are using this handset. Support for major Android updates is usually cut after a device is 24 months old but the HTC One M7 will be getting Lollipop, even if this is the last major Android update for this device. Today the Verizon HTC One M7 Lollipop release date has finally been confirmed.
Verizon has taken quite a lot of time to bring this update for the HTC One M7. Sprint released Lollipop for the same handset back in February while AT&T and T-Mobile followed up in March.
That will cease to matter to Big Red customers once it starts rolling out the HTC One M7 Lollipop update. The confirmation comes straight from HTC’s VP of Product Management Mo Versi, who tweeted that the update is going to be released over-the-air tomorrow, May 14th.
Verizon has also updated the support document for the HTC One M7 to reflect that it’s getting the Lollipop update in the very near future.
Aside from everything that’s included in a Lollipop update, HTC One M7 users on Verizon also get HTC Eye experience, enhanced Visual Voice Mail features, 3-way calling feature, UI design changes and a file manager.
