The Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update is finally rolling out for people who own the HTC One M9 Developer Edition, it’s a pretty hefty update which bumps up the core Android OS version as well as brings some important improvements and enhancements for the device’s overall performance and stability. The wait is finally over for people who own the developer edition of this handset.
Android 5.1.1 for the HTC One M9 Developer Edition comes in at just under 800MB so it’s necessary to download it on a Wi-Fi network, particularly a strong one since the update file is large and is going to take a lot of time to download on a slow internet connection.
The official changelog mentions that this update brings the device up to Android 5.1 and also features improvements for battery life, camera, data and call performance as well as temperature management optimization.
“Temperature management optimization” seems like an effort on HTC’s part to improve the software in order to improve heat management on the device which is powered by the Snapdragon 810, and since it’s an all-metal device, the heat management issues haven’t exactly been easy to cloak.
HTC has started rolling out Android 5.1.1 for the One M9 Developer Edition today, it might take a while before this update become available for all users across the globe.
