Owners of the HTC One M8 and One M9 have a lot to look forward to next week according to Mo Versi, the company’s Vice President of Product Management. In a series of Tweets over the weekend, he announced that the One M9 running on Rogers, Sacktel, Videotron and Wind in Canada will see the Android Marshmallow update hit their devices this week.
The news is certainly welcome and is another example of how HTC is really pushing to get the latest version of Android out to devices quickly. We all know that the unlocked One A9 receives updates within 15 days of their release from Google. The company however committed to having updates out for the One M8 and One M9 in the first quarter of 2016. Looks like they will reach that goal in the first month of the quarter.
There is some good news for those of you based in the US as well on updates.
