Rumors have been picking up for a new release of Android outside of the Android One program and now some of Google’s hardware partners are talking about it. HTC’s Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi says that a new version is coming next month.
@JensEsbjerg It'll be tied to Google's next MR, which is in March. Thanks.

By MR, Versi is calling the release a “maintenance release.” But while he is talking about the next Android release, the Google Play Edition HTC One M7 was only updated to Android 5.0.1, not 5.0.2. There’s a likelihood that it could be a 5.0.3 release, but with Android 5.1 already on certain devices, it’s more likely we will see the latter.
