GPE HTC One M8 getting Android 5.1 update

HTC One M8 GPE

The GPE version of the HTC One M8 smartphone is now receiving the Android 5.1 update with the the One M7 GPE expected to get it over the coming days as well. This comes after the update was sent out to the GPE LG G Pad 8.3 not too long ago, so it seems like Google is releasing the update to all GPE devices simultaneously.

The OTA will arrive over the coming days, so you might not see it right away. We can also expect the GPE Sony Z Ultra to get the update over the coming weeks, thus concluding the Android 5.1 update rollout for all GPE devices.

Android 5.1 doesn’t introduce a lot of changes compared to Android 5.0, not in terms of the UI at least. There are some under the hood tweaks in abundance of course, and a small visual change which lets you control the system volume even while adjusting the media volume on your device.

HTC hasn’t specified when the GPE One M7 will get the update, but it shouldn’t take long now given that other GPE devices.
