HTC finally welcoming Desire 820 owners to Android 5.0 Lollipop

HTC Desire 820

The #HTC #Desire820 smartphone is now getting an update to Android 5.0 #Lollipop, which is slightly surprising given how long the customers have been made to wait. For those unaware, this is a midrange offering from the Taiwanese manufacturer that has been available since November last year.

The Desire 820 has been sold in the U.S. through a handful of carriers as well. The update will breathe a new life into the device as it’s currently running Android 4.4 KitKat, which is a two year old operating system.

In addition to bringing a new lockscreen and a notifications tray, the performance will be significantly boosted as well. This is something that comes expected from a new operating system. The Sense UI will also be polished with this new update, so you’re looking at changes across the board.

We must remind you that the update is currently seeding in a handful of countries across the world and we’re not clear if the U.S. is included in the list. But if you happen to have received the update already, make sure you let us know by dropping a comment below.
