T-Mobile HTC One M7 getting Android 5.0 a day in advance

HTC One M7

The HTC One M7 on T-Mobile was expected to be receiving the Android 5.0 update tomorrow, i.e. the 10th of March. However, the carrier has jumped the gun and made the update available ahead of its schedule. Some users are reporting the arrival of the update on their devices as of today.

It is said that the update file is 729.59MB in size, which is understandable coming from Android 4.4 KitKat. The update will bring all the goodies of Android 5.0 to the two year old HTC flagship. The update might take some time to reach the entirety of the population, so remain patient if you don’t see it on your smartphone yet.


Below are some of the features listed by HTC:

  • Lock screen and Notification: New Lollipop UI style with enhanced privacy features
  • Recent apps: Supporting multiple pages
  • Addition of search function within settings

Android 5.0 introduces some significant performance upgrades, which should make usability a lot better. Have you received the update on your T-Mobile HTC One M7 yet? Make sure you let us know in the comments below.
