HTC Software Updates Plan Q1-Q2 2016


It’s been a while since I posted last schedule about HTC software updates. But last weeks I’m getting tons of the questions and I would like to clarify the situation and what will happen in the first half of the 2016.

This picture contains only newest and devices that are sold on the all major markets. Niche devices aren’t represented here as updates for them are highly depend on sold volume…


This table is valid for Dual Sim models as well. But please note the usually Dual Sim devices receiving updates with 1-3 months lag from the Single SIM models. Moreover in some cases Dual Sim devices may skip certain updates. As can be seen, M7 will not get any major updates in the future, however some security patches can be released.  HTC One A9 going to be one of the first non-Google devices to get Android 6.0.1 with updated emojis and security enhancements. There is some unpleasant news for low-end MTK ODM devices like Desire 526G or Desire 310 and some other which are based on KitKat. More likely they won’t get any Android L or Android M updates at all…

To sum everything up almost all high and mid-range devices produced in 2014 and 2015 will be updated to Android 6.0 or 6.0.1 with Sense 7.0. Coming months will be full of the news regarding updates. I want to point that this schedule isn’t final and updates may shift or even be cancelled for certain reasons.
