So far, a lot of manufacturers have announced to roll out Android L v5.0 update for their devices and at the moment, the only tow devices to come with the same verson of Android OS are the Nexus 6 smartphone and the Nexus 9 tablet.
One of the smartphone makers that announced to release the Android 5.0 update for its devices is HTC. The company then announced saying that the HTC One M8 and the HTC One M7 would get the Android L update within the 90 days of receiving the software. Moreover, last week, leaked screenshots of the device from HTC also showed the Android 5.0 update with a layer of Sense 7 UI over it.<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" lang="en"><p>1, Android 5.0 update for M8 will be released with Sense 6. 2, They haven't started porting Sense 7 software to M8 yet.</p>— @upleaks (@upleaks) <a href="https://twitter.com/upleaks/status/527305221144203264">October 29, 2014</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
What is pretty opposed to the previous leak is that a recent leak coming from @upleaks has stated that the HTC One (M7) update will not come with the Sense 7 UI and instead come with the current Sense 6 UI.
It is said that the reason behind the delay is because HTC has not started to port Sense 7 to the HTC One M8 currently. It is not sure exactly whether the company will roll out the Android 5.0 update with Sense 6 UI or Sense 7 UI.
The HTC One (M7) and (M8) remain the first in line for the update. Google Play Edition versions of the handsets will receive an update in late November-December, as expected, and Sense based versions will see an update in January-February, as per a recent report. January 2015 should be the apt month tp be precise.
