We previously heard that the HTC One M8 Android Lollipop update would be coming around January or February, and now HTC has shared more information on when the update will land, within the next 90 days.
The update will be released first for the Google Play Edition of the HTC One M8, the HTC One M7 will also get the update within the next 90 days.
The news was posted on Twitter by HTC’s Mo Versi, who confirmed that HTC has received the Android Lollipop code from Google, and the company is now working on the update.
We’ve received Android Lollipop code from Google, the clock starts now! HTC One (M8) and (M7) will be updated within 90 days! #HTCAdvantage!

So that would mean that the original time frame that we heard for the release of the HTC One M8 and HTC One M7 is about right, the updates should be release for the handset around February 2015 at the latest.
Hopefully HTC will release the Android Lollipop update for the HTC One M8 and HTC One M7 earlier than February of next year, as soon as we get some details on exactly when the updates will be available, we will let you guys know.
