HTC One Will Not Receive Any Further Android Updates

HTC One Will Not Receive Any Further Android Updates
The Android 5.0 Lollipop update rolled out to the 2013 flagship HTC One last month was the last update from the company for the smartphone, according to HTC's Mo Versi.

HTC's VP of Product Management, Mo Versi while replying to a Twitter user confirmed that only the Google Play Edition of the HTC One (M7) will receive the Android 5.1 update. The Twitter user asked whether the HTC One will be receiving the Android 5.1 Lollipop update, which was rolled out earlier this month. Versi also confirmed that the Taiwanese company is pushing for an update by early April.

The news could come as a shock for HTC One (M7) users who received the Android 5.0 Lollipop update early last month, specifically the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update with Sense 6 UI.

The company at MWC 2015 confirmed that the latest Sense 7.0 UI will be rolled out to all of its 2014 handsets later this year. At the time, Sense 7.0 was only available to the HTC One M9.

HTC Sense 7.0 is the latest UI offering by the company, and adapts to user's behaviour. The new UI features 'Morning Bundles' that bring the top news and user's personal agenda of the day when one uses the phone for the first time in the morning. Another is the Restaurant Bundle that shows up on the lock screen around meal times with suggestions on nearby restaurants one may like. These suggestions are powered by data from Foursquare, Yelp, and other sources popular in different markets.

HTC earlier this week announced the much-anticipated 'Uh-Oh' protection plan that will offer a free phone replacement in the case of a cracked screen, water damage, or a carrier switch within the first twelve months from the date of purchase. HTC's 'Uh-Oh' protection plan will include the new flagship, the HTC One M9, alongside its predecessor, the HTC One (M8). It's worth noting that the new protection plan announced by HTC is only for US customers and there is no word on a broader rollout of the service.
