HTC has said it is “on track” to deliver Google’s latest version of Android its One M7 and One M8 handsets, ahead of the platform update's arrival on its handsets next year.
In a tweet following the release of Android Lollipop for the Google Play Editions of those phones, the company said it is sticking with its original plans for the update.
Back in November, HTC said it would release Android Lollipop within 90 days of receiving final code. That means it's on course for an early February release.
“We’re still on track to update carrier versions of HTC One M7 and M8 within 90 days as well. More news on Unlocked and Dev editions soon,” HTC's US division tweeted.
HTC’s swift approach to Android Lollipop is in stark contrast to the issues it has suffered before with updates to Google software.
Last year it took flak for failing to bring Android KitKat to its then year–old One X device, while it has disappointed users in the past by failing to update relatively new handsets with the latest versions of Google’s OS.
Android Lollipop is currently only available on Nexus and Google Play Edition phones and tablets. It has struggled with a series of bugs, which Google is yet to officially acknowledge.
