Sprint has posted on its support site that its rollout of the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to owners of the HTC One M8 has begun. This is a few days earlier than what a leaked Sprint document sent to Android Central on Thursday indicated, but it is a welcome surprise nonetheless.
The update will bring the Sprint HTC One M8 version number up to 4.20.651.10, which is different than the Android OS number. Besides Lollipop, the change notes state that the update will remove the Lumen toolbar. Sprint released the Lollipop update for the older HTC One M7 earlier this week.
