HTC One GPe Lollipop updates entering final stretch this week

After a couple of unexpected delays, the Android 5.0 Lollipop updates for the Google Play edition HTC One M8 and HTC One M7 are hitting the final stretch this coming week. HTC Product VP Mo Versi reveals on Twitter that company's GPe Lollipop updates are "in Google's QA lab" and "their target is to provide TA [Technical Approval] by end of day Monday."

Technical approval is one of the last steps before the update rolls out over the air. So while this isn't a guarantee that devices will begin receiving Lollipop on Monday, it is looking increasingly likely that eager GPe owners won't have too much longer to wait.
