HTC One M8 Developer and Unlocked Edition get Android 5.0 Lollipop!

If you've got the developer or unlocked edition of the HTC One M8, check for a system update. Android 5.0 Lollipop is now available.

The update — software version 4.16.1540.8, if you're interested in such things — weighs in at 584 megabytes. The official changelog reads thusly:

  • Android 5.0 Lollipop update
  • Lock screen and notification: New Lollipop UI style with enhanced privacy features
  • Recent apps: Supporting multiple pages
  • Addition of search function within settings

The update was confirmed by HTC, which said it should start pushing "tonight." Obviously, however, we're seeing it a little sooner than that.

We're loading this update as we type, so stay tuned for what's what. For more, be sure to swing by our HTC One M8 forums!

Thanks, Andre, for the tip!
