Original HTC One Won't Get Android 5.1 Or Future Versions

Now that Google has made Android 5.1 Lollipop official (and it's even started rolling out to some, but not all Nexus devices), you may be wondering when your particular smartphone will acquire it.

Yet if you own an original HTC One (M7), we have some poor news. This handset will apparently not be receiving any more major Android updates from this point forward. Not even Android 5.1.

This information comes from Mo Versi, HTC's VP of Product Management, so it's as official as can be. The HTC One did acquire updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop, so the recent UI is in there already. But the many bug fixes and subtle improvements brought about by Android 5.1 won't ever officially be available for this smartphone, unfortunately.

All of the above applies to the widely available version of the One which comes with HTC's own Sense UI on top. But the Google Play Edition of the device will in fact receive the newest Lollipop build, with a rollout supposed to commence in early April.
