The HTC One M7 has been within the information in recent years way to the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update (belatedly) being rolled out around the globe. It would seem that that is the final best Android update that the M7 will receive although, consistent with HTC’s Vice President of Product Management, Mo Versi.
@kennymaclean Only the GPE model of M7 will receive 5.1. Our objective is early April. Thanks.

As you'll be able to see from the tweets above, the HTC One M7 has reached the top of the road. There is affirmation although that the GPE (Google Play Edition) M7 will receive the Android 5.1 update in April. Mo Versi confirms that the HTC One M7 has won years value of OS updates from the producers perspective.

This determination to go away the HTC One M7 on Android 5.0.2 certainly isn’t right down to hardware constraints, seeing because the GPE version is showed to get Android 5.1. Instead, this can be a determination to primarily based on the truth that the M7 is 2 years antique and it’s now not financially to allocate tools to paintings on an update for the getting old handset. It may well be stated that Android 5.1 is not an immense update, that as an alternative it is composed most commonly of computer virus fixes, unluckily, HTC don’t see it this manner.
What do you assume? Should Android 5.1 were the remaining update for the HTC One M7? Or has HTC fulfilled its promise of giving 2 years value of Android updates?
Come remark on this newsletter: HTC One M7 stuck on Android 5.0.2, will not receive 5.1 update
