Earlier this morning we caught a glimpse of Android 5.0 Lollipop for the HTC One M8 via an unofficial video leaked to the web. While a close up look is better than nothing, we’re sure HTC owners are eagerly awaiting the actual rollout. The good news is that, for owners of unlocked or developer edition One M8 handsets, it appears that the day has finally come!
News of the update comes from HTC’s Mo Versi, who revealed the good news on Twitter. While Mo says the OTA will start rolling out tonight, we have already heard several reports across the web that suggest some folks are already seeing the upgrade. If checking for an update yields no result for you just yet, don’t panic, as we imagine it will be a matter of hours, days or even weeks before it reaches everyone.
HTC One (M8) Unlock and Dev Owners! We have received TA from Google on Lollipop + Sense 6. OTA will be out starting tonight. #HTCAdvantage

Keep in mind that those with carrier-branded HTC One M8 hardware will likely be waiting quite a bit longer for Lollipop, though we’ll be sure to update you as soon as we know more. As for what’s new? We don’t have a full change-log just yet, though obviously Lollipop is the biggest change here. We imagine that at least some of HTC’s apps have been updated a little bit but we have no specifics for you at this time.
For those that already received the update, what region are you in and what do you think so far? Any other notable changes outside of Lollipop? Let us know in the comments below.
