Remember the HTC One MAX? I am sure some of you not only remember it, but also scooped it up. The device was released shortly after the first HTC One (M7) and found its way to a variety of networks, including Sprint and Verizon. Since the devices release in 2013 though, it hasn’t seen a ton of love. The last update the device received was to Android 4.4.2 with Sense 6. That was back in April and May of last year. HTC is now giving the device a little bit of love by way of a new update to Android 5.0.2. Or so it would appear from screenshots and chatter over on the XDA forums.
Before all you Verizon and Sprint users get excited and start hitting the update button, it is important to know that the update is currently landing in Asian and European markets. Specifically I see the thread talks surrounding Poland and France with mention of Asia too. Infamous leakster @LlabTooFer also confirmed it for Taiwan, a month ago. The update does keep the device loaded with Sense 6, so don’t expect anything new there. Now we just have to wait, see and wonder is Sprint and Verizon will be getting to the update or letting is slide on by since the device is over 2-years old at this point.
On a bit of a side note, the HTC One MAX Android 5.0.2 kernel source is also on the HTC website. Not sure if that is entirely new, but it is present.
Any of our international readers seeing the update landing on their HTC One MAX devices? Seems to range in size from 760MB’s ish to 924MB’s ish depending on device location. I haven’t found
