HTC Says Marshmallow Roll Out to Start Late 2015
HTC executive Jason Makenzie today said the company plans to start updating its smartphones to Android 6.0 Marshmallow before the end of the year. The One M9 and One M8 will be first to see the update, which will begin to arrive in December. Other HTC handsets will see Marshmallow in 2016, include the One M9+, One E9 and E9+, the ME, M8, and E8 EYE, as well as the Desire 826, 820, and 816.
HTC’s flagship One phones are iconic and well-regarded. The already refined design has been refined further for 2015, representing a relatively modest update.
This mid-range handset from HTC borrows from the company's high-end designs and repackages them in a more affordable piece of hardware. With Android and Sense aboard, owners have plenty of options to make the Desire 626 their own.

HTC has made updates available to its Lock Screen and Sense Home apps for the One M9 and other handsets. The Lock Screen gains a significant refresh thanks to Lollipop-style notifications, full-screen album artwork during music playback, and more detailed local weather information.
HTC's 2015 flagship is an evolutionary update to last year's model. While the new hardware is refined with better manufacturing and high-quality materials, not all the changes are for the better.
