Android 5.1.1 Lollipop for the HTC One M8, HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 4 has been expected by the fans for quite a while.
Currently, a custom ROM of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop has been released for the HTC One M8 and HTC One M9 and can be installed on these devices. The downside is that the devices must be rooted in order to install this custom ROM.
There are other HTC models from carriers such as T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint and more that received the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop upgrade last month, while Verizon is still struggling to release this update for its customers.
According to Jeff Gordon, an employee of the Senior Global Online Communications, the HTC One M9 and HTC One M9+ devices will receive directly the Android M operating system. The Android M is expected to be released sometime in October 2015 and for the users who want to test it out, there is already a custom ROM available on the internet.
Graham Wheeler, the product and service director of EMEA, wrote on his Twitter account that the HTC One M9 users from European, Middle Eastern countries, and Africa will receive the Android 5.1 Lollipop OS soon enough.
If you own a Galaxy S5 or Galaxy S6 device and you are using AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile or Sprint as your carrier, then you should know that the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS will be released for your device soon enough.
However, in case you own a Galaxy Note 4 or a Galaxy Note Edge device, then you will need to wait a bit longer, as the upgrade is still on hold and there is no approval for these devices yet. For now, there is no official date when the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update will be released for the two devices we’ve mentioned above.
