Google's latest software, Android 5.0 Lollipop, update has been rolled out to several devices, including Nexus series, for the last three weeks, and now, it is expected to come to Google Play Editions of the HTC One M7 and HTC One M8 soon.
The LG G Pad 8.3 was the first GPE device to get Android 5.0 Lollipop update and the next in line seems to be the HTC One M8 GPE and HTC One M8 M7 GPE. The Taiwanese company hasn't included the GPE versions on its firmware update tracker, but they are very likely to receive it in a few days time.
It was earlier reported that Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA would be rolled out to Google Play Edition of the HTC One and M8 on Monday evening, but that didn't happen.
According to a report by Tech Radar, HTC's VP of Product Management, Mo Versi, said the new software couldn't be rolled out to GPE versions of HTC One and HTC One M8 as Google is busy.
Meanwhile, Samsung device users are still in dark on Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA update, as the company is yet to announce its roll-out. The new software is expected to be made available to Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 4, but it is yet to happen despite several devices running the firmware for the last few weeks.
However, the test-build of Android 5.0 Lollipop for Sprint variant of the Galaxy S5 with model number SM-G900P was recently leaked, hinting that the firmware could be rolled out to Samsung devices soon.
The test-build of Android 5.0 Lollipop for Galaxy S5 was seen on the XDA developers community, uploaded by one named Garwynn. The official roll-out of the software is still unknown.
