HTC One M8 to get Sense 7 along with Android M; could Skip Android 5.1 Update

HTC One M8 owners happen to be waiting to get a taste of HTC’s latest Android user interface since HTC launched the One M9 this past Spring with Sense 7 out of box. Although HTC formerly declared that Sense 7 will reach the One M8 users this August, a fresh Tweet from HTC’s Mo Versi discloses that owners of HTC’s main phone could have a bit more waiting to do.

This ensures the latest HTC UI will not be coming until later this year since Android M is not expected to release anytime soon. Based on the precise date when Google signals off the ultimate model of Android M and ships it to apparatus manufacturers, it could not be unimaginable for Sense 7 and Android M to reach the One M8 in the beginning of 2016.
