Unlocked HTC One M8 gets Android 6.0 OTA

HTC seems to get more and more timely with its updates these days. Case in point: the unlocked HTC One M8, which is getting an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the next 24 hours. The first device to get an update to Android 6.0 was M8 Google Play Edition, which received its OTA last month, and now it appears that the unlocked M8 version will get its due update as well.       For HTC One M8 to get an update to Android 6.0 this early it means that its owners will get an update well before the owners of this year’s HTC flagship, One M9.   This OTA should bring about a comparatively stock-looking version of Sense UI. After the update arrives, its open source kernel files should be around in a month. This means that custom ROM makers will get new useful tools as they work on bringing their users the custom Marshmallow lifestyle.   Source: AndroidPolice

HTC M8_EYE coming next month – the same M8 with a better camera

HTC M8_EYE seems to be a regular M8 device with a 13MP camera that will be available sometime next month. It seems that the new device dropped the Ultrapixel cameras and is adopting a 13 MP Duo Camera instead. The duo camera setup is supposed to use the familiar 4 MP image sensor used in the M7, and it seems to have larger pixels in detriment of a better resolution. If the rumors are true, the device will also sport the Sense 6 UI and an Android 4.4.4 when it is released. There are few other details known so far and no other tweaks and tinkerings are known about the new EYE device. It does seem that the device will only be available for the Chinese and Indian market.
