Are you still waiting for your device to receive the latest Android OS? Ever since Lollipop rolled out Nov. 3, prospects have been eyeing its arrival on their respective handsets, while factory images popped here and there. Flashing these downloads might be the fastest way to get a taste of Lollipop, but the process could be too technical for some. Hence, we've always recommended waiting for official OTA updates.

Carry on, because the odds remain to be in your device's favor, unless Android tells Lollipop won't support it. We've provided the list of units set to receive the 5.0 upgrade below.


According to HTC Source, the company has committed to roll out Lollipop within 90 days following Google's release of the latest code. As the outlet puts it, HTC's One M8 and One M7 (both Google Play Edition) should have received the upgrade by November or December 2014.

Meanwhile, the Android Revolution HD blog tabulated a list of other HTC devices set to get Lollipop:

As what we've reported earlier, the rumored HTC One M9 (and M9 Prime) may be revealed during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain (2-5 March 2015)


For the Korean tech giant, Android Pit reported that Lollipop is currently rolling out among Galaxy S4 GPE units. Accordingly, Galaxy S5 handsets already received the update.

By the end of December, the outlet listed Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S4 as upgrade candidates. The Galaxy Note 3 is expected to take its turn by January 2015.

We have previously noted the upcoming Galaxy S6 (and S6 Edge) as one of 2015's devices expected to ship with Lollipop.


Sony is particularly launching Lollipop to most of its Z-line devices. Know Your Mobile listed the following as expected recipients of the Android upgrade:

The outlet added that Sony's Z Ultra (GPE) gets Lollipop first. The rest of the devices will meet the OS early next year, said the report.
