HTC has replaced its flagship for the year with HTC M9 that comes fully loaded with all the features that M8 users can hope for. However, HTC has confirmed its HTC One M8 model to be upgraded with two of the most wanted features, the Sense 7 UI and Androids update to the latest 5.1 firmware. Both of these features will be debuted in August. So all those users who did not update their One M8 models to M9, are advised to wait a little longer to benefit from Sense 7 and Android Lollipop 5.1 update.

The news was confirmed on Twitter by HTC UK that said, “The HTC One M8 will have a Software Update for Android Version 5.1 and Sense 7 in August 2015.” Previously, the HTC One M8 was updated to Lollipop in January that brought with it enhanced Material Design features and updated applications. Some of the new features include Notification Cards on lock screen, improved privacy and enhanced search privileges.
