Title: Android M Confirmed For Desire 816
Post by: the_Victorian on September 30, 2015, 10:07:03 AM
HTC has confirmed that the Desire 816 will get Android 6.0. Of course, they could default on their word, but at least we have hope!

I just got word that the update is finished for all carriers and should be coming any time now.
I will be sure to post a new topic when I get it OTA.

That's amazing! Other models got it some time ago so I was worrying  that VM would be too lazy to bother with the 816... Really impressed with HTC for being so faithful to a 2 year old mid ranger, especially on a pre paid network!  ;D

You'll like marshmallow, the stand by battery life is ridiculous, I lose like 1% every 4 hours when I'm working

Just curious- where did you find that tweet? Seems odd no VM users are getting the OTA yet

Been checking daily, but haven't got it yet. I read that VM will get it when Sprint does. Seems like every other country is getting it first. I imagine that the carrier is still adding stuff and testing. Worst case scenario though, if we don't get an official release for whatever reason, it should be ported without issue since all the models have the update.
I do find it strange that HTC doesn't list the phone as getting the update on their site, but Mo Versi, HTCs VP of product management, did confirm VM would get it as well. Though that was months ago.

Here is the recent article I read (posted MARCH 9, 2016):
http://www.androidauthority.com/htc-desire-816-marshmallow-678959/

And a very recent Twitter response from HTC USA confirming that Virgin Mobile will get it as well (posted 10 Mar 2016):

Still no OTA yet... but I did find this twitter update from the end of march. It should still be coming. We haven't been forgotten! It's just taking them forever and a day.
