Folks with the 2014 HTC Desire Eye smartphone will be happy to know that their device will get the official Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update later this year. The HTC Desire Eye marshmallow update will use the HTC Sense 7.0 UI.
The confirmation comes from HTC ROM developer LlabTooFer, who sent out a tweet with the good news. So far, the HTC One M9 and the M8 were the only smartphones from HTC that would be receiving the Android 6.0.1 update. Luckily, the Desire Eye owners can also enjoy some sweet marshmallow on their devices.
There is no estimated release date for the update, but it should be available later this year.
The HTC Desire Eye is a smartphone that caters to all the selfie freaks out there. It is marketed as a selfie phone and has a front flash to take selfies in the dark if you’re into that. There’s a 13-megapixel front facing camera that supports HDR to make your selfies look better.
The Desire Eye was introduced in October 2014 and has a 5.2-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. On the back, there’s a 13-megapixel sensor with dual LED flash and F/2.0 aperture. All of this is backed up by a 2400 mAh battery.
It originally came with Android 4.4 KitKat but was updated to Android Lollipop in 2015. Now, with an update to Android Marshmallow, users can experience improved performance, battery life and other cool features.
The HTC Desire Eye Marshmallow update will include the battery saving Doze Mode, Google Now on Tap, improved individual app permissions and more. The update will be based upon HTC’s Sense 7 user interface.
