Two weeks after Sprint's HTC One M9 handsets got the new firmware, AT&T releases the Android 5.1 Lollipop-based update for this flagship on its network.

HTC One M9 handsets on Sprint's network received Android 5.1 Lollipop on the first day of July. Now AT&T seems to have the new firmware ready to be delivered. HTC Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi unveiled that this update should begin its rollout today.

Versi wrote the following yesterday on Twitter - "HTC One (M9) AT&T Owners! We have received technical approval on Lollipop OS 5.1 which includes camera improvements. OTA to start on 7/15!!" Unfortunately, the official AT&T software update page for HTC One M9 has not been updated with new information since April 21, when the handset got a 293.3 MB firmware that carries software version 1.32.502.31 and build number 1.32.502.31 CL506785.

Next to the camera improvements mentioned by Versi, this update is expected to provide better device protection, stronger WiFi connections, improved notification options, as well as multiple minor tweaks and fixes. If everything goes as planned, HTC One M9 users on AT&T should begin to receive the update notifications today. Anxious ones can always check for updates manually, as usual.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
