This handset that launched back in 2014 finally gets Marshmallow, as well as the latest major iteration of the HTC Sense UI.

HTC Desire 820 has arrived on the market in November 2014, two months after being announced officially. Back then, this Qualcomm Snapdragon 615-powered handset launched with Android 4.4.2 KitKat on board. Fortunately, it looks like it has just received Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, an update that allows its users to take advantage of all the goodies offered by the latest iteration of Google's mobile operating system. 

As we already know, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow comes with Google Now on Tap contextual search, Doze mode, new emojis, granular permissions, multiple tweaks and fixes, as well as the latest security updates. However, HTC handsets also use a custom user interface, namely HTC Sense. This way, HTC Desire 820 gets Android 6.0.1 with HTC Sense 7 on top.

Unfortunately, while GSMArena received a tip about this new firmware update that is already rolling out to Desire 820 handsets via OTA, it is not clear yet which regions get it. The new software number is 3.17.720.3 and those who did not get the notification yet can always check manually for the update.

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.
