More than a month after its Google Play Edition sibling got the Marshmallow treatment, the Android 6.0 update for the unlocked HTC One M8 is ready.

The HTC One M8 Google Play Edition received the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update more than a month ago, although the HTC One M9 was still stuck with Lollipop. Even now, users of the flagship launched in March 2015 are waiting to get Marshmallow. On the other hand, the unlocked HTC One M8 that launched one year before the M9 gets Android 6.0 Marshmallow and joins its GPE sibling.

Less than a day ago, HTC's VP of product management Mo Versi posted this on Twitter: "HTC One (M8) unlocked owners! Great news, all testing has been complete and the update for Marshmallow will be sent out within 24 hours. Thx" Since he is in charge of the Americas, the company's senior global online communications manager Jeff Gordon also made it clear that "other regions are on a separate Marshmallow update schedule."

Unfortunately, the update details for the unlocked One M8 handsets in the US or the schedule for the rest of the world have not been detailed yet. While we should get the details of the update later this week, if not today, it might take a while until the global schedule becomes public.

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.
