It looks like January is going to be the month of Lollipop for many Android device manufacturers, and that trend continues with the announcement from HTC’s VP of Product Management that the company has now received technical approval for the update and that it will be rolling out over-the-air to HTC One (M8) unlocked and developer editions starting tonight.

The Android 5.0 update for HTC device isn’t going to be just an update to Lollipop, though, as the company is also launching its Sense 6 skin atop the latest version of Google’s mobile OS. We got a peek at Sense 6.0 running on the HTC One (M8) late last month, which should probably give you a pretty good idea of what today’s update is bringing.

Earlier today we learned that Samsung is rolling out Android 5.0 to the Galaxy S5 in the UK, and also touched on the fact that Android 5.0.2 is today hitting the second generation Moto G.
