The HTC Desire EYE is a very good smartphone, it is very close to being a flagship device, while it has a very good camera experience with the EYE technology. Released last September, the EYE has yet to get the bump to Android 5.0 Lollipop, while the older HTC One M8 and HTC One M7 have. However, the HTC Desire EYE is going to be getting the bump to Google's new platform very soon.

Launched by HTC in November last year, the Desire EYE has a near-flagship status. Even so, unlike the One (M7) and One (M8), the EYE hasn't been updated to Android Lollipop. However, the handset should get the new version of Google's OS sometime soon. HTC has yet to officially put the stamp on anything, developer LlabTooFeR says that the Desire EYE will skip past the Android 5.0.1 build and move straight to the Lollipop 5.0.2 build version.

Whether that update will bring the Sense 7 UI will be included or not remains to be seen; the Desire EYE will eventually get the software, but it may be too soon.
