HTC One mini 2 not scheduled to get Android 5.0 update

We haven’t heard much about the HTC One mini 2 since its debut in mid-2014. That’s changing today, but unfortunately, the news isn’t good.

HTC has confirmed that the One mini 2 won’t be updated to Android 5.0. The company told one Twitter user that the miniaturized version of the One M8 won’t get Lollipop because it “will not provide an optimal experience.”

It’s always a bummer to hear that a phone won’t receive a major OS update, but that’s especially true in this instance since the HTC One mini 2 is only one year old. HTC didn’t elaborate on how the One mini 2’s Lollipop experience isn’t “optimal,” but it may have had something to do with the Lollipop-powered Sense software and the phone’s combination of a Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM. Whatever the case, we’re betting that today’s news has put a damper on the weekends of One mini 2 owners.
