We havenâ€™t heard much about the HTC One mini 2 since its debut in mid-2014. Thatâ€™s changing today, but unfortunately, the news isnâ€™t good.
HTC has confirmed that the One mini 2 wonâ€™t be updated to Android 5.0. The company told one Twitter user that the miniaturized version of the One M8 wonâ€™t get Lollipop because it â€œwill not provide an optimal experience.â€
@EdoardoBerti We determined that Lollipop on the One mini 2 will not provide an optimal experience; it isn’t scheduled to receive the update

Itâ€™s always a bummer to hear that a phone wonâ€™t receive a major OS update, but thatâ€™s especially true in this instance since the HTC One mini 2 is only one year old. HTC didnâ€™t elaborate on how the One mini 2â€™s Lollipop experience isnâ€™t â€œoptimal,â€ but it may have had something to do with the Lollipop-powered Sense software and the phoneâ€™s combination of a Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM. Whatever the case, weâ€™re betting that todayâ€™s news has put a damper on the weekends of One mini 2 owners.
