LineageOS ends official Nougat builds as Pie support approaches

LineageOS is one of the most popular custom ROMs available, with somewhere around two million active installations. It typically takes a while for the project to update to newer versions of Android, since development is largely done by maintainers in their spare time. Six months after the public release of Android 9 Pie, it looks like LineageOS is about ready to make the jump — but not before dropping older devices.

Sprint HTC One M8 Receives OTA Software Update Bringing Eye Experience Enhancements And Android 4.4.4

Sprint's HTC One M8 has received an over-the-air update that gives that 4 "Ultrapixel" camera a boost. No, it doesn't magically cram in more pixels into those photos, but it does greatly expand just what you can do with the shooter on both the front and the back of the device. This comes courtesy of the new HTC Eye Experience.

These software enhancements, which HTC showed off at a selfie-themed event where it unveiled the Desire EYE, introduce a number of innovations that actually catch our interest. There's face tracking for video chats, split capturing (which records through both cameras at once), auto/voice seflies, and several other features.

T-Mobile is currently pushing out an over-the-air update to its version of HTC's flagship phone that bumps the software up to Android 4.4.4.

This OTA also comes with the suite of features bundled together as the HTC Eye Experience, which the manufacturer detailed in a selfie-themed event where it unveiled the Desire EYE.

The Eye Experience, which we've previously detailed more in-depth, introduces numerous features that range from useful to just plain gimmicky. Useful: Face Tracking, the ability to keep up with up to four faces during a video chat at once and show them to a recipient in a split screen.

The HTC One M8 Eye Is Now Ready For Purchase, As Long As You Live In China

A couple of weeks ago, a good number of us were turned on by the idea of an updated HTC One M8 that shipped with a camera packing not 4, but 13 megapixels. Then we had our hopes and dreams shattered with news that the device was expected to be a China and India exclusive.

The phone has now gone on sale in China. It will probably get imported into India, but there's nothing new to share concerning the other side of the globe.

AT&T HTC One M8 Android 4.4.3 OTA Software Update Now Hitting Devices

A number of HTC One M8 owners running on AT&T's network have started to receive an over-the-air software update delivering Android 4.4.3 to their devices. It doesn't bring about a big visual change for a flagship phone that already launched with KitKat, but the number of optimizations and security fixes contained within this release make it something worth downloading. Well, there's that, and there's the warm fuzzy feeling that comes from running a newer version of Android.

The firmware number is 2.23.502.3, and it's apparently coming in at around 660MB.
