Just a few hours ago it has been known that the HTC One Mini 2 can not be updatet to Android 5.0 Lollipop. It was the company itself that would have given the news on Twitter, ensuring that this version “does not provide an optimal experience” in the terminal. The truth is that after learning the information many wondered what would happen then to the original model. Unfortunately, you can not receive the update, which already sensed, especially considering that this is a lower device.

The HTC One Mini was released in 2013. It equips a 4.3-inch HD resolution screen. Inside we find a quad-core processor, a Snapdragon 400 and GPU Adreno 305. The chip is accompanied by 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, which has the possibility to be extended by using memory cards MicroSD. Its main camera has a 4-megapixel sensor, a rather unusual resolution in these times. The good thing is that it incorporates the technology UltraPixel, so the quality is quite enough.
As we see, this is a very old device, which remains stuck at Android 4.4 KitKat, the last version to which it could be updated. We do not know at the moment whether there will be possibility of introducing some version of Android Lollipop by a layer of customization, but we’d already talking about unofficial methods. The HTC One Mini and HTC One Mini 2 will not be the only devices on the unavailability of new Android updates. Another that can not seem to finally enjoy the platform update is the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
It’s quite a shame that many users will be unable to test all Lollipop improvements on their devices. This is one of the most important versions of Android. With it came Material Design, a complete overhaul of the interface, which now looks much more modern and minimalist. The icons appear tidier and you can enjoy a much cleaner and smoother platform. Furthermore, it is also possible to appreciate changes in the notification system. It is now possible to access them from within the unlock screen, etc.
Meanwhile, they have also added improvements in the security section, as the possibility to enter our device using facial recognition. Furthermore, in general terms it has improved the speed and battery management, achieving optimize to give us greater autonomy. Yet all have not been benefits. With Android 5.0 Lollipop also appeared some serious errors and bugs, as the problem of the management of RAM, which consumes more than it should. This bug had been fixed in Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, a version that may not officially nor the HTC One Mini tell, neither the One Mini 2 and it seems that neither the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
