July 28, 2016


Time for more Android devices to receive their Marshmallow update.

The T-Mobile and MetroPCS versions of the HTC Desire 626s are being updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. According to T-Mobile, its 626s has been getting the update since July 19, but HTC’s Mo Versi says that the updates will start going out on July 25.

T-Mo’s Desire 626s support page says that the Marshmallow update is 835MB in size and will bump the Desire 626s to software version 2.17.531.1. In addition to the move to Marshmallow, the updates will bring enhanced (RCS) messaging.

The HTC Desire 626s launched at T-Mobile and MetroPCS around one year ago to shore up those providers’ affordable Android lineups. Sometimes affordable devices like the Desire 626s are forgotten after their release, so it’s nice to see the 626s receiving a significant upgrade like this one.
