The rumors are true – HTC has confirmed to TechRadar the One M8 will not receive Android 7 Nougat software. In a statement to TechRadar a spokesperson for HTC said, "The HTC One M8 is outside of the update window, so it is not currently slated to receive Nougat.It will continue to receive critical security fixes as necessary and some HTC apps will continue to receive updates direct from Google Play

It's not HTC's fault. It's Qualcomm. They don't release the Graphics Driver that supports Vulkan API for the 800/801 chipsets.

However. Android Nougat don't need Vulkan to function. You should see the unofficial ports of Nougat from the devs

it would still be nice to have it if for nothing else but the power savings (assuming it takes over the running of openGL written games).

Really wished Google would support devices for 3 years, 2 years is really short. The M8 GPE with the 801 is still very fast and smooth.

Its not up to Google, its up to the individual device manufacturer.

Sure, it would be nice if HTC supported the device longer. But HTC did good by this phone, 2 years is a decent run. Especially since it was largely a financial decision; and HTC is in dire straits financially.

In contrast, Samsung abandoned my Tab Pro 8.4 almost at birth (around the same time the M8 was released), since it didn't sell well enough (whatever that is). A couple minor bug fix patches, but it never even got a single major update; and never made it past KitKat that it deployed with.

"It will continue to receive critical security updates", says htc. What a joke. I'm still on the 12-2015 security patch.
Shame on you, HTC!

Yes, HTC hasn't done too hot releasing the monthly security patches, however, I was surprised we got Marshallow at all, so I'm not complaining too hard.

Some devices never get a single update at all. The M8 started life with Kit Kat and ended on Marshmallow, which is pretty rare for any non-Nexus Android device.

Yeah but remember that Lollipop was buggy and we didn't get another update fixing any of that for a whole year.
