Executive Mo Versi, confirmed that technical approval has been received by Google on the new firmware. There is no information at the moment concerning the same update for the HTC One M7 GPe, which will be very soon.
It certainly looks like Google Play Edition devices are going extinct soon. Today the Samsung Galaxy S4 GPE is no longer available for sale, to quote the exact language used by Google in its online storefront. May be the S5 Google Play Edition is coming ?!
Sure, the S4 was getting quite old by now, but its disappearance from the Play Store means there is now only one GPE device left: the HTC One M8. That's a lot newer than the S4, so maybe it will stick around some more.
