It might not be the newest Android phone in the world, and it might not be the most powerful. It also isn’t the fastest phone on the planet, and it doesn’t have the highest-resolution display either. There is little question that the HTC One (M8) is the sleekest phone the world has ever seen though, and it’s also the most solid and well-built.

While we all wait to see what HTC has in store for us in 2015, owners of the company’s 2014 flagship phone still have plenty to look forward to thanks to Google’s major Android 5.0 Lollipop update, which will soon be available for the One (M8). Thanks to a new leak, however, we can see what Lollipop looks like on the M8 right now.

DON’T MISS: The Galaxy S6 news we’ve been waiting for may have just leaked

We have already seen Android Lollipop running on the HTC One (M8) a few times thanks to earlier leaks, but now we have a new video to enjoy that kicks things up a notch. In this latest video, which was published by the Vietnamese HTC fan blog HTC Vietnam, we can see the latest Lollipop build in action for nearly four minutes.

The video shows Android 5.0.1 Lollipop with HTC’s updated Sense user interface layer on top, and it looks great so far. There’s no telling if the version we’re seeing is final, of course, but HTC will be releasing Lollipop to the public soon so the odds are pretty good that we’re at least looking at a near-final version here.

The full video is embedded below.
