According to an old announcement from HTC, it will be rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop update to the HTC One M8 and HTC One M7 worldwide “within 90 days of receiving final software from Google,” so we can expect an update before February. Other devices of One family will get the update shortly.
Samsung hasn’t yet announced any detail but we can expect that devices launched in the year 2014 will get the update. Samsung is known for its poor track-record in terms of delivering update.
LG hasn’t confirmed the names of devices which will be getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. Still we can expect LG G3 and G2 Pro, and the G2 and original G Pro to get the updates.
High-end Sony smartphones like Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 V and Xperia Z3 compact will get the update very soon. Rest devices may have to wait a little longer.
