In his words, said software update will arrive in early April.
With this statement literally HTC admits that the phone hardware is okay to “absorb” the new software, but the company simply did not deal modify the ordinary version of Android 5.1 and add your own Sense UI on it. Hitherto always justified Taiwanese hardware for the lack of updates, but this time does not seem so. Furthermore, HTC One M7 former flagship, it was not a budget phone, therefore maintenance should not be a problem and is mandatory. Note also that GPE option is only available in a few countries, the ordinary version is available worldwide and is much more common.
Just for comparison:
