The elusive OnePlus One
didn’t manage to reach too many customers - not just because of the unusual invite system which lets you buy it (or, rather, doesn't
let you buy it), but also because of software-related delays.
Even so, in case you already have a OnePlus One, or you’re expecting to get one in the near future, you should know that the handset won’t be stuck running CyanogenMod 11S (which is based on Android 4.4 KitKat).
OnePlus today promised (via its official forum) that its high-end, yet affordable smartphone would be updated to Android L
“within three months” after Google releases the final build of the new OS. As you may know, a similar time frame was given by HTC
regarding Android L updates for its One M8
and One M7.
Google said that Android L for regular users would be available starting this fall, which means OnePlus might update the One before the end of the year. Of course, we’re hoping that all other flagship Android handsets will get Android L before 2015 begins.
