HTC One (M8) and One (M7) will be updated to Android L "within 90 days of receiving final software from Google"
HTC seems to be the first manufacturer that’s announcing something regarding future updates to Google’s new Android L (officially presented earlier today).
The Taiwanese company just revealed that its current flagship smartphone, the One (M8), will be updated to Android L “within 90 days of receiving final software from Google.” What’s more, the One (M7) from last year will also receive the update within the same time frame.
Obviously, Google hasn’t provided the final Android L software to manufacturers yet, but it will do it pretty soon. Even so, the new platform’s release is scheduled for “this fall”, so there won’t be any official updates coming earlier than that. Still, if you have an HTC One (M8) or One (M7), you should hope to get a taste of Android L before the end of the year.
HTC didn’t say anything about Android L for the rest of its handsets - so, for example, at the moment we don’t know if smartphones like the Desire 816 will get the update.
Android L will offer a wide range of new features, starting with a completely revamped design. You can see all the new features of the platform in this post. You can also check out a list of other (non-HTC) smartphones that will be updated to Android L here.
