HTC has done a commendable job when it comes to software updates. The manufacturer was among the first few to roll out the Android KitKat update for the HTC One M7. With the announcement of Android L, Google’s upcoming version of Android, HTC has said it will roll out for the HTC One M8 and One M7 within 90 days of receiving the update from Google.

“Our approach will be the same with the Android L release from Google. This release promises to bring new features and tools to Android and we are excited to bring it to you and your HTC. As part of our HTC Advantage commitment globally, we pledge to update all of our HTC One (M8) and HTC One (M7) smartphones within 90 days of receiving final software from Google,” HTC said in a blog post.

Google has showcased the new Android L version with some exciting features at the Google I/O conference. However, they have not provided the software to OEMs and chip manufacturers, but we’re hoping it should happen very soon. HTC says the 90 day timeline will begin as soon as Google sends them the latest Android L software.

There’s no mention of any other device except the ones mentioned above, but let’s just hope for the best, and wait for HTC to reveal information about the roll out for more handsets, especially the HTC One Mini 2.
