When Android 4.4 KitKat first arrived HTCpromised timely updates within 90 days of the announcement. Now that Android L release has been announced, HTCconfirms a similar plan is in place for the next major version of Android. The update will reportedly start pushing out to the HTCOne M7 and M8 within 90 days of getting the final code from Google.

So when can you expect your HTCdevice to make the upgrade? Good question. With Android L release having an early developer preview period this time around, ahead of its fall release, it’s unclear when exactly the final code for L release will actually hit HTC’s hands. In other words, don’t expect the three months to be from today, though we wouldn’t be surprised if HTCplays around with the developer version ahead of time, allowing it to push things out as quickly as possible.

Here is HTC’s official statement on the matter:

HTC is excited about the new features in the Android L release and we can’t wait to share them with our customers. We are committed to updating our flagship HTCOne family as fast as possible as part of our HTCAdvantage program. We will begin rolling out updates to the HTCOne (M8) and HTCOne (M7) worldwide within 90 days of receiving final software from Google, followed shortly thereafter by other One family members and select devices.

Either way, it’s good to see HTCstaying on top of things, while also not abandoning its now-year-old One M7.
