HTC: New Flagship devices to get major updates for 2 years

Hoping to open up a session to hear what their customers had to think, HTC hosted an Ask Me Anything on Reddit, taking questions on pretty much anything. Something we highlighted as predictably being a major topic for discussion was the updates situation on the devices, and as expected it was of hot discussion.

Going forward, HTC have committed to bringing all major Android updates to its new flagship devices for two years after their release date.

The controversy comes after the company announced that their once supposed flagship One X and X+ device won’t make it past Android 4.2.

The HTC One has since received fairly steady and quick updates, and it seems HTC want this to continue with their future flagship handsets – fantastic news for future HTC users that their expensive handset won’t become outdated within a few months of being released.
