HTC commits to Android L for One series

This year Google I/O was probably the best so far, and also a lot happened this year. Google introduced their latest version of Android, known as the Android L. The new OS is coming this fall, and HTC is making sure that their customers are not having second thoughts about it. They said on their official blog that:

We are committed to updating our flagship HTC One family as fast as possible and will begin rolling out updates to the HTC One (M8) and HTC One (M7) in regions worldwide within 90 days of receiving final software from Google, followed shortly by other select HTC devices.

HTC_Android-Response_EMEAHTC is trying their best to be the first one to release Android L update for the One series. That’s definitely a good news for all HTC One (M7) users because they might have thought that HTC is only focusing on the flagship smartphone right now.

Android L is still the codename, and it might be known as Lemoncake when it is officially released. Though we personally like Lemonheads as well, you should share your thoughts with us too.

Are you happy to hear this One-users?

    As a M7 owner I am pleased greatly. I now have Sense 6, which is brilliant (thanks to the extra customisation tools included. Changing the system font and slightly tweaking the built in “custom” themes, makes my phone personal to me.

    The jury is still out on how big a change Android L will be. Are we getting to a point where vanilla android is that good that the real changes are happening ‘under the surface’? This is a rhetorical question as not many of us have seen Android L.

    As to HTC’ s wish to push it out to customers within 90 days? I will believe it when I see it! They said the same thing about Sense 6 and missed the deadline (it may well not have been their fault, I blame the carriers).

    Remember that bigger numbers don’t necessarily equal better phones. HTC has the right approach (IMHO) putting usability and functionality ahead of headline grabbing specs that grab notoriety but do little to improve the user experience.
