With the announcement of Android L, there’s already excitement building for the next version of Android, but OEMs are still rolling out updates from previous versions. Infamous HTC leaker @LlabTooFeR has come through again, with a roadmap of which devices will see which update when.
While he has confirmed that the original HTC Butterfly and the HTC One X won’t receive any further updates, the news is better for current and former flagships – the HTC One M7 and M8. Both the M7 and M8 will begin receiving their update to 4.4.4 in July/August, with HTC also looking to an Android L update later in the year.
There is only speculation left for other devices, including the original HTC One variants – Max and Mini and the ‘Ṕlastic M8’ the HTC One E8, as well as the recently released HTC Desire range – 610, 816. Android 4.4.4 won’t come to any of these devices, however an L release may be on the cards depending on how the evaluation planned for October/November goes.
As usual, you will have to wait for carrier testing to clear any updates if your phone was purchased through a carrier. If it was purchased outright, you should see the updates roll out slightly quicker. We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but it’s good news for the M7 and M8 at least.
