HTC UK promises to bring Android L to One M8, M7 quickly

HTC_One_E8_family_blog-headerHTC said Wednesday that it plans to bring Google’s newest Android operating system to its flagship phones saying they will have it ready 90 days after they receive the final software from Google. The move is part of the company’s campaign to retain customers amid years of flagging sales. Despite selling critically acclaimed products, the Taiwan company has tumbled out of the top rankings of smartphone makers, unable to match the much larger advertising budgets of powerhouses such as Samsung or Apple. HTC soon after said it plans to update its HTC One M8 and the One M7, last year’s flagship phone, to run on Android L “within 90 days of receiving final software from Google.” The promise is part of HTC UK Software Updates,  where HTC UK said in a press release:

“HTC is excited about the new features in Android L and we can’t wait to share them with our customers. We are committed to updating our flagship HTC One family as fast as possible. We 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 thereafter by other One family members and select devices.”
