In a world full of tech gossip, HTC’s definitely not one to be left out, and here’s why. A newly leaked HTC roadmap has tipped Android L plans for the Taiwanese mobile manufacturer, and it may be out sooner than we think.
This alleged roadmap, put together by a source of XDA’s, highlights the rumour that HTC may be looking to rollout Android L across a number of its devices, with the source claiming it could be across nearly a dozen of HTC smartphones.
It appears that the company is mulling over making the update available for its 2013 and 2014 smartphone line-up. The leaker mentioned that the list of devices looking to get the new Android OS love include the HTC One M8 (2014 version), One (M7), One Max, and One Mini, amongst others.
Churning the rumour mill
And the source also indicates that we could be looking at an Android L release on these devices as soon as October. But there’s a high possibility that the software could just be a developer version and not the final real deal.
But before we plan too far ahead, it’s worth taking note that there could possibly be an Android 4.4.4 update released first. HTC recently revealed that its smartphone bandwagon that can officially expect this update as early as July are the One M7, One E8, One Mini 2 and One M8.
It’s noticeable from the roadmap that some of HTC’s other units, such as the One Max and recently unveiled Desire 610, will not get the 4.4.4 update, suggesting that they could directly get bumped up to Android L at a later date.
But all this is just pure speculation and a projected plan, which could change anytime. Besides, we won’t recommend you fully believe it until HTC confirms it.
