Google announced Android L, the next major release of Android, merely an hour or so ago, and HTC has already revealed its plans to update its devices with the new version of the OS. Both the HTC One M8 and the original HTC One will be getting the Android L update within 90 days after Google releases the software to OEMs, a schedule the Taiwanese manufacturer had followed with the KitKat update as well.
Android L is among the most major updates to Android ever, with a major UI overhaul that Google touts as Material Design. There are redesigned Google apps, the switch to ART as the default runtime for better performance, better battery efficiency through Project Volta, features such as a Do Not Disturb mode, and lots more. Beta builds will start rolling out to the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) today, though an actual release of Android L will take place sometime in the fall, which means we could be waiting until 2015 to get it on non-Nexus devices.
