Android L is probably the best Android version yet and naturally we are all wondering when we’ll get to experiment with the OS on our smartphones. While Google has already released Android L developer preview version for Nexus 5 and 7, you may not be using these two devices as your daily driver.
If you are using any non-Nexus Android device, you must be wondering as to when your manufacturer is releasing the update for your smartphones. Luckily, some OEMs have already announced their plans for update, although that might take some time.
So, let’s take a look at the smartphones that will be getting this amazing Android version.
Google Nexus Family
It’s no surprise that Google’s Nexus family will be getting the update first. Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013 models already have the developer preview version of L and according to recent reports, the Nexus 4, 7 (2012) as well as Nexus 10 are going to get the update along with their recent siblings.
Although, the ownership of Motorola has changed hands since the launch of its first Moto branded smartphone, that doesn’t mean the company will stop its tradition of timeless updates. Today, the customer support team of Motorola confirmed that Moto X and the popular Moto G would be getting the Android L update. However, they did not say anything about its recent unveiling, Moto E.
One of the first OEMs to actually come out and announce its plans for Android L was HTC. The company has promised the latest update within 90 days of getting the code from Google. This means, if Google release Android L in November, HTC One M8 and HTC One M7 will receive the update by February. The company also confirms that it would update One family members and select other devices.
Looks like the best value for money Android smartphone currently in the market, OnePlus One will also be getting the Android L treatment that too within 90 days of receiving the code from Google. The company recently confirmed the same, which means the phone should be getting the update around the same time as HTC, if not earlier.
A few days back, the chipmaker announced that its Tegra Note 7 tablet would be receiving the update as soon as Google releases the firmware officially.
Although these are the confirmed devices who will be receiving the Android L update as of now, we are sure many OEMs will come forward to reveal a long list of supported devices in the next few months. Current and last year’s flagships are almost sure to receive the update, followed by older and less powerful siblings.
