OnePlus confirms its phone will get Android L, expected within 3 months of Google shipping


OnePlus announced this morning that its flagship One smartphone, announced last April, will be updated to run the latest Android L operating system within 90 days of Google shipping the final release of the software. 

This news comes less than a few weeks after HTC confirmed that the One M7 and One M8 will also receive Android L within 90 days of the final build. Android L is currently available as a developer preview for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 devices, with a public release expected later this year.

OnePlus staff member Mike confirmed as much in an official forum post:

“So a lot – I mean, a lot – of people are asking about whether we’ll be getting on the Android L train. It was announced while I was asleep and when I got back to work the morning after, there were already a bunch of forum posts and (strangely) customer support requests about it.

Well, we’re keen to announce today that the OnePlus One will indeed be getting the L treatment. When, you ask? That depends on Google. We promise to have it done within three months of their releasing a final build.”

The highly-anticipated smartphone, which ships with CyanogenMod, is slowly rolling out to consumers through an invite-only program and through contests and promotional events. The OnePlus One starts at $299 unlocked.
