With the announcement of the Android L update, not to mention that Android L is set to be released for the HTC One (M8) and HTC One (M7) within 90 days of launch, is there any other reason for the existing HTC One (M8) flagship to pick up Android 4.4.4 KitKat? Apparently so, as XDA contributor and HTC insider Llabtoofer has put up a chart that depicts just which particular smartphone will be on the receiving end of what updates down the road. The Android 4.4.3 KitKat update has definitely been confirmed for the HTC One (M8) and HTC One (M7), but due to Android 4.4.4 KitKat being an extremely minor upgrade, HTC could very well stop the introduction of Android 4.4.3 KitKat as a separate update, and instead merge the two updates for both models of the HTC One.
It has been rumored that this could very well take place some time between July to August, so it would be exciting times ahead, at least before you tinker with Android L. Android L itself will most probably arrive on all of the models that were released last year as well as this year, where it will be accompanied by Sense 6. to boot. Considering how the operating system requirements still remain unknown, chances are the various smartphones are still undergoing the evaluation process.
