We all are aware of the fact that HTC has never been able to provide excellent customer support when it comes to updating their smartphones to latest android versions, but today they have made some promises on this subject about their upcoming flagships for 2014. HTC has replied to customer queries on Reddit and have confirmed that they plan to bring “all major Android updates” to their forthcoming North American flagship devices for a full two years after they’ve been released.
Now judging from this new promise that HTC has made one must think why now ? and if you can do it now why not already ? Yes I am the one to believe just the same folks. HTC recently announced that its 2012 flagships the One X and One X+ will not get Android 4.4 KitKat which for sure made a lot of customers mad, as they did pay huge amounts to get one. Additionally the biggest rival of the HTC One X from 2012 (Samsung Galaxy S III) has already been promised Android 4.4 so that doesn’t make a HTC fan proud at all. However the promise does light up customers, who are looking to buy a HTC M8 in the North American region once it goes on sale, sadly other regions will have to bear HTC’s non-giving nature.
The Reddit thread did also mention that the company is re-thinking about the One X and One X+ on the Android 4.4 update, the major setback is that they don’t have support from Nvidea and hence the One X+ is hanging by the thread. They also mentioned that the North America One X powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor can be update but it wouldn’t just be fair if they left One X+ and updated just the One X.
