The next iteration of Android (dubbed “Android L”) is coming, and like every Android release, users are wondering if their device will be one that supports it. You can count owners of the OnePlus One
smartphone as well as those toting the Moto X
or Moto G
among those who will be able to take advantage of the new version.
Staff Member Mike posted an unequivocal announcement in the CyanogenMod 11S section on OnePlus’ forums
stating that Android L is coming to the handset. “Well, we're keen to announce today that the OnePlus One will indeed be getting the L treatment,” he wrote, adding that the timeline for when it’s out depends on Google. “We promise to have it done within three months of their releasing a final build,” he said.
As for the Moto X and Moto G, a customer care representative told a user that both will receive the Android L update when it’s available. A screenshot of his transcript with Motorola customer shows the conversation, and you can also see
that word on the Moto E receiving the update is unknown.
Customer help is not always the greatest place to get product information, so take this revelation with a grain of salt, but it’s encouraging to hear that multiple existing handsets will be getting the Android L treatment.
