OnePlus One Android L Update

The OnePlus One isn’t exactly the easiest smartphone to get your hands on, but for enthusiastic Android fans it’s still the most exciting smartphone we’ve seen this year. Now, to add a bit of extra excitement, OnePlus has not only confirmed that not only will the OnePlus One be updated to Android L following its release this fall… it might get the L update faster than most leading Android smartphones on the market.

In a post on its support forum, OnePlus on Friday responded to a wave of questions by confirming that the One will in fact be updated to Android L. Even better, a company representative stated that the One’s new CyanogenMod build based on Android L will be released within just a few months of when Google makes its final Android L code available.

Here’s the company’s full statement:

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.
