HTC promises to provide major Android updates to all future flagship phones

HTC has certainly caught some flak in the past for decisions to stop providing major updates to some of its flagship hardware, including the One X, One X+ and One S.

After conceding that the company’s track record with updates isn’t spotless, they confirmed that HTC plans to bring “all major Android updates” to its forthcoming flagship devices for a full two years after they’ve been released. We can hazard a guess at what those new flagships may be, but it’s heartening to see HTC pledge prolonged support for its new phones. After all, few things are as frustrating as buying a shiny new smartphone only to see its maker basically forget about it after a few months.
