HTC will support U.S. flagship models with OS updates for at least two years

HTC will support U.S. flagship models with OS updates for at least two years HTC, during a Reddit AMA, has said they are focusing on Android updates, after a notably rough past of slow updates.
The company has made an effort to get all HTC One devices up to Kit Kat (Android 4.4), and despite delays, has succeeded as of February.

Into the future, all U.S. flagship devices will be updated to the latest Android for at least two years following their releases, a strong promise from the company. Just last month, the company confirmed that it could not update the One X or One X+ due to Nvidia's lack of support for the processing chip used in the One X+.

Because the company only confirmed for U.S. devices, it is unclear how international models will fare.
