Google previewed Android L at I/O, and almost immediately after HTC announced that it will roll out Android L update for the One (M8) and One (M7) within 90 days of Google releasing the source code. Now a leaked roadmap, courtesy of @LlabTooFer, has thrown some light on what all phones are likely to get the forthcoming Android update.

In addition to the One (M8) and the One (M7), HTC is also likely to roll out the Android L update for dual-SIM One (M7), One mini 2, One M8 Ace, One Max, One mini, Butterfly S, Desire 816 and the Desire 610. The update is under the evaluation stage, which means that once HTC gets the source code from Google, it will test Android L on these devices. Post the testing, a final call will be taken sometime between October and December.
Before the Android L update however, HTC is planning on skipping Android 4.4.3 update and will release Android 4.4.4 KitKat update. The latter was a small and unexpected update, which essentially contains a patch for an OpenSSL bug. This bug enabled hackers to initiate a man-in-the-middle (MTM) attack. The roll out will start in July or August with the One (M8) and the One (M7), while the One (M8) dual-SIM, One mini 2, and One M8 Ace are slated to receive it in August or September.
