At HTC we gave the promise to provide a corresponding update to its flagship devices of the past two years, within 90 days of receipt of the source code.

This includes, among other things, a revised lockscreen, which from then displays the alerts, the Task Manager in the cards look, a redesigned the launcher and a refreshed camera app.
