Default [silly question] Will nexus 5 get the final Android L?

This might be silly question, but i have been wondering if we will get the final Android L in fall. I am very new to this how this gets updated and so on, and i wondered if we will be left with only the testing version of Android L or we will get the final thing too in fall as official update to nexus 5?

Nexus devices usually get 18 months of updates after release, so yes.

Thread belongs in Q&A, not General.

No doubt! Wouldn't make much sense giving us a preview and then not giving us an update

Of course, that's what the Nexus line of phones were meant for. That's what this OS was built and tested on by google engineers.

The last major update for the Nexus 5 will most probably be the L release. Minor updates will happen like we had 4.4.1, 4.4.2 and such.
Devices: Nexus 5 (Main), T-Mobile Samsung S2 T989, LG Optimus One

The Nexus 4 is still receiving updates isn't it? Question answered.

No, if L is 5.0, the Nexus 5 will at least get 5.1 as well. It won't be a question until 5.2, but the Nexus 5 will probably get that as well. Heck, we're pretty sure even the Nexus 4 will get L, and the N5 will get updates at least a year longer than the N4.
