HTC One Android 4.4 KitKat Update Details Trickle Out
HTC One Android 4.4 KitKat update details continue to trickle out ahead of its release. This time, its HTC One Developer Edition users that are the benefactors as HTC has confirmed that the device, at some point, will get the latest version of Android 4.4 KitKat, Android 4.4.2 KitKat, an update that rolled out to Nexus users last week.
In November, HTC confirmed a series of Android 4.4 KitKat updates. Within 15 days, it would release the HTC One Google Play Edition Android 4.4 update. Within 30 days, it would unleash the HTC One Developer Edition Android 4.4 update. And within 90 days, the regular old HTC One Android 4.4 KitKat update would emerge.
Thus far, HTC has kept its word. The HTC One Google Edition not only received Android 4.4 but it recently received Android 4.4.2 KitKat, the latest version of the software. The HTC One Developer Edition is currently running Android 4.4 KitKat but it should be getting another update at some point in the future.
HTC’s Mo Versi has confirmed that the company plans to upgrade the HTC One Developer Edition to Android 4.4.2 KitKat at some point down the road. He claims that he will release details on the timing though exactly when he will do that is unclear. The update isn’t likely to be a big one but like the HTC One Google Play Android 4.4.2 update, it should have some bug fixes on board.
This announcement is just another HTC One Android 4.4 KitKat update domino that has fallen in the past few weeks. Recently, HTC confirmed that the Android 4.4 KitKat updates rolling out to U.S. users in January would be Android 4.4.2 KitKat updates and that they would have Sense 5.5 on board. Sense 5.5 brings enhancements to BlinkFeed and Zoe.
The company continues to claims a January release date for regular HTC One devices though the company has held back on offering a specific release date. Whatever the case, it looks like HTC will upgrade all of its HTC One models with Android 4.4.2 KitKat, Google’s latest and greatest version of KitKat.
