HTC has shown remarkable
commitment to the HTC One
regarding the software updates,
eschewing traditional notions that
OEMs don’t update their phones in
a timely manner. Sticking to that
commitment, HTC has now
announced that it will be updating
the HTC One to Android 4.4 KitKat.
Jason Mackenzie, president of HTC
America, has confirmed that the
carrier locked version of the HTC
One in North America will receive
the 4.4 update within 90 days.
Although that’s a pretty large time
frame, at least HTC has given one,
unlike most other OEMs out there.
Meanwhile, those who purchased
the unlocked developer edition of
the handset will be receiving the
update within 30 days. Finally,
those who bought the Google Play
edition will get it the quickest, that
is, within 15 days.
So far, Motorola is the only other
OEM that has announced Android
4.4 update for their handset. We
are hoping other OEMs will join in
on the KitKat party soon.
