HTC One Units In North America To Receive Android 4.4 KitKat Within 90 Days

HTC-One-16One of the downsides to Android devices is that when an update is announced by Google, it usually is a mystery as to whether manufacturer will make an update available for their products. Not to mention there are times when an update has to receive carrier approval first, meaning that there is an additional level of delay from the update’s announcement to its actual deployment. Well the good news for HTC One users is that if you’re looking forward to the recently announced Android 4.4 KitKat, you can expect the update to make its way onto your device within a 90-day time frame.

This was announced by Jason Mackenzie, the President of HTC America who confirmed in an interview with Engadget that the update will be pushed out as quickly as possible. HTC One Play Edition handsets can look forward to the update within the next 15 days, while the Developer and Unlocked editions of the handset can expect it in 30 days. The rest of the HTC One handsets in the US, along with carrier versions, can look forward to the Android 4.4 KitKat update in 90 days. It should be noted that Mackenzie speaks on behalf of HTC’s North American operations, so there’s no telling if HTC One units around the world can expect the same treatment, but we reckon it’s still pretty good news nonetheless.
