HTC has worked very hard to ensure that the KitKat update reaches its prominent devices promptly. Last year flagship, the HTC One, received KitKat back in February. HTC One Max owners haven’t been that lucky though, they’ve had to wait for quite a while even though Android 4.4 was released by Google late last year. Though it appears that the wait might soon be over for One Max owners on Big Red.
The company’s executive director of product management has announced on Twitter that they have received technical approval for Sense 5.5 and Android 4.4.2 KitKat update from the carrier in question, Verizon. He further adds that users should expect the over-the-air update to start rolling out tomorrow afternoon.
Apart from the visual tweaks in Sense 5.5 itself, the core OS update also brings quite a few visual enhancements. Certain new features will also be added, apart from improved security and system performance.
Given the fact that major updates like this are often rolled out in stages, it may take quite a while for Verizon HTC One Max Android 4.4.2 update to go live in your particular region. Even if the update notification doesn’t immediately pop up on your device, rest assured, it will do so in a couple of days after Monday at the very least.
