HTC Update Roadmap Surfaces Online, Confirms KitKat for HTC One Mini, Butterfly/Droid DNA and Butterfly S


htc one blackAn HTC insider leaked the timetable of the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update that is coming to several HTC devices, including the likes of the HTC One variants and the Butterfly/Droid DNA and Butterfly S.

We already know that the HTC One KitKat update has hit US carriers, but we had no clue regarding the other devices until now. According to the table, the HTC One Dual SIM, One Mini, and the highly-praised HTC One Max are getting their updates along with the HTC One, in late January to mid February. The HTC One, however, is said to receive one more guaranteed update with Sense 6.0 this summer, that may actually carry the next Android version that will probably be released in June or July.

The HTC Butterfly, Droid DNA and Butterfly S will be treated with Android 4.4.2 in the period of March-April. Yeah, it’s a bit later than expected, but at least they are getting it, unlike the last generation of HTC flagships, the One X and One X+, which will stay on Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5.0 for good.

The HTC Evo 4G LTE is currently tested for an update carrying Sense 5.0, while the Desire 601 is in testing phase for Android 4.4.2 with Sense 5.5.
