HTC One receives Android 4.4.2 upgrade (Europe, US)



HTC One receives Android 4.4.2 KitKat software upgrade in Europe and in the United States, many users report.

HTC made a promise last year that within 90 days KitKat upgrade will be rolling out to HTC One owners, and it looks like the company is on track with it. As of now Android 4.4.2 KitKat software update is pushing out in Europe and the U.S. over the air.

Now it might not be available for everyone at the same time, but we can confirm that the software is available for the unlocked (SIM free) HTC One model, with the other variants following shortly, depending on local carriers software approval speediness.

The new buildĀ 4.19.401.8 is aboutĀ 310MB in size and it will bring new things (but not to many) aside from the latest version of Android, a transparent notification bar with all new white icons, improved battery performance, HTC dropped in-browser Flash support.

If the upgrade notification hasn’t hit your device yet, you can try a manual check by going into Settings – About phone – Software updates – Check for updates. Keep in mind that this is a in-stages operation and it could take a while before it reaches all HTC One phones.
