HTC has confirmed that the latest Android 4.4 KitKat update for the HTC One flagship (for now) is now rolling out in the UK to those on O2, Three and Vodafone, thanks to the Official HTC Facebook page confirming to a customer that the update is out.
The Taiwanese smartphone maker started releasing the update to UK customers with network-locked devices from yesterday (March 24th), so HTC One users can expect to start seeing the Android KitKat 4.4 update landing on their handsets in batches over the next few weeks.
The Official HTC Software Updates page lists the same, but it also states that owners of the HTC One Max will also soon be getting an update, and following that the HTC One Mini will be next in line for some Android 4.4 KitKat love.
Owners of the HTC One will have surely been patiently waiting for the HTC One update as it was officially released at the start of March, but that was initially only for the SIM-Free and unlocked variants of the phone. Now that the major UK networks all have a version of the OS running, more users will be seeing the update land over the coming weeks.
However, the update is coming out just hours before HTC is set to announce and immediately release the next in line to the flagship Android smartphone crown in the form of the HTC One M8. Yes, the often leaked and long-rumoured follow-up and incremental update to the current HTC One will be announced and then on sale later today.
The new handset will be announced today, March 25th, at simultaneous press conferences in London and New York, with the new handset coming pre-packed with the Android 4.4 KitKat OS.
