HTC One was promised to get an update to Android 4.4 KitKat within 90 days from the launch of the android version and HTC has managed to fulfill the very same, there were reports about the update being pushed by the French carrier SFR which later turned out to be “not exactly true”, but today the update has started rolling out via OTA and is sized around 308.24 MB and the software version is 4.19.401.8. The Nordic Countries are very first to get the update for an Unlocked version of the HTC One while carrier versions are in line too, so it won’t be long till that update comes knocking on your European door.
Talking about what the update brings, you can follow the list we have compiled below and keep in mind that your Adobe Flash support will be lost in the Stock HTC browser after you update to Android 4.4 KitKat.
