HTC’s president for their HTC America division, Jason McKenzie, took to Twitter over the weekend and announced the company is preparing an update to the HTC EVO 4G LTE that will take it up to Android 4.3 and Sense 5. The EVO 4G LTE has been out since mid-2012, so it is interesting to see HTC reaching that far back to make sure an update is available. The EVO 4G LTE already runs Android 4.1 and has Sense 4 running on top of that. According to McKenzie’s post, the update is supposed to roll out before the end of the year.
Those watching McKenzie’s Twitter account noted that he was quite busy over the weekend interacting with other posters. Trying to improve the dialogue with customers and showing a commitment to support for older devices may be part of HTC’s strategy to right the sinking ship.
