Exactly 15 days ago, HTC America President Jason Mackenzie came out and made the promise that the Android 4.4 KitKat update would be coming to the Google Play edition HTC One in 15 days. As you might have noticed from the previous sentence, today is that day.
So, where’s the update? Well, the promise wasn’t exactly fulfilled, but HTC has at least done its part. The HTC USA Twitter account made this statement earlier today:
“Good news, we’ve delivered KitKat code to Google for HTC One GPE. Timing of push via PlayStore to be determined by Google.”
So, it’s on its way. It’s in Google’s hands now, and since Google is looking to get these updates out as soon as possible, 4.4 should theoretically be pushed to the device in a matter of days. This is all speculation, though, of course.
