HTC India releases Android 4.4 KitKat for One dual-SIM, One mini and Max

HTC India has announced that Android 4.4 KitKat update is now available for HTC One dual-SIM, One Mini and One Max smartphones the country.  It has already been released for HTC One single-SIM model.

There is no official change-log available but the update is expected to include KitKat specific goodies like immersive mode, cloud-print support, updated version of Hangouts app with SMS & MMS integration as well as improved version of Blinkfeed and performance enhancements.

Update: HTC has revealed a small change-log on its Facebook page, which reveals that the update also includes better multi-tasking, 25GB of free Google Drive storage, and better disk encryption.

If you own any of the above smartphones, you will automatically receive a notification of the update availability, however you can also manually trigger the update by going to Settings << About Phone << Software updates.

It is important to note here that all the updates are released in phases, so not everyone will get the KitKat OTA right-away.

This news is a pleasant surprise as we had very recently heard about KitKat release for One Mini and One Max in March and April in North America and were not expecting the roll-out to begin so-soon in other regions.

With the release of this update, all One-series smartphones released in 2013 have got Android 4.4 and we now expect the company to shift its focus to other smartphones like Butterfly and Desire-series.

If you have already updated your smartphone, do let us know about the experience in comments.

    Yesterday I was seen kitkat update on my phone. Today it’s not there…any timelines for update our phone…. Or I missed it.

  • Dixter

    The update is only 330 mb. Not 700. Also I suppose the 700 mb is the 4.3 update for which you need to soft reset your phone before updating.
