HTC update roadmap leaked, confirms KitKat coming soon for HTC One
HTC insider LlabTooFeR has leaked an HTC roadmap containing its update plans for many of its actively used models. On Thursday, we passed along word from the Taiwan based manufacturer that the Android 4.4 update for the HTC One is now undergoing carrier testing and should receive certification as soon as next week. Once that occurs, the carriers are free to push out the chocolatey update.

This is confirmed by the roadmap which shows the HTC One, HTC One Dual SIM, HTC One mini and HTC One max receiving Android 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5 in late January to mid February. The map also reveals that so far, only the HTC One has been confirmed to receive another update during late summer or autumn. This update will include Sense 6.0, along with what apparently will be the next Android build after 4.4.2.

While the roadmap did confirm the cancellation of Android 4.3 for Verizon's HTC DROID DNA, the phone, along with the HTC Butterfly and HTC Butterfly S, will receive the Android 4.4.2 update in March or April. These phones are presently undergoing testing for the update.

We should also point out that the HTC EVO 4G LTE is undergoing testing for an update to Sense 5.0, and the HTC Desire 601 is being tested for the Android 4.4.2 update that carries Sense 5.5. The roadmap did not provide possible dates for when those two units might be updated.

Of course they promised 4.3 for the DNA and then canceled it.

It was cancelled, and they're going to skip it to go straight to 4.4... I don't see the problem

HTC's new slogan should be "Get The HTC ONE, the only ONE we will ever support future updates on."

True, i doubt even the M8 is going to be as popular as the One has been.

Future updates = next one year, until HTC one 3 (M9) arrives.

They focused too much on the one and forgot about the butterfly. Both the one and butterfly should be receiving the updates at the same time

The one will drift slowly to the curb when newer flag ship is the main focus, and like in past it will be pashaw to expect them to support it further.
It may not be as bad as former flagships drift into obscurity, but the tainted feeling after so many will be there still for me at least.

Can you explain, what does Tegra 3 has to do with the 4.4.2 update?
