U.S. carrier version of HTC One to receive Android 4.4.2 with next month's OTA update
Between tweets from HTC executives and so-called HTC insiders, we have a picture of how the Taiwan based manufacturer is going to handle the remaining Android 4.4 updates for the HTC One. First of all, the HTC One Google Play edition has already received Android 4.4.2. That is after the stock Android model received Android 4.4 back in November. The HTC One unlocked and Developer edition both received Android 4.4, also last month. That update came with Sense 5.5 attached.

HTC is on track to deliver the chocolatey goodness of Android 4.4 KitKat to the U.S. carrier version of the HTC One next month. Even the Verizon branded version of the handset, which just received Android 4.3 earlier this week, is scheduled to be updated next month. And there is more. The U.S. version of the  update will include Sense 5.5. And according to a tweet from HTC's Director of Product Management, Mo Versi, the U.S. update will actually take the HTC One to 4.4.2. That is the latest build available at the moment.

According to HTC Insider LlabTooFeR, European models of the HTC One are also expected to be updated with Android 4.4.2. A tweet he sent out on Wednesday revealed that HTC is testing out Android 4.4.2 with a new version of Sense for the HTC One sequel code named the M8. We could see that phone named the HTC One 2 when unveiled.

HTC insider LLabTooFeR says that the HTC One 2 will come out of the box with Android 4.4.2 installed and a new version of Sense

Some OEMs are being smart now. If you can't outspend Samsung in the marketing and hardware development department. Attack them on the firmware side. Hopefully after being plagued by HTC, Motorola and Sony a bit for this, I hope Samsung will speed up their firmware time frame for their devices.

I'm glad HTC isnt playing around with the updates for the One. I'm kinda excited to get it, but since I've already been experiencing KitKat on my Nexus 7, I know I'm not missing out on too much for now.
