This will make Verizon the second of the four major U.S. carriers to update the HTC One to Android 4.4, after Sprint. Originally, HTC put a self-imposed 90 day deadline on the update with the countdown starting on Halloween. But HTC Americas president Jason Mackenzie said that HTC was running one to two weeks late.
A leaked HTC update roadmap showed that the HTC One would receive the Android 4.4 update + Sense 5.5 as late as the middle of this month. Based on that schedule, the Verizon update will take place on time.
