Android 4.4 KitKat update for HTC One (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile) now in final testing stages

HTC has good news for all those rocking an HTC One purchased via a major US carrier: Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile. The company revealed on Twitter that the “final KitKat software has entered carrier labs for final testing”, and we should “expect certification next week.” Once certification is complete, end users should start receiving the update on their beloved handsets.

The unlocked HTC One, the Developer Edition and the Google Play Edition all received their Android 4.4 KitKat update in late 2013.

As you can see in the image above, the AT&T HTC One Mini, Sprint HTC One Max and Verizon HTC One Max are also going to get KitKat in the near future, although there’s still work to be done there. The KitKat update for Verizon’s Droid DNA is in the certification stages, too. Lastly, another HTC smartphone that will shed its Jelly Bean skin later this year is Virgin Mobile’s Desire 601. We’ll let you know exactly when the updates start rolling out.

They were the first OEM to push the 4.3 and 4.4 update (besides Moto) so that leaves your comment to have zero value.

?? What is that supposed to mean? KitKat has only been out for maybe 3-4 months? Although HTC did drag their feet on the 4.2 update they made up for it in leaps and bounds with 4.3! It was a huge improvement over 4.1!

Kit Kat has only been out for 2 1/2 months. HTC is getting better at updating their flagships.
