North American HTC One models to receive KitKat within 90 days
Since all of the U.S. carrier branded versions of the HTC One have received Android 4.3 save for Verizon, the big question is whether HTC is going to bother getting Android 4.3 worked out for the Verizon version of the phone, or whether it might just wait for the Android 4.4 update to come. On Monday, HTC America president Jason Mackenzie sent out a tweet saying that it would take about a month for the Android 4.3 update to be ready for Big Red's variant of the HTC One. Assuming that everyone's timing is right on, only 20 days after receiving Android 4.3, the Verizon branded version of HTC's Android flagship model will be loaded with Android 4.4.
Will we soon get a tweet from Mr. Mackenzie informing us that HTC has decided to scrap Android 4.3 for Verizon and go directly to KitKat? The executive also said that HTC will also soon announce its update plans for the HTC One mini and HTC One max.
