HTC has been consistently rolling out software updates for the One. The company recently started rolling out the Android 4.3 with Sense 5.5 update for the Intentional variants of the device.
The company has also been very transparent with the end users, informing them of any delay in its roll-out process. Today, the company confirmed to Engadget that it aims to roll out the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Google Play edition of the One within 15 days.
Google Play edition devices are not updated by Google, but by their OEMs itself. A 15 day turnaround time for the KitKat update is not too shabby, in my opinion. However, the impressive part is that the company is expecting to roll out the Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense update for the developer edition of the One within 30 days, while all the North American SKUs (all carrier variants) will get the update within 90 days.
It is truly refreshing to see HTC be so transparent with the end users regarding its update schedule. Hopefully, the company will be able to keep its word and won’t have to delay the KitKat update for any reason whatsoever.
