HTC One Android 4.4 KitKat update due 2014

HTC has revealed the latest Android 4.4 update will be available on the One at the end of January 2014.

"We're working with our local carriers to begin the rollout of Android 4.4 and Sense 5.5 for the #HTCOne from end of January 2014," the Taiwanese company tweeted yesterday.

CNET reports British HTC One owners could receive the update as soon as February as carriers will need to make adjustments accordingly.  

KitKat 4.4 is also expected to hit Nexus 7 and 10 shortly as announced by the Android team last week. Despite a petition which gathered over 18,000 signatures, Galaxy Nexus owners will likely miss out due to Google’s policy which rules out OS updates 18 months after a phone's launch- a strict policy enforced by the company.

Google released the latest version of its hugely popular OS last month, with aims to provide low-footprint software which can run smoothly on lower end phones. It debuted on the Nexus 5 to a predominantly positive reception featuring an enhanced Google Now, improved location services and an overall polished and immersive design.

Fans are now still eagerly awaiting Android 5.0, which is rumoured to be announced mid-2014.
