HTC One starts receiving Android 4.4 KitKat update in Europe

On October 31, HTC promised that the update to Android 4.4 KitKat would make it to the One within 90 days. And here we are, exactly one day before that deadline passes, and the Taiwanese company seems to have made good on its promise.

The KitKat update for the HTC One has started rolling out in Europe today. Talk about a close call. Specifically mentioned are those devices sold unlocked in the Nordic region, which for some reason always seem to get updates first. Undoubtedly, a more substantial rollout is set to follow, with more and more countries getting the new software version in due course.


Obviously we’re talking about an over-the-air update here, so if you have an HTC One it will notify you when it’s ready to download and install. If you simply can’t wait, you can try manually checking for the update by going to the software update part of your Settings menu.

The update comes in at 308 MB, and because of the size HTC recommends getting it via Wi-Fi. Aside from the new bits and pieces that KitKat brings, this update also fixes a few bugs, as you can see in the image above. Oh, and the battery icon has turned white, as have all the status bar icons – something which also happened in Samsung’s KitKat updates. After applying this update, you’ll be running software version 4.19.401.8.
