HTC is going fully transparent in their latest infograph explaining the entire process that goes into updating their devices to the latest version of Android. Devices are broken down into 3 main categories: carrier devices, unlocked/developer editions, and Google Play editions.
In the infograph, it’s easy to follow all the individual stages of development, starting from when Google first provides the source code to the eventual OTA update that gets pushed out to customers’ devices. Besides being fun to look at, we found it extremely interesting to see all the behind the scenes work that goes into updating the Android OS on these devices. They even created a new landing page for interested parties to visit and see the current status of Android 4.4 KitKat on their favorite HTC devices.
HTC must be delegating a lot of manpower to getting these updates out and for them to be one of the first OEMs out the gate with Android 4.4 KitKat on the HTC One, well, it’s definitely commendable. Full info graphic below.
