HTC One Google Edition vs Sense

You’ve probably been enjoying Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for only a few weeks now on your HTC One, and it’s crazy that we’re already looking to the next big Android upgrade. As we all heard, Android 4.4 KitKat was announced earlier today and if you’re an HTC One owner you likely have one question on your mind: “When is my HTC One getting it?”

Wouldn’t you know it, HTC was quick to chime in on update plans for their flagship HTC One line. According to HTC, the HTC One Google Play edition can expect the update first, arriving in the next 15 days. Both the HTC One Developer Edition and unlocked models will receive KitKat within the next 30 days, followed by carrier-branded HTC One (those in the US) getting Android 4.4 within 90 days or less. HTC One Max and HTC One Mini? HTC says they’re still figuring out timing on those device, but expect to hear back from them shortly.

Looks like HTC wanted to nip KitKat plans in the bud. You know, before their social outlets were flooded with questions from die-hard Android users frothing at the mouth. Now you can get back to enjoying your phone, and snapping ZOEs of the kiddies on Halloween.
