HTC One Google Edition vs Sense

Back when Google officially took the wraps off the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat, HTC wasted no time in letting their customers know exactly when they should expect the latest update to hit their flagship HTC One devices. Along with update timing on unlocked and carrier models, HTC promised KitKat would be hitting the HTC One Google Play edition before all the others — within 15 days to be exact. If you’ve been watching your calendar closely (like we have), you’d know that an announcement was imminent.

Today, HTC took to Twitter to once again chime in on their update plans, letting everyone know that their stock version of Android 4.4 KitKat has officially been sent off to Google, where it’s currently waiting to be pushed out to the HTC One GPe. Exact timing is yet to be determined, but owners of the HTC One Google Play edition can rest a little easier knowing it’s now in Google’s hands.
