The HTC One Android 4.4 update is apparently rolling out as an Over The Air(OTA) update to Telstra Handsets right now. The update, firmware version 4.20.980.1 is nearly 308MB in size and brings about new features as well as bug fixes.
The update brings the HTC One up to Android 4.4.2, with Sense 5.5 on-board, the update includes Cloud Print Services, Security Enhancements and New Bluetooth profiles. Presumably this update also includes the fix for the WiFi bug which caused the Android 4.4 update to be halted in the UK a few weeks ago, and which has only just re-commenced rolling out to handsets tonight, although their handsets are receiving firmware version 188.8.131.52.
The other carriers in Australia all carrier the HTC One and a quick look at their respective Software update pages indicates that their Android 4.4 updates won’t be too far behind. Optus advised on their page on the 7th of March that ‘We’ve approved this version. Expected public release: Mid March’. Vodafone has listed the 4.4 update for the HTC One as ‘Testing complete. Awaiting FOTA dates’ with the bonus of the HTC One Mini Android 4.4 update receiving the same status.
If you have an unlocked HTC One, the update for your handset should be well and truly received. So, it’s down to the carriers, let us know in the comments if you’ve received the Android 4.4 update on your HTC One and which carrier you purchased your phone through.
UPDATE: Looks like Vodafone and Optus customers are also receiving their update – thanks Chris and Lyle.
