HTC One Android 4.4.2 update now available across Asia

HTC One Android 4.4.2 update now available across Asia

Following Verizon’s release of the HTC One Android 4.4.2 update here in the US, we have started to receive random messages that unlocked versions of the HTC One in Asia have started to receive the update. So far we’ve been able to confirm that the update is rolling out to HTC One owners in Malaysia, Indonesia, India and Hong Kong. HTC has not shared an official changelog for the update, but we’re going to assume that the software build comes with the same feature (NFC Tap & Pay, cloud printing, Bluetooth profiles, enhancements to BlinkFeed, Video Highlights, camera improvements, and an updated keyboard ) we’ve already seen on the US and European Android 4.4.2 HTC One builds.

To check if the Android 4.4.2 update is available for your HTC One, go to Settings > Phone Update > Check for Update > Download Now. If you have received the update in a country not listed above, please leave us comment to let us know what country you are in.

  25. shaiban

    fellow htc users,
    I am using htc one dualsim 802w version (Chinese version, shipped with android 4.1.2). this phone does not seem to have an option to check for software updates. I checked with other htc one singlesim phones. they do have an option.
    does it mean that the phone has to be in china to receive update?
    Does a phone have to be in its region to receive updates?
    please help.

        And don’t worry nothing changed after updates only battery icon is white, rest remain same, on the back-end, size of OS reduce to 300MB and services optimized, but not noticeable
