Sprint releases HTC One Android 4.4.2 update
The long wait for the HTC One’s KitKat update in the U.S. is finally over. Sprint has completed its certification of the update and it now pushing it out to handsets across the country. Sprint is the first U.S. service provider to release the Android 4.4.2 update for the HTC One -one day after HTC’s self-imposed deadline for the release. Many were disappointed when HTC announced that the update release deadline would not be met, but the fact that Sprint has released the update so soon is very encouraging. We wouldn’t be surprised if T-Mobile, AT&T or Verizon completed their certification testing and pushed out the update to their customers within the next two or three days.
Owners of the Sprint HTC One in Canada will get feature like NFC Tap & Pay, cloud printing, Bluetooth profiles from Android 4.4.2 along with minor bug fixes and security enhancements. But the real improvements are tucked in HTC Sense 5.5 which features enhancements to BlinkFeed, Video Highlights, camera improvements, and keyboard which now includes hundreds of emoji. If you have not yet received an update notification on your Canadian, go to Settings > About Phone > Software update > Check now to manually ping the update servers.
