HTC Desire 601 Android 4.4, Sense 5.5 update rollout commences
Following yesterday’s release of Android 4.4 for the HTC Droid DNA, HTC Singapore has announced that the Android 4.4.2, Sense 5.5 update is now available for the HTC Desire 601 as well. Since Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) is optimized to be more efficient on lower-end handsets, the Desire 601 should see a bit of a performance boost along with new Bluetooth profile and a few other system tweaks. While getting a new version of Android is always nice, most of the update’s new features come bundled in the Sense 5.5 update. After the update is installed, HTC Desire 601 users will be treated to a new version of BlinkFeed, redesigned Gallery and Music apps and tweaks to lock screen widgets.
The Android 4.4.2, Sense 5.5 update for the HTC desire 601 is currently being pushed to handsets in Singapore, but owners of the phone in other regions should also see the update hit their devices in the coming weeks. We also expect the Virgin Mobile HTC Desire to receive the update sometime this summer. HTC could always improve it’s turnaround time on its software updates, but it’s encouraging to see that HTC is working hard to bring the latest version of Android and newer Sense 5.5 features to its mid-range Desire lineup.
