HTC’s trimmed-down One Mini is all set to make the move to Android 4.4 KitKat. That’s according to US network AT&T, which says the roll-out to devices across The Pond is due to start today.
Punters will also be getting a taste of HTC’s Sense 5.5 software, which sits atop Google’s operating system. The bump follows the larger HTC One’s move to Android 4.4 earlier this year.
HTC drew the ire of customers in January when it revealed that its One X and X+ handsets would not be getting the latest Android software, despite being just over a year old at the time.
With the Taiwanese gadget-maker's new One (M8) now on shelves, customers may be tempted to plump for a new phone altogether.
With HTC’s reputation for hardware enhanced by the new phone, it’ll surely be planning to offer more timely updates in the future if it wants to claw back market share and once again take on Apple and Samsung.
