When it comes to updating old smartphone models with latest versions of Android OS, HTC is pretty much slow. But, it seems like the Taiwanese firm will be rolling out the latest Android v4.4.2 KitKat update along with Sense 5.5 UI and Sense 6.0 UI to a slew of its old smartphone models that were launched last year.
A Twitter user @Flamboyz sheds light on the list of devices that are set to get this update and the tweet reads “HTC SmartPhones Firmware Upgrade List #Leaked.” The list reveals that HTC Desire 610, Desire 816, Butterfly S, One Mini, One Max, One Dual SIM and One will get updated to Android 4.4.2 KitKat topped with Sense 6.0 UI. The other devices mentioned in the list will receive the Android 4.4.2 KitKat and Sense 5.5 UI. Also, the flagship models such as One M7 and One M8 will get updated to Android 4.4.3.
The report also tips that for the models launched in 2012 and 2013 including One X, One X+, One S, One V, One XL and One SV the update is either cancelled or not planned. It is also claimed that these devices will not be upgraded to Android 4.4.3 KitKat with Sense 6.0 UI. Moreover, the Google Play Editions of One M8 and One will get the latest update by June.
