HTC has begun rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the One in late January, and now as expected, the One Max is receiving the update.
The release is versioned 2.61.708.1, weighing 431.93MB and limited to the International variant at the moment, but it will start rolling out to other users in coming weeks.
The KitKat update is available via OTA and brings important enhancements and bug fixes.
Here’s the change log:
- Android 4.4.2 update
- Cloud Print Service
- Security enhancements
- New Bluetooth profiles to support more media interactions
- Support of web browser Flash Player removed
To get the OTA update, you need to turn on Wi-Fi, then check for the Android 4.4 update manually, access settings > about phone > software updates.
The availability of the update depends on network operators region-wise, and it may take a few days to be served on all devices.
Meanwhile, the official update to Android 4.4 KitKat is likely to arrive by the end of April. It’s indeed a good news since a few days ago, Sony has officially retired about 12 Xperia smartphones, which will no longer receive any official update. Obviously, it’s a rumor and yet to be confirmed or denied. So we await for further information.
