HTC promised that it would be getting the Android 4.4 KitKat update to the Google Play Edition of the HTC One within 15 days of release of the update, and whilst it’s a little late, the company is finally delivering on that promise – with the update now making its way to the device.

It seems fitting that HTC would push out the update at the same time as Samsung, who has released the update for Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition owners, with both devices set to get improved battery life as well as faster performance – thanks to Google’s continued refining of the world’s most popular mobile operating system.

If you’re a HTC One owner with the Sense interface, then you shouldn’t need to wait too much longer, with the update set to arrive in the US and UK in January.
