You know what would make a good breakfast? A KitKat bar. That’s precisely what the HTC One Google Play edition and its owners are getting today, as it appears that the GPe-flavored One has started receiving its official bump to Android 4.4. One XDA-developers forum member has already received the over the air update, which weighs in at 305.4MB, and the OTA download link for the new software has already been discovered and shared for anyone that’s into that whole sideloading thing. Additionally, HTC has posted the source code for the update to its HTCDev site.

Upon installation, HTC One Google Play edition owners will find themselves on build KRT16S with some new goodies to play with, including an enhanced phone dialer with Google’s caller ID feature as well as some general performance improvements. Because these updates typically go out in phases, it may take a little time for the HTC One GPe’s over the air KitKat update to make its way to your neck of the woods. The good news is that at least now you know that you’ve got some new software candy to sink your teeth into.
