HTC One and HTC One mini owners in Canada will soon be served up a KitKat flavored software update for their devices. Six Canadian service providers (Bell, Rogers TELUS, Virgin Mobile, Wind and SaskTel) are now working to certify the latest Android 4.4 build for the HTC One. The Rogers has also begun certification of the Android 4.4 update for the HTC One mini.
Since the Canadian service providers started testing the Android 4.4 update for the HTC One at roughly the same time US service providers did, we expect the KitKat certification testing will wrap up sometime within the next week or two, followed by a staggered OTA roll-out. HTC has made it very clear that its flagship HTC One will be getting Android 4.4 before any of its other devices, so Rogers may have to sit on the HTC One mini update, but we hope that’s not the case. Android 4.4 update for the Canadian HTC One and One mini should be accompanied by HTC Sense 5.5 which is packed with dozens of new features, bug fixes and enhancement to BlinkFeed and Video Highlights. We will share complete change logs for both devices once the updates are certified and pushed out to HTC’s customers in Canada.
