Android 4.4.3 is headed to the Verizon Wireless HTC One (M8) beginning Wednesday, September 10, according to an HTC executive. While details were light in the initial tweet that announced the incoming update, which will be sent out over the air, one big main feature is headed to HTC’s flagship handset for those wanting to sift out a bit more battery life.
HTC’s Mo Versi has confirmed the update will bring the One (M8) for Verizon up to Android 4.4.3, and with it, owners will get the standard security enhancements behind the scenes along with plenty of bug squashing and general performance improvements. However, the main takeaway from the update is the addition of the Extreme Power Saving mode, which will shut off unnecessary functions and tweak other features to extend out battery life when you need it.
The update may not be Android 4.4.4 KitKat proper, but at least the features tied within this upcoming software update share plenty of similarities to that particular version number.
If you want to check to see if the software update is available for your One (M8) beginning September 10, just head into Settings, Phone Update and then Check for Update.
