HTC is starting to update the HTC One M8 to KitKat version 4.4.3. It was first made available for developer versions of the phone.
The update file is available for both the developer edition (M8_UL_CA) and the SIM unlocked edition (M8_UL) of the One M8.
It might be hard to find the unlocked edition of the update as an over the air download, but someone has already made the file available online as a downloadable zip file.
An HTC vice president let customers know that the update was coming on Twitter. He also said that the next major update available would be for the Android L.
The Android L isn't expected until sometime in early 2015. This update will make HTC devices up to the newest and latest standards.
To check if the update is available for your HTC One M8 go to Settings>> About phone>> Software update>> Check now.
The HTC One M7 will not receive this update. It will go update right to Android L software when it comes out.
New Windows Phone Coming?
Rumors are suggesting that HTC is thinking of using the same design as the HTC One M8 and making it a Windows Phone model instead of Android.
The phone could be called the HTC One (W8) and Verizon might be releasing it by the end of September.
It will look just like the HTC One (M8) except it might be based on an unannounced model called the A9. The A9 phone is said to be a high-end phone but at a mid-range pricepoint.
WinRumors founder Tom Warren tweeted that a Windwos Phone 8.1 version of the HTC One (M8) was coming:
Oh and HTC is working on a Windows Phone version of the One. Should be out later this year http://t.co/UBYcON6Fgj
