Android 4.4 KitKat Update Coming for HTC One Max in March, One Mini in April

By @binibiningkd on

HTC revealed that the Android 4.4 KitKat for HTC One is coming in March and HTC One Mini in April alongside the promise to update its flagships for two years in its Reddit AMA.

"We already have 4.4 updates in the works for both Mini and Max devices and you can track the progress on our software updates page. You should see this land as early as March for the Max and April for Mini," HTC U.S. Product Team claimed on Reddit.

Although the HTC statement aforementioned only pertains for North American users, HTC users from other regions of the world should get their updates around that time frame as well because we have seen such in previous HTC One updates.

Meanwhile, HTC is rumoured to be releasing a Nexus tablet in 2014 but there have not been any information on the screen size just yet. Now, another report from the Digitimes claimed that HTC might launch the next generation Nexus 10 tablet.

"HTC reportedly will team up with Google again and will jointly launch the next-generation Nexus 10 tablet, according to industry sources," reported by the Digitimes.

However, taking into consideration that Google skipped the Nexus 10 2 launch last year, we must take this rumour with a grain of salt. In fact, if HTC makes a Nexus tablet, it is more likely to be a 7 inches or 8 inches, which are within the screen-size range of the Nexus 7 2013. Also the 10 inches Android tablet has not been the type of reception that Google or any other Android producer might have hoped. On the other hand, the 7 inches models are still selling; therefore, it makes sense that HTC will manufacture the latter.

At this point, nothing is made official by HTC just yet but it is worth noting that in the past, HTC turned down Google's proposal to collaborate in making the Nexus 7 in 2012, which forced Google to work with Asustek Computer for its successful 7 inches tablet.
