HTC One M7, M8

Ever since Google began pushing Android 4.4.4 to its Nexus devices. many Android users have been wondering when their device will get the update. Sony was first out of the gate, bumping several Xperia models to 4.4.4 late last week. Now a new leak has revealed that HTC may not be far behind.

According to a document shared by well-know HTC leaker @llabtoofer, HTC is targeting the July-August timeframe for its rollout of Android 4.4.4 to the HTC One (M7) and One (M8). Meanwhile, the dual-SIM One (M8), One Mini 2 and One (E8) are all slated to receive the update in August or September.

What about Android L, you ask? Well HTC has already confirmed its plans to roll the update out to the One (M7) and One (M8) within 90 days of the code’s release. On this leaked doc, both of those devices as well as the rest of HTC’s recent One, Desire and Butterfly releases are listed as “Evaluation, October - December.” The full update doc can be found in the gallery below.

Since HTC has already confirmed its plans to update the One (M7) and One (M8) to Android L, there’s not a ton of exciting new details to be found in this document. The big takeaway is that, if this leak is legit, owners of HTC’s One flagships will get Android 4.4.4 to help keep them occupied until Android L graduates from a developer preview to a public-ready release.

Do you have any of the HTC devices included in this update document?
