Just a quick heads-up for fellow European HTC One M7 users: reports of an Android 4.4.3 update coming to the beloved smartphone have been raising. More specifically, the update is showing up for users in Slovakia and Romania.

The latter country’s HTC Oneversion is said to be a carrier-specific one, which means we are not only dealing with unlocked and off-contract devices. This update brings 2013’s legendary device to software version 6.09.401.5, all packed in a 550 MB file full of goodies. We can expect more Europeans versions of the device to get the update relatively soon.

It may also be important to note this may be the very last update both HTC One iterations get until Android L comes around. HTC has decided to integrate Android 4.4.4 security updates into the older Android 4.4.3 software, making another update unnecessary. Other than security improvements, this OTA update also brings enhancements to certain HTC apps, such as the camera and gallery.

Keep an eye out for any updates! We definitely will.

    From what I read on Mo Versi’s Twitter feed, the US HTC One M7s are going straight to L release. Looks like this will be for the EU and unlocked versions only. Shame because we will be missing out on some security updates from Android 4.4.3/4.4.4. Oh well.
