HTC One Max on Sprint Gets a Taste of KitKat!

March 27, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

For those of you on Sprint, with the HTC One Max, we’ve got some good news for you this morning. It appears that HTC and Sprint are rolling out the Android 4.4.2 update for the HTC One Max. This comes just a day after they began rolling it out for the HTC One Mini on AT&T. This is definitely great timing by HTC, as most other OEMs are stilling rolling out KitKat to their flagships, while HTC has moved on to others that they released in 2013.

For those interested, the build number is 2.09.651.1. It also features some security enhancements in this update as well as cloud printing improvements and new Bluetooth profiles to support more media interactions. The update weighs in at about 343.93MB, so it’s recommended to use WiFi – even Sprint says so in the update screen, even though they have unlimited data for most everyone.

The update does not bring Sense 6 to the HTC One Max, but I’m sure it brings some bug fixes for Sense 5.5 which debuted on the HTC One Max. We should be seeing this update rolling out to everyone now. It’s likely a staged rollout, so we should see it in the next couple of weeks for everyone with the HTC One Max.

I’ve gotta say that HTC has really stepped up their updates in the past year or so. Lately, they’ve been the first to roll out updates, right after Motorola. Although some will argue that Motorola had an unfair advantage there. It’s definitely a welcomed change over the HTC from 2012 and prior. Where we never knew if we’d get an update or not. It’s definitely a move in the right direction I think.

How many of you are on Sprint with the HTC One Max? If you’ve gotten the update, be sure to let us know what you think about it in the comments down below.
