AT&T To Roll Out KitKat Update For The HTC One Mini In The Next Couple Of Days
HTC’s Executive Director of Product Management took to Twitter earlier today to announce that the AT&T-branded variant of the One Mini, is expected to receive the much-anticipated KitKat update by the end of this week. The upgrade will bring the latest build of Android 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5 to the handset, in addition to the usual multitude of bug fixes and stability improvements.

The One Mini is essentially a scaled-down version of HTC’s flagship smartphone of 2013, the One, which packs a stunning 4.3-inch 720p HD display, a 1.4GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (not expandable), an Adreno 305 GPU, a 4-megapixel “Ultrapixel” rear-facing camera and a measly 1,800 mAh non-removable battery.
Android 4.4.2 is a considerable upgrade from 4.3, packing a completely redesigned user interface, SMS message integration in the standard Hangouts application, Google Now on the home screen, Wi-Fi printing capabilities for HP ePrinters and Google Print customers, autocomplete for the traditional telephone dialer, Emoji integration for Google Keyboard, built-in word processing software and lots more.
Be sure to check back as we’ll let you know as soon as the update starts rolling out.
