Apparently 'shortly' was more like 'immediately' for this update
Coming just hours after HTC announced that the KitKat update for Verizon HTC Ones was on the way "shortly," folks have already started seeing the update notification on their phones. The whopping 617MB update brings the HTC One up to Android 4.4 with Sense 5.5, which brings a nice set of tweaks and improvements.
After the update you'll notice small visual changes to the way BlinkFeed works, as well as redesigns in the settings, Gallery, Music app and lockscreen. You'll also receive the improvements in KitKat, including Immersive Mode and other behind-the-scenes features. There are also a few Verizon device-specific changes here, including improvements to low light photography and power management.
If you weren't already hitting "check now" in the settings on your Verizon HTC One, you really should now.
