KitKat Coming Soon to the HTC One Google Play Edition
After a wait that seemed like eternity, Android 4.4 KitKat was released 16 days ago, alongside the highly anticipated Google Nexus 5. Not too long afterward, we saw OTAs and factory images appear for some of the more recent Nexus devices.
Unfortunately, the Android 4.4 KitKat updates for the Google Play editions of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4 are still yet to be seen.

Now, it seems as if that time is almost here, as HTC has now submitted the KitKat code to Google for the HTC One Google Play edition. As seen on the official HTC Twitter account:
Good news, we’ve delivered KitKat code to Google for HTC One GPE. Timing of push via PlayStore to be determined by Google.
Are you disappointed that the GPe updates are lagging a bit behind the recently updated Nexus 4, 7, and 10, or are you just happy that these updates are coming relatively expediently? Let us know in the comments section below. Hopefully, it won’t take Google long to push out this update.
