Verizon HTC One Max to Receive Android 4.4.2 + Sense 5.5 on Monday!

The  is the bigger brother to last year’s flagship HTC One. Although it’s been a bit slower to receive the KitKat than its more reasonably sized sibling, we’ve already seen the update roll out to the European and Sprint versions of the device. Unfortunately, however, this does nothing for device owners in different regions and/or on different carriers such as Verizon here in the US, which typically lags behind its competitors when it comes to updates.

Now, we’ve gotten word that the update to Android 4.4.2 + Sense 5.5 has received technical approval for OTA release on Verizon. News on the update comes from HTC’s executive director of product management @moversi, who posted about the update to his Twitter account earlier today.

While this statement comes a full week after we saw the update roll out to the Sprint model, this is still great news for Verizon HTC One Max owners looking to receive the official KitKat goods. Are you looking forward to the update on your Verizon HTC One Max, or are you already running an aftermarket KitKat build for your device? Let us know in the comments below, and of course visit our  forums.
