Now that the HTC One smartphone has been treated to Android 4.4 KitKat across the globe, the company is focusing on bringing the latest version of Google’s mobile OS to its Butterfly S. The update is reportedly rolling out worldwide and it’s being delivered over the air.
The Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the HTC Butterfly S was spotted over at XDA Developers and was also made known by Twitter user @LlabTooFeR. Based on the details provided, the new firmware goes by the version number 3.06.708.3a and it is 737MB in size, making it one massive update. A changelog has also been provided, but doesn’t highlight much of the new features. Apart from the latest OS, there are many enhancements and bug fixed onboard.
The overall security has been augmented and the company has added support for Cloud Print services. Also, the HTC Butterfly S will sport new Bluetooth profiles with the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update. For those who rely on the demised Flash player, the company has dropped support for it on the default web browser. You should automatically receive a notification of the update on your smartphone when it’s available in your location. Or, you could manually search for it through the Software Upgrade menu under Settings.
If you can’t wait to get the update, a flashable ZIP of the OTA is available through XDA Developers.
