HTC One M8 ready for Android 4.4.3 KitKat boost, update coming next week

Folks who’ve been waiting for HTC to release the Android 4.4.3 KitKat build for the One M8 will be pleased to know that this update will be going live next week. The company’s VP of management revealed this news via Twitter, while also disclosing a few other details.

Top among them is the fact that although the release is being referred to as Android 4.4.3, it will indeed kick in the security fixes introduced by the 4.4.4 build that was launched immediately after the said update. This means that the next version of Android to hit the handset will most probably be the much awaited L variant.

The main visual attraction of Android 4.4.3 was its dialer, but since HTC has its own app to replace the stock dialer, only the stability and performance fixes from this release will be included in the update. And of course, the company will also take this opportunity to improve its proprietary apps.
