HTC One is expected to receive Android 4.4 within the next 90 days while a Google Play edition could hit sometime within the next 15.
Jason Mackenzie, president for HTC America, recently confirmed the news in a report from Engadget.
Meanwhile, an HTC One signature feature known as “Sense UI” is expected to remain in HTC’s rollout of KitKat 4.4 while the Google Play edition could nix the Sense UI.
The HTC One smartphone was originally launched earlier this year in March. The device has received both positive critical and commercial receptions.
Android KitKat 4.4 promises a more slimmed down memory footprint, a new Hangouts app and what Google describes as the delivery of a “more immersive Android experience to even more people.”
