AT&T announced today that it’s now rolling out Android 4.4 KitKat and Sense 5.5 to the HTC One Mini. No, it’s not the latest version of Sense that was introduced yesterday (Sense 6), but at least you’re getting the latest version of Android and plenty of new features that should improve your experience.
AT&T said HTC One Mini users can expect user interface tweaks to the status and navigation bars, the new full-screen immersive mode that was introduced in KitKat, new color emojis and improvements to Bluetooth, power use and security. Other changes include a revised phone dialer application, caller ID that provides local data on an incoming call, revisions to copy/paste, the ability to control music and launch the camera from the lock screen and more. Additionally, HTC BlinkFeed in Sense 5.5 adds the ability to search for new sources and find custom topics.
So far, it looks like HTC is making good on its HTC Advantage promise, a new initiative by the company that makes sure that the One, One Max, One Mini and, now, the One (M8) are all kept to date on the latest software. To get started on making the jump to KitKat, make sure to first back up your device. Then, head to Settings > About Phone > System Updates.
