AT&T HTC One M8 update officially set to roll out early next week
The HTC One M8 on AT&T will finally get an update next week but it's to Android 4.4.4 KitKat, not the latest Lollipop treat.
The news comes after AT&T jumped the gun a few days ago and released the update prematurely, only to pull it afterwards. HTC explained at the time that the update had been released by mistake, which is why it was only briefly available. Up until now, neither HTC nor AT&T gave an exact date for when the update would resume rolling out.
HTC One M8 owners on AT&T are now in for some good news, as we finally know for sure when the update will start rolling out again. As previously mentioned, the handset will not get a taste of Android Lollipop just yet, but the new firmware will nonetheless bring some goodies to the table.
The news comes from HTC's own Mo Versi, who officially announced on his Twitter account that the update for the AT&T HTC One M8 has received technical approvval (TA) and is ready to start rolling out soon.
"We just received TA on 4.4.4 for AT&T M8. Will include VoLTE and the HTC Eye SW experience. OTA to start early next week," tweeted Mo Versi.
When AT&T released the OTA prematurely a few days ago, the update did not include the much-touted HTC Eye experience. That was obviously an error, and the software will be a part of the package when the update resumes its rollout.
As a reminder, the HTC Eye experience software aims to improve the camera capabilities of the device, while also adding a number of neat new features such as Face Fusion, Split Capture, Screen Share, Face Tracking, and others.
The update should start rolling out in a day or two for the AT&T HTC One M8, but may take a while to reach all devices. Over-the-air (OTA) updates are always gradual, so a little patience is necessary for those who don't get it right away.
The HTC One M8 is also expected to receive an update to the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop sometime in the near future, but no rollout schedule is officially available for the handset just yet. We'll keep you up to date as soon as more information surfaces, so stay tuned. In the meantime, drop by our comment section below when you get the new update to Android 4.4.4 KitKat and let us know how it fares.
