After HTC’s Executive Director of Product Management announced via Twitter that the AT&T HTC One Mini will get the Android 4.4 KitKat update by the end of the week, the US carrier has officially revealed on its website that the new firmware is now being pushed to users.
As usual, the AT&T HTC One Mini Android 4.4 KitKat OTA update is being rolled out in phases, meaning that some of you might not be able to download and install the new firmware right away. The update is labeled 3.10.502.3 and because it weighs 658 MB, you will be able do download via WiFi-only.
According to the changelog posted on AT&T’s website, the Android 4.4.2 update for HTC One Mini will bring the usual KitKat stuff such as transparent status and navigation bars, emoji support, full-screen album art in lock screen, immersive mode, improved security, or smart power use, along with the ability to look up contacts directly from the dial pad, improved HTC BlinkFeed app, new copy – paste options, enhanced interface for the E-mail app, camera app shortcut in lock screen, and new clock interface for the clock app.
Usually when a software update is available for your device you receive a notification message, but you can also check for it manually under Settings > About Phone > System Updates > Download. After you enable your WiFi (if not already enabled) the update files will be download on your smartphone. Hit install, wait until the device reboots, and voila. You’re now running Android 4.4.2 KitKat on your HTC One Mini. Oh, and AT&T advises you to have at least a 50 percent charged battery.
