Even though the Android 4.4 KitKat update is currently being pushed to the Unlocked and Developer Edition HTC One units in the US, you will still have to wait at least a few weeks until the latest Android iteration will hit the carrier variants of the HTC flagship smartphone. In the meantime, the folks at Sprint are rolling out a new software update meant to bring a handful of bug fixes and improvements.
As you’ve probably guessed, we are talking about a minor software update and not about the highly-anticipated HTC One Android 4.4 KitKat update. Labeled 3.05.651.3, the firmware update is now being pushed to the Sprint HTC One owners.
According to the changelog posted on Sprint’s website, the 3.05.651.3 OTA update for Sprint HTC One comes to fix the “No SIM Card” issue that informs the users that 4G LTE is not going to work without the required SIM. Aside form that it also packs a RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication) fix, and improved HD Voice.
As usual, the new software update is being rolled out in stages, so there would be no reason to panic if you didn’t already receive the system update notification. In case you want to check for the 3.05.651.3 OTA update manually, you must grab your HTC One and navigate to Settings > About Phone > System Updates > Check now.
Even though this is not the type of update that will make the users race to grab it on their phones, an update is an update, so it would be nice to know that some of your smartphone’s bugs are being fixed.
