Sprint officially announced today that their HTC One variant will soon be receiving a minor software update, which is still an Android 4.4.2 KitKat build.
According to the change log posted on Sprint’s website, the new Android 4.4 update for HTC One will arrive with “system stability improvements.” Since most of the new software features were packed in the previous Android 4.4.2 update for Sprint HTC One that was rolled out starting January 31, you shouldn’t be able to notice many changes after you install the new firmware version.
The new software update is labelled 4.06.651.9 and, according to sprint, it will become available for download for all their customers as of March 24.
As soon as the software update will be ready for your Sprint HTC One, you will receive a system update message in the notification area. All you need to do afterwards is tap on the notification, press the “Download” button, wait for the download to finish, then select “Install Now.” Your smartphone will restart and after the boot is complete you will be running 4.06.651.9.
Anyway, Sprint also recommends you to check for the update manually. In order to do so you must head to Settings > System updates > HTC Software update. There’s no mention on the size of the new firmware, but it’s recommended to download it using a stable WiFi connection.
