Verizon HTC One (M7) Gets Android 4.4.3 This Week, Includes Extreme Power Saving Mode

According to HTC’s Mo Versi, the One (M7) on Verizon is scheduled to receive Android 4.4.3 this week, along with Extreme Power Saving Mode. I can’t help but wonder if he actually meant the HTC One (M8), but he has yet to correct the Tweet. We will just have to go with it. 

I bring that up because the One (M8) for Verizon was supposed to get Android 4.4.3 in the middle of August, but HTC said it had been delayed until September. Seems odd that the original One would see the update first, but hey, it’s happened before…maybe.

The update plugs security holes, optimizes all sorts of goodies, and again, brings Extreme Power Saving Mode, a feature that can extend the life of your almost-drained-battery for hours. Check out the update list for AT&T’s One (M8) here.

    Downloaded and installed. On bootup it now says “powered by android” instead of beats. I guess they finally had to take it out hahaha

      Guess I’ll hold off rooting my replacement M8 I get on Friday until after the update then, assuming it’ll still root.

    Absolutely loved this device when I had it.

      Still the best HTC phone ever made.

    The M8 is capable of VoLTE so VZW will roll out 4.4.3 when they launch VoLTE.

    • Julian

      Actually the only VoLTE drives will initially be the Samsung galaxy s5 and LG G2..

      • ndog21

        I’m sure the M8 will be included as well I found this in the Verizon M8’s default.xml file.

        • Allyn K C

          Verizon has many devices capable of VoLTE; but according to information last week, Verizon will initially only make it available on the S5 and the LG G2, with the other devices activated later.
