As a little late night surprise, Mo Versi, Executive Director of Product Management, took to twitter to announce a KitKat and Sense update for the Sprint variant of the HTC One Max.
Mo has used tweets in the past to keep customers informed of product updates, and it's a trend we'd love to see from all OEMs. As part of HTC's renewed commitment to keeping devices updated for two full years after release, dubbed HTC Advantage, the One Max will see Android's latest version.
Unfortunately, the device's specs will limit Sense to version 5.5, instead of version 6 that will feature on the upcoming HTC One M8, and that is available now for rooted users of the original HTC One.
Regardless, this is great news, as bringing KitKat functionality is an important step to keeping devices relevant. Stay tuned, we'll let you know when the update drops.
