HTC has revealed that its One smartphones will be receiving Android 4.4 KitKat within the next 90 days, at least those in North America. Those with the Google Play edition will see the update much sooner — within 15 days, while those with the developer edition or SIM unlocked phones can expect the latest version of Google’s operating system by the end of next month.

As first reported by Engadget, HTC is one of the first to discuss the rollout of KitKat. At its launch today, Google would only say that it would be available in “the coming weeks.” HTC America president Jason Mackenzie said that his company would be aggressive in the distribution of the operating system to the HTC One.
