Original HTC Butterfly Confirmed to Get Android 4.4 KitKat

Last month we have heard several rumors about an Android 4.4 KitKat update for both the original HTC Butterfly (2012) and the more recent Butterfly S (2013). In the meantime, we have all seen HTC’s Butterfly S enjoying the taste of KitKat, but what about the Butterfly? We have great news for owners of the HTC Butterfly all over the world. We bet that you are going to be excited about the confirmation of an upcoming Android 4.4 KitKat update for your handset. HTC has offered us this information via Facebook in an answer to a concerned owner of the original Butterfly smartphone asking about the possibility of receiving the update or not.

And although HTC didn’t mentioned a thing about when exactly the Android 4.4 KitKat rollout would start, the previous leaks that we have told you about have pointed to March-April. As March is already over, then we can only imagine that this will happen this month.

HTC’s Butterfly Android KitKat

HTC won’t have any problems when it comes to updating its Butterfly to Android KitKat. Despite of the fact that the device was released two years ago, it gets the power from a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 processor coming along with an Adreno 320 graphics processor and 2 GB RAM, while its 5.0-inches screen display has a maximum 1080 x 1920 resolution. And just imagine all these combined with KitKat’s goodies: transparent notifications bar, simpler white icons, cloud print support, default SMS/MMS application, not to mention that the user interface will be also updated from HTC Sense 5.0 to the more recent Sense 5.5.

Owners of the original HTC Butterfly handset should stay tuned as long as we are going to come back soon with more details regarding the Android KitKat update.
