Unlocked And Developer Edition HTC One (M7) Getting OTA Update With Sense 6 Today

HTC's software versioning is a little more complicated than it is with other Android OEMs. You might have Android 4.4.2, but be lacking many of the features found on a newer device because you have an older version of Sense. HTC can, and does, update these independently. Such is the case with last year's HTC One – some versions of the M7 are getting Sense 6 today to go with their KitKat ROMs.

HTC One M8 Makes Multiple Appearances Sporting A Deep Coat Of Red

The HTC One M8 is a metal phone, so naturally it launched in metallic colors: gunmetal gray, the M7's shade of silver, and some kind of gold. Since then, we've seen leaked shots of the phone in pink and blue. Now our eyes have witnessed it in red.

HTC Makes The One Mini 2 Official: 4.5" Display, Snapdragon 400, 1GB Of RAM, And A Lonely 13MP Camera

HTC took the wraps off the previously leaked One Mini 2 today (stylized as One mini 2), revealing a device that is slightly smaller than its older sibling and substantially more out of shape. With only a Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM, it won't move around pixels nearly as quickly as the device it takes inspiration from. At least with its 4.5-inch 720p display, it won't need to crank out as many, though it's still a stretch to think of a phone this size as small.

Codenames 'Molly' And 'Flounder' Revealed In Android 4.4.3 Changelog, Points To Android TV And HTC-Made Tablet

Just minutes ago we posted about the discovery of an Android 4.4.3 changelog in AOSP and we've already found some interesting information. Among the individual project repositories, there are a few dedicated to Google-supported devices, mostly those in the Nexus family. In particular, we came across new references to an HTC device codenamed "Flounder," and another device belonging to Google with the name "Molly." This is the first time that these names have appeared in AOSP.

Sprint Announces HTC One Max OTA Software Update Enabling Wi-Fi Calling [Update: Sense 6, Too]

Update: Apparently the update should also bump HTC One Max owners up to Sense 6. This may turn out to be quite the OTA.

Wi-Fi calling is great for people who still have plans that don't supply an unlimited number of minutes or during those times when cell reception in a particular location is less than stellar, as it lets customers place phone or send text messages over a Wi-Fi connection instead. Sprint started rolling out the feature to a hyper limited number of devices earlier this year, and now the carrier has announced an OTA upcoming enabling the feature for another somewhat peripheral device, the HTC One Max.

T-Mobile And Sprint Release Oddly Coincidental "Android Security" Updates To One S And Nexus S - Heartbleed Related?

Both Sprint and T-Mobile announced OTA updates for two long-forgotten handsets today stuck on Android 4.1.1 - the Samsung Nexus S and the HTC One S, respectively (that is, the Sprint Nexus S and the T-Mobile One S).

Both updates are described merely as containing security enhancements, but given that Android 4.1.1 is the only known OS version potentially vulnerable to the now-infamous heartbleed exploit, it's fairly easy to determine what this is all about (HTC's site actually confirms as much).

Sprint's HTC EVO LTE Gets A Heartbleed Patch, Android 4.3 Update Is Still Nowhere To Be Seen

Remember the HTC EVO LTE? Sprint does, at least to some degree. The carrier is sending out a small software patch for the phone, reportedly removing a vulnerability from the infamous Heartbleed SSL security bug. Unpatched versions of Android 4.1.1 (and only 4.1.1) are vulnerable to Heartbleed, so EVO LTE owners probably want to get on that right away.

Heartbleed's relationship to Android is a little strange: it affects Android 4.1.1, but not earlier versions of Jelly Bean 4.1, and not later versions of any release, either, so the number of active phones and tablets at risk is comparatively small.
