android-kitkatJust like all of the other updates for older smartphones, they see their fair share of delays and the Android 4.4.2 KitKat software was not any different for the Droid DNA from HTC.  Now that all of the delays have finally been put to rest, it has been confirmed that users will be seeing the update by the end of this week.  HTC had promised this update before the end of March, but as you can clearly see, that was not the case.  HTC has been in that position before and known exactly how to handle it.

Since the update was not met in March, the company worked hard to ensure that it would be ready before the end of April.  Since most of the recent attention has been on the HTC One (M8), the company has had it easy, but now those that have the Droid DNA were still wondering before this week came along.  The Droid DNA was not included on the short list of devices to get the HTC Sense 6 user interface, but users could deal with that as long as they were updated to the Android 4.4.2 KitKat at some point.

According to a tweet from HTC USA, the Droid DNA Android update will arrive by the end of this week or next at the latest.  The update is rolled out in phases to avoid major issues and that is why it might take up to 10 days before you see any notification of the new software.  The company confirmed that it is still ironing out the details with Verizon Wireless, but the process is in the end stages.  Starting on the 24th, the update will roll out and it should be going throughout the weekend according to the product manager for HTC, Mo Versi.

According to the latest tweet from Versi, the update will also have the Sense 5.5 user interface coming along with it.  Even though the phone will not be upgraded to the latest UI, it is nice that it will see an upgrade to version 5.5.  This week the company confirmed that it will be upgrading all of the “One” devices with Sense 6 at some point in May or June.  Unfortunately, the Droid DNA was not on the list for that update.  Currently the Droid DNA has Jelly Bean software so the update will be a welcomed one.
