That’s the commitment from Jason Mackenzie, the president of HTC North American HTC wing.

Revealed in an interview with Endgadget, Mackenzie delivered the promise. It seems that on the face of a probable ban in the UK market due to some legal action from Nokia, HTC has targeted the US customers with the lure of the latest Android 4.4 KitKat.

The newly introduced replacement of the Android Jelly Bean 4.3 however has a improved lower-power sensor support and can also manage memory in a better way, helping it to be backed by even a 512MB RAM supported device. Now though the Android KitKat 4.4 operating system will be one of the regular interfaces of HTC One, the device may rather be mainly dominated by Sense UI, HTC’s own interface.

Still for those who want to take the feel of this latest Android OS; 15 days will be the maximum waiting period for the buyers of the Google Play edition. But for the unlocked and developer’s kit phone, the waiting period is bit lengthy at 30 days where else 90 days are for the buyers from the remaining carriers. The 90 days period being the maximum, Mackenzie is pretty firm as he made a point while saying, “We're going to make it a priority to have every dot release out on the One within 90 days", during the interview.
