HTC One M8 gets Android 4.4.4 and Eye Experience update
HTC announced the Desire EYE handset and the RE Camera earlier this week. Together with these two devices, the Taiwanese company also uncovered the Eye Experience suite and promised this will hit existing HTC handsets soon. HTC One M8 appears to be the first of the older smartphones to receive this update as it already started to roll out in Europe.
This software update for HTC One M8 weighs 252 MB, and its version number is 3.28.401.6. Since Android 4.4.4 KitKat does not come with any major changes and only consists of minor fixes, the most important part of this HTC One M8 update is the Eye Experience software suite. HTC Eye Experience will bring HTC One M8 users a few interesting features, including voice activated selfies, face detection for video chat, as well as split capture for front and rear cameras.
The update can also be installed manually, since the ZIP file containing it has been already uploaded by XDA members. Next to the HTC One M8, the list of smartphones that should get updated with Eye Experience includes One M7, One E8, One Mini, One Mini 2, Desire 816, Desire 820, One Max, Butterfly 2.
