Fresh from updating the HTC One M7 last week, Verizon is finally getting the HTC One M8 its own Android 4.4.3 update. The update is rolling out OTA (over-the-air) and notifications for updates should start hitting users soon. Verizon says that it plans to roll out the update to all HTC One M8 users by end of week.


As said before, the 4.4.3 bump is mostly made up of security updates for the Android OS – no major changes in the aesthetics and UI. Verizon has confirmed though that Extreme Power Saving Mode will come to the HTC One M8 via this update, so that can be something to get excited about.

Extra battery life is always nice, right? Be warned though that in Extreme Power Saving Mode, users will only get to make and receive calls, as well as send and receive SMS, and little much else. Still, if it means being reachable for a little longer until you have access to a power outlet then it is still a useful feature.

Once the notification reaches you, it should only be a matter of following and agreeing to the prompts for you to get this update. If you want to go ahead and update without the notification, check out the source link. Please note that if you’re running a custom ROM on your HTC One M8, you will not be getting the notification. If you notice anything new apart from Extreme Power Saving Mode on this update, please give us a comment below.
