I guess you can say that it has been a long time in coming for the flagship model of Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC, the HTC One, to be on the receiving end of the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. After all, what is the point of owning a flagship model, if it lags behind its competitors in terms of firmware and software updates, especially when the operating system is concerned? The latest word on the street points to a July release for this Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update
Of course, the folks over at HTC themselves have pretty much remained mum on the situation, so we will just have to take the July claims with a pinch of salt at the moment. Still, as the saying goes, there is no smoke without fire, so it seems that the July release date for the firmware update came about after Three stated on Twitter that HTC has "pulled" back its HTC One Android 4.2.2 update just last week, before the folks over at Engadget confirmed that Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean for the HTC One is still on track, albeit without a specific release date, although we did talk about a mid-June release earlier this month, which definitely has passed with no Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean in sight.
According to the folks over at Android Revolution, the new Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system update will continue to work hand in hand with HTC One's Sense 5.0 user interface, while bringing its fair share of changes and updates along the way. If the update has been pulled by HTC, perhaps they are ironing out some of the smaller and newly discovered bugs, as there is no point in rolling out a gimped update, or even worse, one that bricks your handset. Regardless, a July release date could be on the horizon if your HTC One is itching for some Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean action.
