HTC One Goes Straight For Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Update

Edwin Kee

If you happen to own a HTC One in the US, I am quite sure that you would be interested to hear that the HTC One would be skipping the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update in favor of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, for HTC One models that currently operate on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. There were tweets from HTC's president, Jason Mackenzie, who claimed that users will be skipping Android 4.2.2 since it was considered to be a 'minor update', which was why HTC decided to take the plunge and send the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean train headed for HTC One on US carriers.

It must be said that the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update was introduced to international models more than one month back, but folks over at the US have yet to pick up this particular update, although we have heard of rumors a few weeks back that Verizon’s HTC One had already picked up the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update.

Do take into consideration however, that the HTC One Developer Edition will remain stuck on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but no matter about that, it will still make the jump to Android 4.3 since Android 4.2.2 has been touted to offer "limited customer benefit", with the latter being "so close" already. Are you more than happy that your HTC One is about to get the latest Android update in due time?

    why not Update all devices at the same time, and WHY THE HELL do the US Carriers have "other" devices than the rest???
    and why not make it layered, so the updates of Firmware, manufatcurer modifications (in this case, Sense) and carrier branding (if any) can come independently without disturbing each other???

    Perhaps this is one of the reasons that HTC ain't doing too hot in the market, don't you think so?

    this is NOT an HTC only problem. Samsung has this also, and there it is even worse where you have months between releases for different countries with the SAME intl device,
    WHY do the US Carriers have extra phones which are incompatible with the firmware of the normal ones? This is idiotic and not nice to the devs...
