HTC is now distributing Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean for the single-SIM variant of its HTC One smartphone. This new update has been initially pushed onto the dual-SIM HTC One platforms, but now it is also serving the users of the international model of HTC One in Taiwan.
The change-log for HTC One update does not appear different from the dual-SIM version. This update brings notable enhancements that include change in the launcher bar, addition of lock screen-style widget, bug fixes and many more.
Alongside Jelly Bean, the owners of HTC One will get new AE/AF lock enhancements in the camera/gallery for exposure or focus on the viewfinder screen, Quick Settings that can be easily implemented by a new touch gesture, rearrangement of the widget panel, new Lock Screen style widget, enhanced behavior of the Home button and launcher bar enhancement. Furthermore, the update shows the battery level in the status bar.
According to users who have already received the update, the smartphone got a decent performance boost after being updated. It should be noted here that this update has killed the black bar which posed issues to many consumers.
As usual, the update is being distributed gradually to the HTC One owners. There are possibilities that users might not be able to update their smartphone to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right away. Don’t worry, the update will arrive to your country or network provider soon.
The update is available over-the-air and hence HTC will notify you once the update reaches your smartphone. However, you can manually check for it in Settings -> About Phone -> Software Update if you are very keen to get updated.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any details about the upcoming of the carrier versions of the update, but we hope to have some reliable info soon in the near future.
