The wait seems to be over now. Jason Mackenzie, President of HTC America, has hinted the availability of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for HTC by the end of this month.
Good news for all those who have chosen to buy HTC One in recent months. The weekend has come with a first official confirmation on the release date of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for HTC One, the flagship smartphone in the catalog of Taiwanese manufacturer.
Jason Mackenzie, President of HTC America, has confirmed that Android 4.3 will be coming on HTC One by the end of this month, answering a question of a user on Twitter.
In summary, he confirmed the deadlines rumored lately, and the distribution of the update should start within the next few weeks, reaching devices via OTA. All you need to do is — connect your smartphone to the Internet to check and see the availability of the package, launch the download and wait for the end of the installation process.
With Android 4.3 update, HTC One consumers will enjoy the improvements introduced in late July, along with an enhanced version of HTC Sense. He also confirmed that European team “is working on schedule” and will announce the availability of the update soon.
Additionally, yet another confirmation comes with the image below, which shows the blue version of the device, equipped with the latest release of Google’s Android operating system. According to reports, the picture was taken at IFA 2013 event.
Over the year, HTC has been repeatedly criticized for its updates in terms and policies. At the beginning of July, the group announced the suspension of support for the HTC One S model. In effect, the device just after a year from the sale will not receive other official updates. However, for HTC One things are very different obviously, and in all probability, the group will ensure the release of the future updates for the entire next year.
