HTC One has been the most popular smartphones of the year after Samsung Galaxy S4. Truly, the HTC One has helped in resurrecting the HTC brand. Out of nowhere the HTC One has turned into a competitive brand. HTC One has been so successful that the Taiwanese giant is considering the launch of HTC variants like HTC One Mini and HTC One Max.
The Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update was officially announced in the month of July. Still many of the leading smartphones including the HTC One are yet to receive the update. In August, HTC’s President Jason Mackenzie had addressed to HTC One and HTC Droid DNA users in US that instead of rolling out Android 4.2 update for their handsets, they will be offering Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update in the month of September. So, the time has come to fulfill the promise.
Now September will be coming to an end soon but it seems HTC will be offering the Android 4.3 update for the said handsets sooner. Quite contrary to before, the Taiwanese tech giant has been quite fast in releasing updates this year. The HTC One X+ and the HTC One X have been updated with Android 4.2 and HTC Sense 5. Also, the company has also offered Android 4.2 update for HTC One. Even the HTC Butterfly has received Android 4.2 update along with the new HTC Sense 5.
The update that we spoke above was for HTC devices that are launched outside US. Hence, HTC has promised to roll out the said updates for HTC One and Droid DNA very soon. HTC Droid DNA is the US version of HTC Butterfly. It was through Twitter that HTC President had promised that they will be offering Android 4.3 update for HTC One and Android 4.3 with HTC Sense 5 for HTC Droid DNA.
When someone questioned HTC President on Twitter that will the Android 4.3 update for HTC One will be out by the end of Sept, Mackenzie answered that he will be sending detailed information about the update at the start of the following week for all the SKUs. This means users using HTC One on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile are likely to get concrete information in the coming week.
As mentioned before, the Droid DNA will be getting Android 4.2 with HTC Sense 5. However, when someone questioned whether the chances of updating Droid DNA with Android 4.3, Mackenzie only responded ‘good’ and did not elaborate on it. So, at least we can expect that the Droid DNA is going to get the Android 4.3. However, we feel that it may not happen very soon.
We hope that at least the best ever smartphone from the Taiwanese tech giant, the HTC One does get the much needed update. It is only in the coming week that we will be able to get more information for you. Well, we all know that Android 4.4 KitKat is going to arrive soon. We hope that HTC One and other popular phones do get the Android 4.4 update within this year.
