The flagship smartphone of the Taiwanese company was launched with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on board, so every user that purchased the terminal is now expecting the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One to roll out. Still a recent Three UK tweet gave them some reasons to worry as they mentioned that the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One has been pulled.
Personally, I don’t believe that the HTC One, which is one of the best Android smartphones out there, will be left behind when it comes to the latest Android firmware updates. Even though the HTC One will definitely be updated to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, for the time being there are no details regarding the release date of the firmware update.
If you were among the users worrying that the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update will not hit the HTC One, we have great news for you. An HTC official has confirmed for the guys at Engaget that the firmware update for the flagship device of the Taiwanese phone maker will be delivered. Even though he didn’t mention the exact release date of the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One, the HTC official said that the owners will have to be patient. According to Engaget, the “users may need to wait a little longer before it becomes available.”
The HTC One is one of the best selling Android smartphones of the moment, reports indicating that the Taiwan-based company has already shipped 5 million units. As I was mentioning above, the HTC One is running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, of course, customized with the company’s proprietary user interface, dubbed Sense 5.
As usual, the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update will be rolled out in phases,
Even though it was previously rumored that the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One will come with a new version of Sense, the latest reports claim that the new update will not change the interface.
Of course, the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One will bring some specific features like battery percentage, Daydream, improved notifications area, Quick Settings (which allows you to quickly control functions like Bluetooth, WiFi, NFC, etc.).
The HTC One is sporting a 4.7-inch Super LCD3 display with full HD resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection, plus 2 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage, and a powerful processor. We are talking about the Snapdragon 600 chipset developed by Qualcomm and based on four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU.
In terms of connectivity the HTC One brings all the feature worthy of a modern smartphone: all standards of WiFi, HSPA+ and 4G LTE, NFC chip, IR port, Bluetooth 4.0, and microUSB 2.0.
The HTC One also comes with an impressive 4 megapixel camera with UltraPixel technology, plus autofocus, LED flash, 1/3” sensor size, 2µm pixel size, simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, face and smile detection, optical image stabilization, and support for recording 1080p@30fps videos.
