HTC One received a firmware update last week that involved a 230 MB software package, but it seems that the Tatiwan-based company is on the verge of rolling out the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for its flagship smartphone. The last week’s HTC One update brought the firmware version to 1.29.401.12, and, according to GottaBeMobile we should prepare for another update.
We are talking about the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One which will also bring some major improvements. The firmware version of the HTC One will jump from 1.29.x to 2.x and one of the most important changes will probably involve the apps that require a Menu button.
You probably know that on the HTC One running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean a special virtual button appears in the low end of the display. Well, after the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One will be rolled out, the users will no longer have to long press the Back button to open the Menu window, like it is currently happening after the last firmware update.
Rumor has it that the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One will allow the users to integrate new information sources in Blinkfeed, besides Facebook, Flickr, LinkedIn, Twitter, calendar, and others. The TV remote control app will also be improved after the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One rolls out, but the most anticipated new feature is the Quick Settings menu in the Notification Area, which allows you to quickly turn on/off NFC, WiFi, 4G, Bluetooth, set display Brightness and other.
I remind you that HTC One runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Sense UI v5 out of the box and that it packs a 4.7-inch Super LCD3 display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels resulting in a pixel density of 469 ppi. HTC One is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC with four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU, plus 2 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of internal storage.
The HTC One sports a 4 megapixel camera with UltraPixel technology and 1/3” sensor size, 2µm pixel size, simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, face and smile detection, optical image stabilization, and full HD video recording support. The front-facing camera has a 2.1 megapixel sensor capable of recording 1080p@30fps videos.
In terms of connectivity the HTC One comes with all the features worthy of a modern smartphone like all standards of WiFi, 4G LTE, HSPA+, NFC chip, IR blaster, GPS module, Bluetooth 4.0, and microUSB 2.0.
