It looks like there won’t be long until the users of the HTC One will receive the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update, at least according to a tweet belonging to a Russian HTC representative.
The name of the HTC Russia exec is Andrey Kormiltsev, and he claims that the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the HTC One will be released sometime in mid-June. We don’t have so many details, but the software upgrade will be pushed over the air.
Until the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for your HTC One will be available, you can check out what new features it will come with by watching the video below the article. Before doing that, you should know that the smartphone presented in the video runs an unofficial iteration of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean along with HTC’s Sense 5 user interface.
As you can see in the video, the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update will bring lots of improvements and new features on your HTC One including the possibility to set up the battery percentage indicator in the status bar, you will be able to head to quick settings much easier, Daydream, the possibility to map the home key to the menu button, and improvements to BlinkFeed and the application drawer.
This is not the first time we’ve seen the HTC One running Android 4.2.2, as we got to see the first screenshots a couple of days ago.
Of course, if you are not willing to wait until the official Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean updates gets rolled out, you can always head to the xda-developers forum and get your hands on an Android 4.2.2 custom ROM, which is available right away. However, in case you haven’t installed an unofficial ROM before, you should read a few tutorials first because it can be really tricky. Also, it’s always recommended to backup your data before you start just in case something goes wrong, not matter how experienced you are with this kind of things.
