Good news, guys, it was reported that the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One will start rolling out today. As you probably know, the HTC One comes pre-loaded with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, but as of today the owners of the international HTC One might be able to update their smartphones to the latest Android firmware version. If the rumors are accurate, you should be able to update your HTC One to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right now.
Even thought there aren’t too many details about the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One, it was previously reported that the first users should be able to update their unlocked terminals as of mid June. Moreover, the Ambassador of HTC France, Yves Wi, has posted on Twitter hinting that the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One might roll out today. The same tweet suggests that the firmware update will not bring HTC Sense 5.1 (as it was previously rumored) and that the terminal will stick to Sense 5.0.
It’s not the first time we are hearing that the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean for HTC One is on the verge of rolling out, but it is the first time we are hearing it from an HTC official. Among others, the new firmware update should bring new features like lockscreen widgets and a Quick Settings button in the notifications area which will allow the users to control functions like Brightness, WiFi, Bluetooth, or Mobile Data connections.
Just like it happens with any other firmware updates, the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One will roll out in phases and the owners of the unlocked models will be the first ones to get it.
If you haven’t received the software update notification yet, it’s worth trying to look for it manually. In order to do so grab you HTC One, go to Settings > About Phone > Software Updates and hit the Check for Updates button. Since the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for HTC One might be sized over 150 MB, you might want to have your smartphone connected to a WiFi hotspot.
Just in case you forgot, the HTC One is boasting a 4.7-inch full HD Super LCD3 display with Gorilla Glass 2 protection. The flagship smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 600 chipset with four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU. HTC One also comes with 2 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage, and all the connectivity features worthy of a modern smartphone like all standards of WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC chip, IR blaster, and microUSB 2.0.
While the big players of the smartphone market have chosen to fit 13 megapixel cameras on the back of their flagship devices (see Sony Xperia Z, Samsung Galaxy S4, and LG Optimus G Pro), the Taiwan-based company has integrated a 4 megapixel sensor with UltraPixel technology. The primary camera of the HTC One comes with autofocus, LED flash, full HD video recording support, 1/3” sensor size, 2µm pixel size, simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, face and smile detection, and optical image stabilization.
