HTC: Android 4.3 rollout for HTC One to commence this week


The title says it all. Jason Mackenzie, President of HTC America took to Twitter this afternoon, announcing that the HTC One will start to receive the Android 4.3 update starting this week. Since service providers still need to sign off before the update is pushed to carrier branded phones, specific dates have not been given. What we do know is that the HTC One Developer Edition will receive the update this week, while One owners in Canada will see the update by the end of September. Jason Mackenzie sent out another tweet, claiming optimism that U.S. carriers will certify the update soon. No information was given regarding the European rollout of the HTC One’s Android 4.3 update.

Unfortunately, it looks like the HTC Droid DNA will not be getting the Android 4.3 update as originally promised. Jason Mackenzie sent out a clarification tweet, stating the Droid DNA would be getting all of the Sense 5 features with an Android 4.2.2 update which will hit sometime before the end of this year.

If you own the HTC One and live in North America, we suggest keeping a close eye on your phone for your Android 4.3 update. We can’t wait to see what new features HTC has in store with the Android 4.3 update and a new build of Sense. As soon as the update hits, we’ll let you know.
