HTC: Sprint to release HTC One Android 4.3 update today


It may be a few days later than originally promised, but HTC’s Jason Mackenzie has just announced that the Android 4.3 update for the Sprint HTC One will be pushed out today. The update should include Android 4.3 plus launcher bar enhancements, new BlinkFeed features, a widget lock screen style, home button behavior modification (remove black menu bar from screen), ability to display battery level percentage in the notification bar, advanced notifications, quick settings, 6 new Video Highlights themes with custom music options, improved Zoe file management and all the standard Android enhancements included with Android 4.3.

We’re not sure when the Sprint HTC One Android 4.3 update push will begin, but you can always try to ping HTC’s servers manually by going to Settings > About > Software Updates > Check now on your HTC One.

What new Android 4.3 features and Sense enhancements are you looking forward to on your Sprint HTC One?

    Hooray !! T-Mobile cant be far behind !! To all the people hating on HTC for not pushing out the updates on time, eat your words. We all knew the carriers were holding it up, but apparently not by much. Its 4.3 time !

    • Jake

      This is truly a rare occurrence for HTC. I hope this is a sign of things to come.

      • Dad

        I think it just made the phone worse

  • Travis Minnich

    I might of found a minor bug in 4.3 already. when you change the home button gestures to “Swipe up for Google Now or Press and hold for menu” when your on the home screen and you hold for menu the screen locks up for a sec and wont let you swipe your home screen pages. Don’t think its that big of a issue. was just noting it. lol

    • Michael

      What does “might of” mean? Is that the same as “might have”? I’m just curious, because I’m not having the problem you describe, but I’m not familiar with the meaning of “might of”.

  • topher

    hell yes! texas here as well and downloading now.

  • Sam

    I just updated but now I can’t update any of my apps on the play store but everything else seems fine

    • Ron

      I also cannot update any apps and I did all of the usual fixes (clearing data on Google Play, Services and removing and re-adding my Google Account) to no avail. Any suggestions would be helpful!

      • smoke

        You have to factory reset to fix the play store that’s what I did and 4.3 is sweet and faster

  • smoke

    Pull down toggles are cool but didn’t fix the purple cam

  • wtstouffer3

    Cincy Ohio got it! Now I have nothing to check on, follow, or read about daily….oh wait…kitkat is coming! I’ll have a new phone by then I’m sure.

    Omaha Nebraska. What’s this new icon in notifications that looks like a big “N”?

    • justin

      Anybody aware of any great roms running 4.3 compatible for sprint yet?

    • JW

      I noticed this too! In case you haven’t found it yet, it is the NFC application that allows you to exchange data when the phone touches another device. Go to Settings>…More> then disable the setting for NFC…

      • Anne

        Thank you JW!

      • Shells

        I had no idea and for 3 weeks now i’ve noticed that my battery would drain a little fast and was wondering if that icon had something to do with it. Thank you very much. Does that mean information could have been shared from my phone without my knowledge?

  • Sam

  • Dave

    DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!! Since I downloaded the update, my phone battery only last a few hours. Also, my phone gets extremely hot! Also, my apps are not running correctly and they constantly force close. It’s crap!
