HTC planning Droid DNA, HTC One (US & Cananda) Android 4.3 update rollout for September


A day after learning that the HTC One Developer Edition would be skipping the Android 4.2 update and go straight to Android 4.3, HTC’s president of global sales has now revealed that the company is working to release the same update for the HTC Droid DNA and all HTC One variants in the US and Canada before the end of September. It seems the only thing standing in the way of your HTC One or Droid DNA from receiving the news software is carrier certification.

While HTC has gotten a lot of bad press for not updating its phones in a timely manner, a jump from Android 4.1 to 4.3 only two months after the update was released from Google should help HTC regain some favor among the more devout Android enthusiasts.

    I don’t know if I can count on that Verizon is coming out with the HTC one in couple days with the 4.2.2 already installed. And now we have to wait till end of September if longer? That’s messed up

      None of us have 4.2.2 yet. If you get a ONE in a couple of days you have to wait about a month to get your first update on the phone, thats not that long, get over it. Go outside and get a job or something, find a woman, before you know it, the end of September will be here and you will have your update.

    “HTC Thunderbolt and Incredible 2 to see 4.0 by August 2012″ I wish for their sake they make their own-set deadline….but history would lead elsewhere. I have higher hopes for the One than the DNA.

  • BigCiX

    Here we go…….HTC has already forgot about the One X.

  • romy134

    • the doctor

      Yes. They said they are waiting for career certification. And hope to have that by the end of september

  • thekaz

    ha! HTC will have it ready for the DNA by September, then Verizon will take until January to finish testing it…

    The biggest complaint against Android is timely updates. The first company that really takes updating serious will win market share.

  • donger

    At least HTC is doing better with updates, now if only they can update more phones.
