Android 4.3 for the HTC One Developer Edition has arrived! Several people are also reporting that the update is available for the unlocked US versions as well. The 564MB update simply claims to include Android 4.3 plus Sense 5 enhancements, but users should expect to see 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, quick settings, 6 new Video Highlights themes with custom music options, improved Zoe file management plus all of the standard Android enhancements included with Android 4.3 Those who have not yet received the update can ping HTC’s servers manually by going to Settings > About > Software Updates > Check now.
The download and installation process went smoothly for us, and we’ve noticed a subtle improvement in overall system speed. Now that HTC One Developer Edition has received its Android 4.3 update, Canada variants are next on the list. As soon as that update starts rolling out, we’ll let you know.
