Sprint HTC One Android 4.3 Jelly Bean already rolling out, AT&T, T-Mobile & Verizon to follow
All HTC One owners in the U.S. will receive the much-awaited Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update by the end of this month, the company has announced.
The Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for the HTC One has been expected for quite some time, but no specific rollout dates were available until now. HTC has finally provided some more detailed information on the update rollout schedule for the four major carriers in the U.S.
According to HTC, Sprint is the first to roll out Android 4.3 to its HTC One customers, while AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon will release the new software by the end of the month.
"HTC One 4.3 updates starting to roll out for @Sprint customers today! Expect @ATT & @TMobile updates by mid-Oct, @Verizon by end of Oct.," HTC announced in a tweet on Wednesday, Oct. 2.
The HTC One is one of the best Android handsets currently available on the market, boasting high-end specs and a stylish, elegant design from premium materials. The smartphone has received high praise and proved to be very popular, but the older Android version was a big issue for many.
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is the latest version of Android that Google launched. The company has since announced the upcoming Android 4.4 KitKat, but has not detailed when that version will start rolling out to devices.
HTC One owners have been waiting for an update to Android 4.3 for a long time, while many who were tempted to purchase the handset were put off by the older OS version.
For those unfamiliar with the latest HTC flagship smartphone, the HTC One sports a 4.7-inch full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and packs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz and Adreno 320 graphics under the hood. The handset also comes with 2GB of RAM to keep things running smoothly and is available in 32GB and 64GB internal storage configurations.
The HTC One also boasts the company's new UltraPixel camera with an f/2.0 lens. According to HTC, its new camera sensor can collect as much as 300 percent more light for higher-quality pictures in low-lit environments. The handset also comes with dual front speakers, Beats Audio, HTC Zoe and plenty of other enticing features.
With the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update confirmed to arrive by the end of the month for U.S. consumers, the HTC One will likely attract even more buyers. Sprint customers should already be rocking the latest version of Android, so let us know in the comments how it fares.
