The HTC One is still lagging behind its biggest rivals in the Android world with regards to the version of the operating system it is currently using. The device was released with the 4.1.2 version of the OS on board with the promise of it being updated shortly after the handset was released, which obviously didn’t happen. We have news today that the HTC One Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update is rolling out in China.
There has previously been some false hope given about the updates release and then talk of it being pulled by the company, but the dual SIM version of the smartphone has recently started to receive the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update with the International version believed to be following shortly.
Serial HTC tipster @LlabTooFeR believes the software will be available for other versions of the handset at anytime, especially as the HTC One Google Edition has recently launched in the US running the later firmware and is expected to get updated to the yet to be announced 4.3 version of Android Jelly Bean soon as well.
The handset has proven pretty popular for the company and should help it start to see bigger sales results returning, and the company has long been rumoured to be readying a mini version of the device in the coming months.
You would have thought though the company would have pushed the update out to the handset a lot quicker than it has to improve its chances of competing even more with its rival’s handsets.
