HTC wasn’t able to keep its promise to update North American versions of the One by the end of September, but hopefully things will go better in Europe. Note that this refers to carrier versions – users of the unlocked international HTC One already got the Android 4.3 bump in September.
UK users, the silver lining of having to wait another month is that you might get bumped directly to Android 4.3 with Sense 5.5, as first seen on the One Max. The update to Sense brings updates to BlinkFeed – RSS feeds, more social feeds, and an on/off toggle – and some minor changes to the Gallery and other parts of the interface. Android 4.3 will enable Bluetooth LE, OpenGL 3.0, and new Daydream functionality, among other under the hood changes.
HTC America’s President Jason Mackenzie said last week that T-Mobile HTC One users should expect the Android 4.3 update (with Sense 5) today, though so far we haven’t heard word of the beginning of the rollout. To check for yourself, you can visit About Phone> Software Update on your HTC One.
