Android Central was first to spot the leak. According to the site, “A pre-release version of Android 4.3 plus HTC Sense 5 has been leaked for the international HTC One. The source of the leak, ROM-maker LlabTooFeR, has released the firmware as a custom ROM -- and says he’ll release the original, untouched firmware on Aug. 28 at 10 a.m. GMT.”
Describing the changes, it says, “The “Maximus HD 12” ROM is based on the unreleased firmware version 3.09.401.1, and while we’re not seeing many significant changes – it’s not finalized yet, after all -- there are a couple worth mentioning. Firstly, it’s now possible to use your own music for video highlight reels, and Sense will sync picture changes to the beat of the track. (This is a feature of the HTC One Mini previously absent from the full-sized version.)
“We’re also seeing a new Task Manager app in the app drawer, alongside a shortcut to the Data Usage pane. The Wifi Hotspot app drawer shortcut is new, too.
“Additionally, we’re noticing slightly smoother animations in this build, along with standard Android 4.3 features like Wifi-based location even when Wifi is turned off.”
