The HTC One recently received an update to Android 4.2.2 Jellybean, for unlocked models. The latest currently available version of the Google-owned operating system sees plenty of welcome new features bought to the popular device, replacing the phone’s default Android 4.1 Jellybean OS.
Of course, those who own the device as part of pay monthly
contracts have been eagerly anticipating the update, and GSM Arena has finally
reported that the update can now be downloaded onto HTC One handsets in the UK,
Ireland and Spain. A whole host of additional features will be bought to the
phone as part of the update, along with the usual performance optimisations and
bug fixes. Full list of HTC One specifications is on our website.
While the HTC One is by far one of the most feature rich
devices on the market, plenty of additional features are bought to the phone as
part of the update. This is demonstrated by the ample 416.5MB size of the
download. Among the changes listed in the official changelog are launcher bar
enhancement, new lock screen style widget, widget panel rearrangement, 12 new
default settings on the quick settings panel, the status bar now displays the
remaining battery percentage, and the home button offers enhanced
functionality, such as the ability to display the options menu and quickly
access the Google Now application. Several default Android 4.2.2 features will
also be bought to the phone, such as Android Daydream mode and PhotoSphere. Visit our website to find the UK's cheapest HTC One prices.
The addition of these new features and enhanced functionality will provide further appeal to the device, and allow it to better compete with more recently released models like the Samsung Galaxy S4, which runs Android 4.2.2 Jellybean as its default operating system.
