In a move that will hopefully appease HTC One owners across the nations four largest carriers, HTC’s official US Twitter account recently “announced” a time-frame for the Android 4.3 update. According to the tweet, HTC One owners on T-Mobile can expect to see the update sometime around mid-October. There’s no specific date, but at least mid-October provides a specific time-frame to ease the frustrations of HTC One owners that have been left wanting some sort of news regarding a date. According to The Verge, the update will “include lock screen widgets, numeric battery levels in the status bar, a quick settings panel in the notification bar, options to configure the home button, improvements to the camera, and an easier to manage file format for Zoe clips.”
The release of the HTC One Android 4.3 update will offer HTC bragging rights as the first Android manufacturer to release the update outside of Google. Google previously updated the Play Store editions of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4 to Android 4.3 a few weeks back.
Your move Samsung.
