HTC One Android 4.2.2 release date update

By Alan Ng - Jun 5, 2013

Some HTC One owners may be a little disappointed to hear that HTC and Google now have plans to offer a Nexus version of the device this Summer, but it is not all bad news for you this week. We hear details that HTC may be planning to bring an official update to Android 4.2.2 within weeks.

With current owners stuck on a Sense version of the device, many consumers will be hoping that the next version of Android will add a few more tweaks to make the experience a lot more pleasurable. The good news, is that the boss of HTC Russia has given out some very revealing information on his Twitter account that should put a smile on your face.

According to him, the HTC One Android 4.2.2 update will be rolling out OTA during the middle of June. That suggests that an update is perhaps two weeks away, with the International version of the device most likely to get the update first. That then leaves carrier versions after that, so we could be looking at all users updated to Android 4.2.2 before the end of June.

It sounds logical as well, given that Google and HTC will sell the stock version of the device on the Google Play Store on June 26. This device will probably ship with Android 4.2.2 out of the box, but will almost instantly be updated to Android 4.3 as well, kicking the cycle off once again.

Those familiar to the underground scene may already be running a version of Android 4.2.2 on their HTC One, thanks to the recent release of a custom ROM. If so, then you probably won’t have any desire to install the official update if it comes with more Sense-based tweaks.

Are you a happy HTC One owner at the moment, upon hearing that a Nexus version is on the way at the end of the month without Sense?

    I could care less for the Sense UI, but the Zoe camera software is what does it for me. If Google can figure out a way for them to keep that on their version of the phone, then I will wipe mine clean and flash over. If not, then I’ll just stick with what I’ve got until I’m sick of it then wipe clean and flash over later. Would really like to see HTC come out with a phone that has a 13 megapixel camera WITH the Ultra Pixel software.

    The Sense UI and camera extras like Zoe are what make the HTC the phone it is. The stock UI has no appeal for me.
