HTC: carrier release of HTC One Android 4.3 update “will slightly miss 9/30”
We knew was too good to be true when HTC President Jason Mackenzie promised that all US and Canadia versions of the HTC one would be updated to Android 4.3 before the end of September. While the unlocked and Developer Editions started receiving the update yesterday, it seems carrier branded phones will not recevie the update by the self-imposed deadline.
The news was delivered via Jason Mackenzie’s Twitter account earlier this afternoon. No additional details have been posted, just Jason promised he would “keep u updated…” as soon as he has more information to share. While it’s disappointing that HTC was not able to push the update through carrier approval quicker, we do appreciate the open dialogue HTC is having. We should also give HTC credit for being the first OEM to push out the Android 4.3 update (yes, HTC also beat Samsung to the punch with the 4.3 rollout to its Google Play edition phone).
3 days left on 4.3 deadline for US/Canada HTC One. Unlocked out! Carrier skus coming, but will slightly miss 9/30. Will keep u updated…
