Samsung had big plans for its yesteryear flagships – Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 when it announced that both phones will be skipping Android 4.2.2 update and will be directly updated to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The big plan seemed to go well for the South Korean electronics giant as it released the Android 4.3 update for Galaxy S3 right on time, but only to be halted later because of performance issues.
HTC One is still the Taiwanese company’s flagship and hence is receiving a lot of love in terms of software updates. HTC One was launched with Android 4.1.2 out of the box and got the Android 4.2.2 update in July. More than a month back, HTC One was updated to Android 4.3 in Taiwan and the update rolled out to international HTC One during the last week of October. Android 4.3 update for HTC One has finally reached UK and we were able to update our device to Android 4.3 Jellybean. The update is available as an OTA update and is 675MB to download.
