Android 4.2.2 Rolls Out to HTC One Devices in Europe

htc one

Owners of older HTC devices will tell you that the company has not always had the best track record with pumping out Android updates in a timely manner. That stigma has slightly changed; however, with HTC trying to put on its best face for customers and investors alike. The latest version of Android, 4.2.2 aka Jelly Bean, started rolling out to HTC Ones in Taiwan last week. Additionally, reports have this upgrade expanding across the globe to One devices in Europe.

The new update brings Android’s Daydream feature and lockscreen widgets that are featured in stock Android, as well as a changelog of Sense UI features. There is a new look to the notification bar, battery percentages in the notification bar, the addition of quick settings to the Sense drop down menu and many other new enhancements.

A launch like this in Europe usually means that we will see it here in the States fairly soon. Fingers crossed.

      417MBs!? Holy Bloat, Batman!

      Need to get my One onto a stable Cyanogenmod build, my tolerance of Sense 5 is strained to the breaking point as is.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        A lot of features

        • Tyler Durden

          And they say touchwiz is a hog.

          • LionStone

            Yea but these are actual features! 🙂

          • Elliot Kotis

            Touchwiz has gimmicks.

    “…the company has not always had the best track record with pumping out Android updates in a timely manner. That stigma has slightly changed…” Yeah, now they don’t support OS upgrades flagship devices they released 7 months prior.

  • banditball

    Jelly Bean still excites us? Is it just me or does Google seem to be stalling and waiting for competitor’s to catch up? We need a new version or our momentum will fade fast….

    When in the UK???

    “That stigma has slightly changed; however.” I don’t see how. They launched with an older version of the OS, it took them three months to push an update to an Android version that has been out since November. Not really sure they’ve become any quicker here, but yeah, good to see it’s finally rolling out.

      I see it as a change because it’s actually the *latest* version instead of the already out-dated since another version was launched recently. They are doing a bit better, IMO.

    *waits patiently for Droid DNA port*

    • Sean Royce

      You’ll be waiting a while.

      • possomcrast1

        Droid DNA already has multiple ports of the current ONE Sense 5. This shouldn’t be that much different (once the US version arrives).

        • Sean Royce

          You’ll be waiting a while for the official release.

          • possomcrast1

            Ah, I was talking about rom ports.

          • Sean Royce

            True, I got a down vote anyway, typical.

    • Elliot Kotis

      Fricking Verizon phones ay, I am in Australia, but I see Verizon news, like the VGN still isnt on the latest version of android, they suck you in with the amazing phones like DNA, and then not even Devs really support it 🙁 If I were in USA I woulda gotten the DNA!

      • Sean Royce

        Australian here also, so glad this doesn’t happen here.
