The HTC One Android 4.2.2, JellyBean update could be rolling out sometime today.
The new software is rumored to hit the device during the next 24 hours, according to a report from Android Authority. The site obtained this information from other tech publications such as Android Community and HubFr. HTC did not confirm the update, so the possibility of it rolling out today is still up in the air.
An HTC ambassador tweeted out a message a few hours ago that confirmed the software's release for this week.
"HTCOne Update (OTA) coming tomorrow to 2.x. version (4.2.2 & Sense 5)," said Yves Wi on his Twitter account.
There have also been other reports confirming the features included in the HTC One Android 4.2.2 update, however, many of them were recorded from Custom ROMs.
The HTC One Android 4.2.2, JellyBean Google Edition will be released on June 26.
The smartphone was announced by the CEO of Google Chrome and Android, Sundar Pichai, at the end of last week on the stage of the D11 conference in Los Angeles. The device will run Android 4.2.2 AOSP.
This version of the HTC One will feature the same specifications as the original model. It will be available unlocked in the Google Play Store on June 26. The 32GB version will cost $599, making it $50 cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition.
HTC apparently plans on manufacturing around 1 percent of the sales of the current One model, according to a Pocket-link report. Judging from the latest global sales figures of the smartphone, that will be only 50,000 units. HTC wants to test the waters first before it decides to go with a bigger rollout of the pure Android HTC One, according to the website's sources.
