Android 4.3 upgrade 'in the early fall,' says carrier

A few days back we caught wind that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 might be jumping straight from Android 4.1 to (the still unannounced) version 4.3 in some countries. And today it seems at least one other phone might be doing the same. Android Central forum member NKYRacing got in touch with Cincinnati Bell to ask about the just-released 4.2.2 update for his phone, only to be told by the carrier that its HTC One would instead get an update straight to Android 4.3 —

"We were just informed by HTC they would skip 4.2.2 and go straight to 4.3 in the early Fall."

It's unclear whether any other HTC One variants might also leapfrog 4.2, although we should note that the current 4.2.2 update is already rolling out in Europe and Asia. Hopefully we'll learn more once Android 4.3 is officially announced — and it's looking like that's going to happen sooner rather than later.
