Company is in process of getting HTC One and Droid DNA phones across the US and Canada on Android 4.3 next month
Jason Mackenzie, president of global sales at HTC, has taken to Twitter to give an update on the recent news that some HTC phones will be skipping Android 4.2.2 and jumping straight to Android 4.3. The quote, in all its 140 character glory:
Lots of questions re 4.3 release for One. We r wrking hard (needs cert) to release 4.3 across all US, Canada skus by end Sept. DNA as well.
Abbreviations aside, this is good news for everyone on this side of the world waiting for an update on their HTC One or Droid DNA. In Europe and Asia, HTC One units as well as the DNA's twin the Butterfly are already running Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5, but here in the Americas even the unlocked Developer Edition is still on Android 4.1.2.
We've no idea what changes HTC will bring with the 4.3 update, but we expect them to address the dreaded black bar as well as make a few changes to the camera software like they have done with the 4.2.2 update. For now, we'll all be patiently waiting.
