Camera fixes and custom music in video highlights also included

Right on schedule, the HTC One has started receiving its Android 4.3 update in HTC's home country of Taiwan. The 512MB over-the-air update for the Taiwanese HTC One contains the latest version of Google's OS, along with "improvements to color contrasts in low light situations" and the ability to add custom music to video highlight reels in the gallery. The latter feature was present on the HTC One Mini, but until now it's been absent from the full-sized One.

Elsewhere, HTC America president Jason Mackenzie has promised a 4.3 update for the unlocked U.S. developer edition HTC One this week, and a similar update for Canadian customers by the month's end. There's also speculation that European HTC Ones will get a different update next month containing Android 4.3 and a newer HTC Sense 5.5 software experience with additional features.

This is a good sign that the 4.3 update is gonna come out soon.

How soon? Depends on how quickly carriers will load their useless junk on the ROM.

Good news, can't wait for sense 5.5...

ajp8806 says:

I don't think 4.3 includes sense 5.5. Only reason I say this is because all of the custom 4.3 roms (and I'm using one of them) have sense 5. I read an article saying the One max will be the first to ship with 5.5.

LlabTooFer (very reliable source) said that unlocked European phones may be updated to 4.3 with Sense 5.5 (probably after the One Max comes out).

It's very nice..!!

I really like the HTC ONE, but I can't buy it without a sd card slot, or at least 32 gigs of memory.

coronaboy10 says:

Then GO GET ONE. They start out with 32gb of STORAGE. Memory is RAM.

mkashen says:

The HTC One does have 32GB of memory... Unless you mean after the software and bloatware is added...

I'm confused.

jeffreytz says:

Get the unlocked Dev edition - 64GB!! :)

coronaboy10 says:

The One has 2gb of RAM memory. 32gb of internal STORAGE.

I have a One and really like it, but I'd at least wait at this point to see what the Nexus 5 has to offer. The speakers are amazing on this phone but the camera is a little disappointing.

return_0 says:

Nexus 5 no doubt. It'll have better specs, a newer Android version, and no bloatware.

There's a stable 4.3 leak going around for att and t-mo
You can wait till the carriers give it to you or you go and get it yourself

Sky_puff says:

That's nice.
Do skinned os use the fstrim?

BldyIdt says:

Apparently HTC uses it since 4.1.

jeffreytz says:

All I care about is the Lock Screen/Accessibility bug fix - I've only been waiting 5 months (so much for "timely updates" on the Dev Edition model).

icebike says:

Playing Catch-Up, my far east model HTC One X international (non carrier subsidized) phone updated to 4.2.2 and Sense 5.0 this morning.

patrixl says:

Yes your one-year old HTC One _X_ got the 4.2.2 update, a month or two after the more recent Taiwanese HTC One got the 4.2.2 update. Now the recent, 2013 flagship model, HTC One is getting 4.3, while your far-east model may or may not catch up to 4.3, it's as yet unknown.

goggles6 says:

When will my beloved EVO 4G LTE on Sprint get an update, any update at all? I know the man himself, Phil Nickinson, loved this phone. I hope he doesn't feel the same emotional pain as I do.

I just got 4.3 update in Europe. HTC One unlocked version.

spock123 says:

Huh? Which country/carrier?

I'm not aware of any European version getting 4.3 just yet??

pkcable says:

I have this model but I am in the US on T-Mobile. I'm not seeing the update.
