HTC is apparently working on rolling out the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for the HTC One and HTC Droid DNA by the end of September.
HTC’s president of global sales Jason Mackenzie posted a short message on Twitter confirming as much, although he did not reveal any roll out dates, or plans for other regions than North America. Moreover, the exec did not mention Android 4.3 update plans for any of its older smartphones at this time, referring strictly to these two flagship devices.
In his short message (below), he said that the all HTC One versions in the USA and Canada, and the HTC Droid DNA (Verizon exclusive) will get Android 4.3 by the end of September.

Just earlier, we heard that the HTC One developer edition will skip Android 4.2 in favor of Android 4.3, but it now looks like carrier-branded HTC Ones will also receive their appropriate updates soon.
Android 4.3 was unveiled in late July alongside the 2013 Nexus 7 model, during a special Google media event – here’s what you need to know about it.
