The HTC One might have launched with the slightly outdated Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but at least HTC is fulfilling its promise to update the HTC One to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (unlike another one of its smartphones).

After the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update began rolling out in Taiwan a few days ago, it was only a matter of time before the update began rolling out in other countries. The Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update has begun rolling out in select European countries and it brings a few added features and changes.

Along with the stock Android 4.2 features like Daydream, lock screen widgets and quick settings, there are a few additions that are sure to get some people excited. HTC is offering a setting which allows you to choose to long press the home button and bring the menu app, finally getting rid of that horrid black menu bar.

You’ll also recieve improved auto focus in the camera, a battery percentage in the status bar, interactive notifications and more. To see if the update is rolling out in your country, jump into your settings and check for a software update. Remember, if your HTC One is from a carrier, you might have to wait a few weeks longer.

Have you received the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update yet?

  • I have a US unlocked One and I’m among those that are waiting this side of the ocean for the update to show.

    The changes I’m looking forward to are the improved auto focus and auto exposure, the dismissal of the black bar and lock screen widgets.
