HTC One update to Android 4.3 is now rolling out to Canada

by: Andrew GrushSeptember 30, 2013


Recently, HTC has been working hard to get the Android 4.3 out to as many HTC One owners as possible. The update first touched down in Taiwan earlier this week, and shortly after came to Developer Edition and unlocked HTC One handsets across the globe.

Now it’s Canada’s turn! Build 3.22.631.1 is reportedly rolling out to Rogers, Bell, Virgin Mobile and TELUS users as we speak.

So what’s new here? First we have Android 4.3 changes such as Bluetooth LE, OpenGL ES 3.0 support and plenty of other “under the hood” tweaks. Beyond that, there’s also a few new HTC specific features including camera improvements that are supposed to help the handset take better photos, particularly in low-light settings. There’s also new content for BlinkFeed and a few minor changes to the Sense 5 launcher.

If you’ve yet to snag the update, be patient, as it will likely roll out in stages.

Wondering when U.S. carrier devices will get the update? All we can tell you is that the HTC One is currently in the certification process and the update is expected to rollout “soon”.

For those that have already got their hands on Android 4.3 for the HTC One, what do you think of the update so far?

      Nope, I got the updated up here in Canada tho, should be anytime for you!

  • Kay

    just got my update. only noticeable difference is in the slide notifications, now you can access quick settings easier for screen brightness, wifi etc. like you can on samsungs. I really didn’t like the slide down notifications before with energy saver as the only quick setting.
