HTC One

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?
