A known HTC developer revealed on Twitter that the Android 4.3 update will be available for the recently announced HTC One Nexus Edition a “few weeks after release.”
The “HTC One with Nexus User Experience” was made official only yesterday at D11, although it has been rumored ever since Google unveiled the Galaxy S4 Google Edition at Google I/O 2013 earlier this month.
Just like Nexus devices – even though this special HTC One version won’t actually get the Nexus name – the Nexus experience HTC One will get timely Android.
Obviously, we expect the handset to receive Android 4.3 as soon as it’s available. According to LlabTooFeR, the smartphone will be updated a few weeks after release. Considering that this HTC One flavor will be launched on June 26, it must mean Android 4.3 is coming out at some point in July, at least for this device – assuming, of course, that the time frame offered by the developer is accurate.
Confirmed: HTC One Nexus Edition will get 4.3 update few weeks after release.

When will Google unveil Android 4.3? We still don’t know although we’ve seen plenty of hints that this is happening.. Previous rumors have said that Android 4.3 could be released as early as June 10, while other reports said the new Android OS version will come in July.
Only a few days ago, a Nexus 4 running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean has been spotted at a mobile show, but Google is yet to unveil the new OS.
