Earlier today, HTC started rolling out Android 4.3 to Canada. Now Verizon has released documentation for its own upcoming HTC One update. Unfortunately, no, the update does not include Android 4.3.
Version 1.10.605.10 is all about making the HTC One run smoother, and apparently results in fewer locks up and glitches for the handset. We find this somewhat surprising, as we haven’t really heard any reports about the Verizon HTC One having noticeable problems with locks ups and performance stability.
What makes this update really strange is the timing, since Android 4.3 is supposedly right around the corner.
The 33.8MB update also introduces a new update to Verizon’s Isis Mobile Wallet, and adds internet accessibility for the visually impaired. With support docs already available today, we imagine this update will hit devices within the next couple of days.
What makes this update really strange is the timing, since Android 4.3 is supposedly right around the corner. Verizon might have felt these so-called ‘device lock-ups’ needed to be addressed immediately, or it could be a sign that the Verizon HTC One will be later to the Android 4.3 party than the rest of the U.S. carriers.
Given Verizon’s history, we can’t say we’d be surprised if the carrier ends up further delaying the jump to Android 4.3, though we certainly hope not.
We have to ask: Any Verizon HTC One owners have problems with your device freezing or other odd glitches?
