HTC has already been rolling out the Android 4.3 update to the developer and Taiwanese versions of the HTC One, and now unlocked international HTC One owners will be served with the same update.

The update will bring improved low light photos, Bluetooth LE and OpenGL ES 3.0 support, Sense 5 enhancements and more. Unfortunately, owners of the US or Canadian carrier versions of the HTC One will have to wait a little longer as HTC’s Jason Mackenzie has tweeted to reveal that the update will “slightly miss” the deadline for the end of September.

Mackenzie promises to keep HTC One owners updated, but it’s not quite clear what “slightly miss” means in this case, so it might be a few more weeks before HTC rolls out the update to the rest of the HTC One variants.

3 days left on 4.3 deadline for US/Canada HTC One. Unlocked out! Carrier skus coming, but will slightly miss 9/30. Will keep u updated…

For those of you with an international HTC One, go to Settings>About Phone>System updates and start hitting that check for updates button!

Are you glad to see HTC improve its updating speed? Or are you still disappointed at the speed with which flagship devices are being updated to the latest versions of Android?
