The update weighs 417MB, packs appealing Sense UI enhancements
Earlier this week, info on the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system update being pushed to HTC One users in Taiwan emerged online, complemented today by info on the availability of the update for HTC One users in Europe.The new software arrives on devices as a 417MB download, while featuring version number 2.24.401.1, a recent article on Android Central reads.
Apparently, HTC has started the deployment of the update in Europe with the Scandinavian countries, but it should not be too long before it is made available to users in other parts of the continent as well.
Android 4.2.2 will provide users with some appealing enhancements on their devices, including features such as Daydream and lock screen widgets, while also offering a series of Sense UI improvements coming from HTC themselves.
The list of changes packed inside the update reportedly includes:
- Launcher bar enhancement
- Widget panel rearrangement
- New lock screen style and widget
- Enhanced behavior of the home button
- The death of the black bar
- Battery percentage in the status bar
- Quick settings
- AE/AF enhancements in the camera
The roll-out of the new OS upgrade will be performed in stages, which means that not all users will see it available for their smartphones right away.
However, they are able to check on its availability by going to Settings > About > Software updates on their HTC One units.
Given that Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean has been already released for the owners of the dual-SIM version of the HTC One, it might not be too long before the software arrives on all devices out there, following the European release, so stay tuned to learn more on the matter.
Hopefully, the Taiwanese mobile phone maker will reconsider the availability of Android 4.2 for another smartphone in its lineup, the HTC One S, and will decide that the phone can indeed receive it, especially now that users have joined hands into signing a petition for it.
