HTC One Google Edition spotted running on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
A stock Android version of the HTC One has reportedly been spotted running on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, which Google is yet to formally release.
Previously, the Google edition of the Samsung Galaxy S4 unofficially received the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update and it seems that the HTC One Google edition is following suit.
"The model received certification for Bluetooth on July 5th after the application was filed on June 18th. The model number, PN071, reflects the fact that this is a stock Android handset available from the Google Play Store," claims the report.
Even though some Android devices have started receiving Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, most of the Android devices are still running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or lower. Google has not yet confirmed Android 4.3 Jelly Bean or its roll out details; however, it should not come as a surprise if Nexus devices are the first to get the software update followed by the Google edition of handsets such as the HTC One.
The HTC One features top-end features and the Android-powered handset sold in over five million units within just 30 days of release. With the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system on board, many more customers will likely be interested in the latest HTC offering.
The Google edition of the HTC One will be free from the HTC Sense overlay which runs on top of Android. The handset will also be free from carrier-specific firmware. What's more, the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update will add Bluetooth 4.0 LE support, which is the Low Energy version of Bluetooth. The new Bluetooth support will allow a phone to sync with accessories like heart rate monitors, thermometers and other similar monitors.
All previous Android updates have brought various enhancements and fixes to Android-powered devices. Users will hope that the upcoming Android 4.3 Jelly Bean also brings along various new features to their handsets.
Until Google officially announces Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and which handsets will get the latest software release, however, nothing is for certain.
