HTC One is finally said to receive the required Android 4.3 update and a major UI improvement. If it was just the Android update, the Taiwanese owners of the HTC One have already got them back in September. Soon the update went taking rounds starting in Asia, Canada and US. However, many countries which had missed the update then will receive it soon on their international HTC One devices now.
As said earlier, along with the Android 4.3 update, the system update also installs the new HTC Sense 5.5 UI to the HTC One devices, which currently feature an older version of the UI (Sense 5.0).
Weighing 675MB, the update brings a couple of changes on HTC One and is quite different in comparison to the Android 4.3 version which was released in the US and Taiwan markets previously.
The new Sense 5.5 update introduces a number of new features including the ability to disable BlinkFeed. Further, the users can also have the option to save articles for offline reading. The update also brings some improvements in the camera.
It should be noted that the update will be first released to unlocked HTC One units in European and Asian countries, where no Android 4.3 update has been rolled-out. But for those countries which have already received it earlier, HTC will be rolling out a separate Sense 5.5 UI update for them soon.
