HTC One

Remember last week when HTC executive Mohammed Versi announced that the Verizon One's update to Android 4.3 would begin rolling out early this week? He wasn't kidding. Verizon has posted official support documents for the HTC One's bump up to 4.3, revealing that in addition to a bump up to the newest flavor of Jelly Bean, Verizon One owners will be receiving goodies like increased charging speed with the Mophie Juicepack and a fix for the faint ringing noise in the earpiece that some users may be experiencing. Here's Verizon's full changelog:

KEY ISSUES HAVE BEEN RESOLVED

  • Increased charging speed when using Mophie Juicepack power station
  • Corrected faint ringing noise from earpieceĀ 
  • Play purchased ringtones
  • Connection error fixed in the HTC Watch application
  • View the correct date using the all day calendar reminder
  • Conjunction words are better recognized on device keyboard
  • Backup Assistant performance

KEY OS ENHANCEMENTS

  • VZ Cloud App is now preloaded
    • Back up contacts, photos, text messages and call logs
    • Transfer that content to your new phone or if other is lost/stolen

GALLERY>VIDEO HIGHLIGHT IMPROVEMENTS

  • Add your own music tracks to Video Highlights video
    • Simply tap Menu>Select Music to choose a song from your collection

That looks like a nice batch of bug fixes and other improvements, but I'm guessing that most Verizon HTC One folk will just be glad to finally be on Android 4.3 after enduring a near-two month delay. Neither HTC nor Verizon have announced exactly when this update will actually begin rolling out, but with Mohammed Versi's estimate that the update would arrive early this week, it could get going as soon as today. To perform a manual update check, grab your Verizon One and head into Settings > Phone Update > Check for Update > Download Now.
