HTC One 4.2.2 update coming OTA by mid-June

HTC One 4.2.2 update coming OTA by mid-June
We've seen the Android 4.2.2 leak out to the unlocked international version of the handset, and now we're getting word on when to expect the update to officially roll out over-the-air (OTA). HTC Russia’s Andrey Kormiltsev is saying that the rollout of Android 4.2.2 should start by mid-June, so there is only a couple more weeks to go.

Kormiltsev is the Country Manager for HTC in Russia and The Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). His tweet was short, but to the point, saying simply, "HTC One upgrade to 4.2.2 is planned for mid-June. By FOTA." (translated) So, it sounds like HTC One owners should be seeing the 4.2.2 upgrade, and Sense 5.0 tweaks before the HTC One Google Edition is released. 

Of course, there have also been rumors about HTC offering a way for current One owners to install the Google Edition ROM, but we haven't heard anything new on that front. Also, this isn't the first time we've heard that the HTC One update to 4.2.2 is on the way in a matter of weeks, but this time the source is far more reliable.

Not quantity of updates are important but quality! And Apple should learn that from Android.

Are you serious? LOL... Android 4.2.x got released in November of 2012. This quality update is currently being enjoyed by 4% of fandroids 7 months later. How fast will the adoption rate be for KLP?

Fail :)

"what's the point of your quality updates when it's not reaching the user base?"

Fact that Android updates distribution is slower doesn't mean that updates doesn't reach user base, so get your facts straight!
Android updates distribution is slower than on iOS, but as I have said before Android updates has more "weight" than iOS updates.

Would love to see your proof that users are getting these quality updates. I'll wait.

Here's mine.

I don't see where in your posted links it says that users are not getting updates?

Here is my proof:

It seems that you don't feel difference between "No Updates" and "Slow Updates".

In my case it is proof since it proves what I have said while in your case it is not proof since it nohow proves your proposition about updates which are not reaching user base.

if you consider 4 out of 100 people a "user base"..then you have a point. I would call them "lottery winners".

From where you get such numbers and why you are sure that the rest won't get it?

4.2 marketshare is at 4%. 4% of 100 is 4.

Dou you realize that 4% only shows CURRENT situation?

Distribution statistics doesn't say nothing about the future, they only shows CURRENT situation. And since you say that it is your proof, could you please expain me how it proves your statement that updates are not reaching users?

Even with the lagging updates with Android, it still has more functionality compare to some other OS :P

So I suppose the upcoming Verizon One should be getting 4.2.2 by... February?

This is a true test for Verizon, apologize for the late release and give us 4.2.2 out the box? Nah.

That would be awesome. If they delay the phone another month only to release a version behind everyone else, I'd be ticked but sadly not surprised. I still don't get why they released the Razr HD with ICS when JB was almost ready.

Don't get why HTC should spec bump up to 4.2.2 when they had 7 months to skin it with Sense5 before they released this phone. 2.) Nexus Experience HTC One is coming on June 26 without the need of Sense5 skinned over it so those who want to get 4.2.2 on the HTC One should have waited for it or just drop the $599 for it. 4.2.2 won't enhance or change the current experience on the phone, especially for those who claim this phone was perfect and operates better than the Galaxy S4 which is running 4.2.2.
