0. phoneArena 02 Oct 2013, 13:11 posted on
There is no doubt about it. HTC America President Jason Mackenzie has sent out a tweet telling the world that those toting the Sprint branded HTC One will start to receive the Android 4.3 update on Wednesday; this is a huge jump for the phone, which is going from Android 4.1.2 to the last Jelly Bean build. Some Sprint owners reported receiving the update yesterday...

Ha! The Galaxy Nexus doesn't even have 4.3 yet. You have a minimum of 2 months to go.

If you want updates on a Big Red device, buy an iphone, otherwise wait 6 months to still be 1 version behind. Verizon and CDMA in general is a joke.

Don't be an uneducated idiot spouting out junk. Read up on CDMA and it's inherent abilities. Sprint is on CDMA and is pushing the HTC One update. (PhoneArena really needs less of these people)
As for Verizon, I wouldn't put it past them to drag their heels, though there were some instances where we were pleasantly surprised.

This is not the mid 90s anymore, CDMA has no advantages over GSM anymore, it is actually worse. The only reason Sprint and Verizon haven't switch to GSM is because they want to lock all the phones to their network only.

LTE is a GSM based technology bro. I could care less what the software version number says on my droid cause it'll store have more features out of the box when compared to the iphone while still being reliable. If you like iphones thats cool its still a personal preference but to make it a game of who's got the highest software version is a joke.

HTC has stated that the Verizon HTC One will get the update at the last days of Oct. T-Mobile & AT&T will get it during mid Oct. Considering the fact that Verizon's comes pre-installed with 4.2.2, them releasing the update last isn't as bad, well imo.

T-Mobile and ATT will get Mid October and VZW will be by end of October. I read it on HTC Facebook page.

Wow ..wtf. I didn't see this one coming. Who would have thought that HTC will release 4.3 before Samsung. Patiently waiting for Samsung/At&T to release it for my S4. It better not lock the bootloader either.

Hopefully, this will be standard for all futures HTC phones.

13. JC557 (Posts: 1289; Member since: 07 Dec 2011)
Yes, let us know if 4.3 improves the battery life some more as it did on the Nexus 4 (though not all).

Major kudos to Sprint getting this out, and not sitting on it for months.

Impressed, simply said.
Wonder how long it'll be before the OneX will get its update or other former flagships?
30. ngo2dd (Posts: 896; Member since: 08 Jul 2011)
The one X has 4.2.2 but only the international one

Really? Sprint's HTC One beats AT&T to the market with 4.3?!! That's nuts.
