Dual-SIM HTC One updated to Android 4.2.2

Dual-SIM HTC One updated to Android 4.2.2
The Dual-SIM version of the HTC One is available only in China, yet it is the first variant of the phone to receive the Android 4.2.2 firmware update. The good news for the rest of you who are rockin' the plain old one SIM version of the phone, is that this is a sign that you could soon be receiving the update yourselves. Just remember that carrier testing is one of the reasons why updates seem to take forever.

According to a screenshot, the update weighs in at a hefty 175.25MB and besides the Android 4.2.2 goodies, it includes an enhancement for the launcher bar, a revamped widget panel and a new lock screen design. A new option added to the home button allows you to remove the navigation menu bar and the battery level can now be read from the status bar. Toss in a couple of changes to the notifications shade such as a Quick Settings panel and an Auto Focus lock for the camera, and the update is just about covered.

If having Android 4.2.2 come on your HTC One out of the box is so important to you, digging deeply into your wallet for $599 will allow you to buy the "Google Edition" of the HTC One which will ship with Android 4.2.2 already installed, starting on July 9th. And later the same month, the unit just might even be updated to Android 4.3. Ah, isn't it nice to be the King own a "Google Edition" handset?
