HTC One gets Android 4.2.2 OTA in the UK and the Netherlands

HTC One gets Android 4.2.2 OTA in the UK and the Netherlands
We can imagine HTC One owners in the US are beginning to lose patience (to put it nicely), as their European counterparts continue to receive the green light on the next iteration of Android Jelly Bean. As of today, if you own an HTC One and live in the UK or the Netherlands you should head straight to Settings → About → Software Updates → Check now and get the 416MB update OTA.

Among the new goodies that we can confirm are:

  • BlinkFeed now supports streaming content from Instagram,
  • “Photo Sphere” panorama photos,
  • Lock screen improvements – widget support, the ability to swipe directly to the camera,
  • Daydream screensavers,
  • The demise of the black bar of horror: the triple dot menu that appears inside of some apps is gone, long pressing the back key will now serve as the new menu button,
  • Support for Quick Setting tiles,
  • Battery percentage has been added,
  • Improvements to the camera and Zoe,
  • General bug fixes and performance enhancements

Exactly when the new version will reach the coast of the US is yet unknown, but we imagine it's next in line.

What? HTC left us using American unlocked version to wait till 2014 to get the piece this update. Slowest update ever from Taiwan, can't imagine Peter doing this to me.

I think they're sending out the updates for the unlocked variants based on how much were sold in that country. I'm sure not many people bought the unlocked variants in the U.S, so that's at the bottom of their list. However, the U.S carrier versions sold a lot, and HTC probably already sent the update to the carriers to be tested. You'll still get your update before them, though.
