HTC One to get updated to Android 4.2.2. in a matter of weeks
The HTC One currently is powered by Android 4.1.2, but according to an insider, the phone is just weeks away from getting updated to Android 4.2.2. Considering that Android 4.2.2 has been rolling out to various devices since February, it is not such a surprise that owners of the device want the later Android build on their phone. Since the Samsung Galaxy S4 was released with Android 4.2.2 pre-installed out of the box, HTC One owners must be wondering why they could not get the same software under the hood when the model was launched.

According to a source characterized as being "notorious" in one published report, the HTC One's update to Android 4.2.2 will take place in just two to three weeks. Instead of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie following Android 4.2.2, the next build will be Android 4.3. Google has decided to honor the request of some manufacturers who have yet to update their models to more recent Android builds, and don't want their phones to be left too far behind the most up to date version of the OS. For example, there are many models that remain on Android 4.1 and if Android 5.0 is released, those phones would be two updates behind.

Taiwan based HTC is trying to reverse its fortunes with the sleek and sexy design of the HTC One, which includes an aluminum unibody casing, and front facing stereo speakers. The manufacturer's BlinkFeed allows content from the user's social networks to be streamed to a home page. Reports say that the HTC One is selling well, but not quite up to the brisk sales pace of the Samsung Galaxy S4 which is Samsung's fastest selling phone and could reach the 10 million sales mark by this coming week, less than one month after its launch.
