HTC executive says U.S. HTC One owners with a carrier branded unit will have to wait for Android 4.331
Well, the news is out but it is not good for carrier-branded HTC One owners in the U.S. MacKenzie's latest tweet says that the Android 4.3 update for those models will come after the original September 30th deadline. And if you look at the August 17th tweet by the President of HTC America, you will see that he tweets that the HTC DROID DNA will be getting the Android 4.3 update. Last week, we told you that it now appears as though that handset will be updated to Android 4.2.2 instead.
It's all indicative of the problems that HTC has suffered with lately which led to Friday's announcement that HTC was selling its remaining stake in Beats back to the company for $265 million. In the meantime, those in the U.S. with a carrier branded HTC One will have to do what they do best which is sit and be patient until the Android 4.3 update is ready for them.
