TELUS says Android 4.3 coming to HTC One by the end of this month
Canadian carrier TELUS has posted its schedule of upcoming software updates and lo and behold, on the schedule is the HTC One. Apparently, TELUS customers toting the Taiwan based handset manufacturer's Android flagship model (that's a mouthful), will soon be getting their HTC One updated to the last of the Jelly Bean builds, Android 4.3.

The update is currently in the process of being tested on the device and Android 4.3 is penciled in for a late September rollout. Considering that Sunday starts the third week of the month, we would expect the update to be coming any day now. And if you live in the U.S., no worries. As we told you earlier this month, all signs point to the update coming to the U.S. with Sense 5.0. This also is expected to take place in a matter of weeks.

After coming to Canada and the U.S., the international version of the HTC One will be next in line to receive Android 4.3. One big difference however, is that the overseas HTC One will be receiving Sense 5.5 along with its Android 4.3 update.

I still don't believe the US will get the update before the rest of the world.... That's the opposite of reality.

I would rather have a customized version of an older Android version than a stripped down version of the latest version of iOS. The iPhone 4 runs absolutely horrible on iOS 7, and it doesn't even get to have all the features of it because Apple removes more features from the update the further back the generation.

I would much rather have the original Galaxy S (released in the same year as the iPhone 4), which is on 2.3 right now than an iPhone 4. Not only does it have the FULL feature set of 2.3, but it also has additional features from Touchwiz that makes it more useful. Also, in my experience, it runs MUCH better than the iPhone 4.

Hey Telus, did you forget about the OneX and X+.
When the Frakkin carrier is involved, nothing is simple or timely.

Im happy with 4.1 so that fact that they're going to 4.3 is a nice surprise, though I am not holding my breath. These tech companies want to have latest software on their latest devices, it does not make sense, from their perspective, to bring the new OS to a device over one year old.
