HTC One Android 4.2.2 update begins seeding for non-carrier phones

oneblackSmartphone maker HTC has finally begun seeding its Android 4.2.2 update to the HTC One smartphones that are designated ‘carrier free’ (ie, unlocked) around the world.

So far, its available in some European countries for the 4G variant. According to AndroidCentral, the HTC One Android 4.2.2 update weighs in at 417MB and rebadges the phone to version 2.24.401.1.

Among the new features the update brings to the One are: battery percentage in the space bar, new & improved Launcher Bar, widget panel rearrangement, auto-exposure and auto-focus improvements for the 4MP camera.

But despite the update, HTC One owners are already debating whether this will be the last update for the phone or will HTC work on an Android 4.3 version when Google releases the next Jelly Bean update. At this stage, there are no reports of the update breaking any functionality, although one user has reported that Google Keyboard no longer works.

One thing to note is that this is just the update for unlocked versions of the HTC One. Like most previous HTC models, you can expect to wait a number of weeks before the update passes through the hands of the network providers. To check for the update, you select Settings / About / Software updates and depending on your location, the update available notification should appear.
