Beside having countless operator and open market versions, there's also the HTC One Google Play Edition as well as the HTC One Developer Edition. While the Google Play Edition and Developer Edition are somewhat confirmed to receive the upgrade within 2013, the biggest question left was when the regular HTC One will receive it?
