Ever, since Google announced and launched Android 4.3, smartphone owners all over the world are awaiting the upgrade. Now, Jason Mackenzie, President of HTC America, has spilled the beans that HTC One owners will get it soon - including HTC Sense 5.5. Starting with the North American HTC One Developer Edition, HTC seems to plan starting the roll-out end of this week, with Canada to follow-up end of this month. Furthermore Mackenzie unveiled that U.S. customers have to wait a little bit longer because HTC is still working with U.S. carriers to get the latest Android upgrade certified; but Mackenzie is optimistic (whatever it means). Unfortunately, still no word about Android 4.3 upgrades for either the rest of the world or HTC One mini.
Nevertheless, if HTC has the code done for its own One Developer Edition, it can be expected that the different carrier and open market versions across the world should get the upgrade soon as well. At least it would make me wonder if HTC is currently working with U.S. carriers only.
UPDATE: I've just received the unvalidated information that - whichever Sense version the 4.3 upgrade will bring - it's might not called Sense 5.5 but it was also said that it's definitely an updated Sense experience and version to today's Sense 5.
