HTC One Android 4.2 Update Could Arrive Tomorrow
The HTC One Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update, which has been rumored for the middle of June, is said to be rolling out tomorrow, June 12th, according to an HTC France ambassador.
Currently, the HTC One is running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, an older version of Jelly Bean that has since been trumped by Android 4.2, the most current release from Google. HTC One owners have been wondering when they might seen the update and thus far, we’ve received several clues.
The most immediate information suggested that it would arrive in late May, early June. Soon after, the head of HTC Russia suggested that it would roll out sometime in the middle of June. And now, an HTC Ambassador for HTC France is suggesting that the HTC One Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update will roll out tomorrow.

Yves Wi has made the claim on Twitter and claims that the roll out of Android 4.2.2 for the HTC One is confirmed. HTC has yet to issue any official statements for the update though we imagine that it may do just that sometime in the next few hours if that information is correct. Noted HTC leakster @LlabTooFeR has thrown his weight behind the update, saying that he believes that it will happen.

So, at this point, while not confirmed, it’s looking like the HTC One Android 4.2.2 update could roll out tomorrow. This is obviously big news for HTC One owners and even bigger news for those looking to snag the phone on Verizon as it is thought that Verizon is holding off on its official launch until the emergence of Android 4.2.
The Verizon HTC One is rumored to have Android 4.2 on board and HTC likely doesn’t want to give Verizon owners a huge advantage over the early adopters.
Android 4.2 will of course bring quite a bit new to the HTC One though until an official changelog surfaces, it’s impossible to say exactly what will be on board the software when it arrives. Owners of the HTC One will certainly want to be on the lookout and those who own the international unbranded model will likely be first in line to Android 4.2.
