For those who are quite familiar with HTC smartphones, it isn’t difficult for them to notice the new changes it has brought about in the HTC One. To be more precise, though it hasn’t diverted from its One X roots, it still has brought about some changes. To start with, the HTC flagship device now boasts of a metal unibody construction, with aluminum being the choice of material. The device has already won critical acclaim on numerous occasions for its build quality and rigidity.
Also, another notable feature of the HTC One device is the latest Sense UI that it comes with, that doesn’t have much in common with Sense 4+/4. It is quite light and fast and depends on the idea that the majority of the smartphone users don’t make much use of multiple home screens. Therefore BlinkFeed has been made.
Now coming to the aspect of Android 4.2.2 being made available to the One X, X+ as well as HTC Butterfly, while HTC has already committed to it, the good news here is that the HTC Butterfly has already emerged to be the first device to receive the above mentioned update. Android version 4.2.2 has been launched for HTC Butterfly in Taiwan which also includes the latest version of the Sense UI. Needless to say, the update will elevate the Butterfly to the latest hardware standards of HTC, even though if it is only in terms of software.
Some of the hardware supported features are also not part of this update, although the majority of the best feature including the BlinkFeed is present. So in light of the above development, the Verizon’s Droid DNA which happens to be the US version of the HTC Butterfly can be considered to be next in queue to get the update soon. There is a problem though, since the Big Red is also famous for its delay in releasing software update, so one has to wait and see how fast the package becomes available.
