HTC One Jellybean 4.2.2 features previewed

We knew android 4.2.2 Jellybean was coming for the HTC One and today, we have some details on the update.

Back when the device was launched, one thing that most of the users were upset about was the lack of Jellybean 4.2.2. The current Jellybean version running on the phone is almost a year old now and when you buy a new device like HTC One, you expect it to be updated with the latest software.

For a month now, we have been hearing rumors about the Jellybean 4.2.2 update on the One and now we have some detailed features of the update.

Unfortunately the update sticks with Sense 5.0 but it brings several other interesting features on to the device.

The first thing that you’ll love about the update is the new battery level indicator. After the update you will be able to enable it via settings> power> show battery level.

The update also allows you to change the function of the home button on the phone. You’ll have two options to choose from, swipe up and long press for google now or swipe up for google now and long press for menu. This was one of the most liked features of the custom ROM for the phone and we are sure HTC One users will be delighted to know that this feature is built in the update.
