The latest tweet by Mo Versi VP Product Management at HTC has ruled out further updates for the HTC One 2013 smartphone. The HTC One recently got the Android 5.0 update, that was the last as per the company the handset will not get any further updates.
This could disappoint HTC One users. HTC however will provide Android 5.1 update to HTC One M7 (Google Play Edition). HTC One is currently priced at Rs. 32,000. It is powered by 1.7GHz qualcomm snapdragon quad core processor with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage along with 64GB micro SD card support.
The handset weighs about 143 grams and sports a 4.7 inch screen (1920 x 1080 pixels resolution) with gorilla glass 2 protection. Key attraction is the UltraPixel 4MP primary camera that captures 300% more light and 2.1MP front camera.
Additional features are 3G, 2G, NFC, Bluetooth 4, GPS, DLNA and Wi-Fi (a/ac/b/g/n). The 2300 mAh battery that this dual SIM handset houses gives about 18 hours of talk-time on 3G networks.
HTC One users have already got the Lollipop update but that’s it. Software update cycle for any smartphone is usually 2 years from the day it is launched after that manufacturers most likely will not provide any further updates.
