HTC has already confirmed that it will released the Android 4.3 update for HTC One next month. Today a custom ROM that brings a pre-release version of Android 4.3 with HTC Sense 5.0 to the international variant of HTC One has been released. The ROM was released by well known Android developer LlabTooFeR, who says that he will release the original, untouched pre-release Android 4.3 update for HTC One on August 28th at 10 a.m. GMT.
It should be clear that this is not an official ROM, its a custom ROM. This particular ROM is based on the unreleased firmware version 3.09.401.1. There are a few noticeable changes. Users can now use their own music for video highlight reels, Sense will automatically sync picture changes to the track’s beat. There are a couple of new shortcuts for Data Usage and Wi-Fi hotspot. A new Task Manager is also present in the app drawer. Since this is a pre-release build, its likely that you might encounter some bugs while using this ROM. Future builds are likely to bring more features for HTC’s flagship Android smartphone. HTC is yet to announce exactly when it intends on rolling out Android 4.3 for the HTC One. This custom ROM can be downloaded from XDA forums, only do so at your own risk.
