HTC One Google Edition spotted at Bluetooth SIG with Android 4.3

08 July, 2013

Traces of an HTC One Google Play Store edition running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean have been found over at the Bluetooth SIG. Carrying the model number PNG71xx_Android_4.3_G, the smartphone has undergone the certification process starting June 18 and has got the all clear on July 5.

The reason for the re-certification of the HTC One is that Android 4.3 supports Bluetooth 4.0 LE. As a result, the Google Play Store versions of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 running Android 4.3 will be able to connect to a myriad of accessories supporting the new low power standard.

Android 4.3 is still expected to be carrying the Jelly Bean name and as we found out in our testing of the Samsung Galaxy S4 leaked ROM, there are few changes worth writing home about. Google is yet to officially announced the next version of Android, but judging by the more and more intensive leaks, it can't be far away now.

We urge you to check out the Google Play Store edition HTC One unboxing and hands-on in our Blog.
