 After quite a few setbacks and unintended delays, HTC has started rolling out the Android 4.3 update for the T-Mobile variant of the One in the United States.

T-Mobile is the third carrier in the United States that has started rolling updating its One to Android 4.3. AT&T and Sprint owners got the update at the beginning of this month, and next in line are the Verizon owners, who are expected to get the update by the end of this month.

The T-Mobile One is directly getting upgraded to Android 4.3 from Android 4.1.2, which means that One owners will have a lot of new features to play around with. Below is a list of all the new features and enhancement that they will get to enjoy post the update -:

  • Quick Tiles
  • Day Dream
  • Enhanced Blinkfeed with Instagram integration
  • Updated Camera app
  • Video highlights with new themes and custom music option
  • Improved stability, smoothness and battery life
  • Lock screen widgets
  • Option to add Battery % in the status bar
  • Enhanced visualizers in the Music Player
  • OpenGL ES 3.0 support
  • Android 4.0 LE support

The hefty 560MB OTA update is being rolled out in phases so it won’t be available immediately to all One owners on T-Mobile but expect it a pop-up about the software on your device within the next few days.
