There was no real surprise when HTC announced the Android 4.3 update for their flagship Smartphone, the HTC One. But when the president of the same company's American division, Jason MacKenzie, announced that the EVO 4G LTE will also be treated the same way, it left quite a few owners of this Sprint exclusive device jumping with glee. For those of you who have stuck to this somewhat old phone, HTC is treating you for your loyalty with a premium pass to the latest version of Android, with the new Sense 5 (not 5.5, sadly) UI.
@Cpt_Throwback @RickNiley EVO 4G LTE will get Sense 5 and 4.3 before year end. thanks for your patience— Jason Mackenzie (@JasonMacHTC) October 5, 2013
The expected timeframe of arrival of the update is "before the end of the year", and unfortunately, that is the best we have for now.
