The AT&T-branded variant of the HTC One has a new maintenance update available, bringing the device to version 1.26.502.15. HTC's official announcement and update instructions can be found here. This is the second OTA update to be issued to the AT&T version of HTC's flagship handset, and the changelog is but a single item long. That item? "LTE Enhancements." Hooray! (?)

According to a growing XDA thread, the update is around 245MB, though it downloads much more quickly than one would expect it to for a package of that size. I can also personally vouch for the fact that AT&T's update servers are insanely slow, so maybe that 245MB number is a typo.

That same thread indicates exactly what may have changed in this update - support for LTE bands 2 and 5, which AT&T will be utilizing more as its 4G network continues to expand. Now, how about that Android 4.2 update?

    I agree... where is the Android 4.2 / 4.3 upgrade??? :(

    How about that Android 4.3 update? 'Looks like that delivers significant improvements in battery life (something the HTC One could use). Wouldn't it be nice if rumors (that HTC will skip directly to 4.3, in North America, as soon as this Fall) were correct?

    So if we are on AT&T using a GPe or DE do we get this update or not?

    Battery life on the one is better than anyone gives it credit for. Everyone needs to quit comparing to apple because this isn't an apple. As far as android goes it's one of the better battery life devices out there if not the best. I am an android specialist and know first hand. HTC has put a lot of work into this device and it shows in every aspect....

    Got the firmware update today. Patiently awaiting Android 4.2.2. Not holding my breath, though.
