Android 4.3-Based HTC One Google Edition Emerges at Bluetooth SIG

The HTC One Google Edition smartphone has just received approvals from the Bluetooth SIG with the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system loaded on top, recent reports on the matter suggest.

The handset features model number PN071 and packs Bluetooth 4.0 LE support inside, which further confirms previous rumors on the technology being included inside the next Android platform release, along with other enhancements.
