HTC One “Google Edition” passes Bluetooth SIG again, this time with Android 4.3 and Bluetooth 4.0 LE


HTC’s flagship device, the HTC One, has made its way through Bluetooth SIG again, this time its the “Google Edition” and its running Android 4.3. As we can tell from the model number (PN071) this is a stock device available exclusively from the Google Play Store.

As to why this phone is going through Bluetooth SIG again, its likely related to Android 4.3’s inclusion of the exciting new Bluetooth 4.0 LE (Low Energy), which allows phones to sync with everything from your Bluetooth headset to heart monitors and the like. Bluetooth 4.0 LE is also said to be far more efficient on battery life.
