Here's some real good news for HTC smartphone users. The company has confirmed that it will update three of its flagship smartphone namely HTC One X, One S and One XL to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean soon, the latest version of Google's mobile operating system.
We know HTC fans are excited to get their hands on Google's latest version of Android, Jeff Gordon, HTC's Global Online Communications Manager told The Verge. At this point in time, we can confirm that we have plans to upgrade our HTC One X, HTC One XL and HTC One S to Jelly Bean.
However, the company hasn't provided any information regarding the availability of the upgrade, which suggests that the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer is probably still working on things behind the scenes. Please stay tuned for more updates regarding device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Jelly Bean, Gordon said.
Adding to it, Slashgear reported, citing an HTC spokeperson that the Jelly Bean update is for all versions worldwide, including the carrier-specific versions in the U.S.
Australian carrier Telstra was recently spotted letting out the word that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was under way for the HTC One S and One XL, though it didn't mention the One X. There's no word yet on whether other popular HTC smartphones such as the One V, EVO 4G LTE and Droid Incredible 4G LTE will also be included in the update plan.
Meanwhile, Galaxy Nexus S variants including the i9023 and i9020T have reportedly started getting over-the-air (OTA) updates of Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.
The 114MB update, which brings the Nexus S' build up to JRO03E, is also available to download directly from Google's server for users with either the i9023 or i9020T hardware variants, Android Police reported.
