HTC’s official stance on the Android 4.1 update is still “reviewing the software to determine our upgrade plans and schedule,” but that’s not stopping Telstra from confirming that HTC is already working on the Jelly Bean update for the HTC One S and HTC One XL (aka HTC one X in the US). Telstra’s smartphone software updates page does not reveal when the update will be available for handset owners, but it’s probably not going to roll out any time soon since the update hasn’t yet been submitted for testing.
Many have been disappointed with how long it takes OEMs to push out the latest Android updates. This time around, I have a feeling that HTC, Samsung and most other smartphone makers will surprise with how fast they are able to deliver the Android 4.1 update to handsets currently running on Ice Cream Sandwich.
Place your bets. When do you think HTC will push out the first Android 4.1 update to the HTC One S and HTC One XL?
