Over the last few weeks, HTC has been rolling out Android 4.1 to several of its handsets. The update started trickling out to the international HTC One X a few weeks ago and managed to land stateside on the HTC EVO 4G LTE late last week. Now, we’re getting reports that the Jelly Bean update for the HTC One XL has been released in Taiwan and Singapore.
The 3.17.707.1 update for the HTC One XL weighs in at 658 MB and includes Android 4.1.1 with HTC Sense 4+. New features found in the Android 4.1 update include Google Now, Project Butter, offline speech-to-text and advanced notifications. Sense 4+ is accompanied by a handful of UI tweaks, an updated camera app with Sight Seeing mode (allows you to launch the camera app by pressing the power button) and a new gallery app which sort images by events, time and also maps them out by location.
If you have not already received the OTA update notification, you can try to manually ping HTC’s update servers by going to Settings > About > Software updates > Check now. As with the Android 4.1 update for the HTC One X, we expect this update will eventually work its way to other countries around the globe.
The Android 4.1 rollout for the HTC One XL is good news for those who own the AT&T branded HTC One X since both devices share the same internal hardware. We’re hoping AT&T and HTC will be able to wrap up testing within the next few days and deliver the update before the New Year.
