HTC unleashes Android 4.1 on HTC EVO 4G LTE

Jelly Bean for the HTC EVO 4G LTE has arrived! While we’ve been expecting the Android 4.1 update for the EVO 4G LTE for some time, none of us really expected Sprint and HTC to roll it out this soon. The HTC EVO 4G LTE was the last HTC One variant to hit the US market, but it seems they managed to make it through the development and testing process without too many delays. The software update weighs in at 396.78 MB and delivers all the usual Android 4.1.1 features (Project Butter, Google Now, advanced notifications and embedded Voice Typing). The update also includes HTC Sense 4+, bringing an enhanced UI with better performance in the camera, new landing page with even/map view in the gallery and power management improvements.

If you have not already received the OTA update notification, you can try to manually ping HTC’s update servers by going to Settings > System updates > HTC software updates > Check now. The download and install process takes roughly 10 minutes over WiFI or LTE. We would not recommend downloading the update over Sprint’s 3G network.

If you’re a proud owner of the Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE, let us know how you like your new Jelly Bean flavored Android update.
