HTC has released a statement to the media concerning its plans to update a number of its recent smartphones to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Unsurprisingly, the manufacturer plans to update its high-end One series to the latest version of Android, though a specific time line for when the updates would be available was not provided.
HTC's statement on the its update plans is as follows:
"We know HTC fans are excited to get their hands on Google's latest version of Android. 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. Please stay tuned for more updates regarding device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Jelly Bean."
As mentioned, this really shouldn't come as much of a surprise - HTC's One series of phones were just launched earlier this year and represent the manufacturer's best work to date. It would be more of a surprise if HTC said it didn't plan to update them to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The other member of the One series, the lowly One V, was not mentioned in HTC's statement, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it won't see Jelly Bean at some point in the future as well. Timing for the updates is another point that is up in the air, as HTC has not really given any indication as to when the updates for the One X, One XL (One X on AT&T), or the One S will arrive. Certain factors like geographic regions and carrier involvement have a lot to do with how updates are distributed, so we will have to wait for more information from HTC for when we can expect to see these updates hit users' devices.via: The Verge
