HTC has confirmed that it will update both the HTC One X and HTC One S Android smartphones to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean later this month. Previous rumors suggested that HTC would upgrade both phones in October, and the Taiwanese manufacturer has now officially announced that an update will arrive in a few weeks. The confirmation comes courtesy of a single-line statement in conjunction with the announcement of the HTC One X+, which will launch in Europe and Asia with Android 4.1 preinstalled on the phone.
HTC says that the One X and One S will update to Sense 4+, which includes new features for personalizing the setup process through the web, a new video hub, improved photo capture when taking Self Portrait photos with the front-facing camera, and several other enhancements made possible by the inclusion of Android 4.1. Based on previous history with its update schedules, HTC is likely to first update phones that are not tied to a carrier. That means HTC One X and HTC One S devices in Europe and Asia are likely to be first to receive the update. Updates for users in North America may be delivered in the following weeks.source: HTC
