AUSTRALIAN TELECOM Telstra has revealed that the mid-range HTC One S will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean along with the supersized HTC One XL.
In a post on its web site, the Australian telco, internet service provider and mobile operator has let slip that the HTC One S will get the bump to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, although hasn't spilled details on a release date yet. Instead, Telstra said, "HTC is preparing an update but is yet to confirm the date it will be submitted for Telstra testing."
The web site also revealed that the HTC One XL will be upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Although this phone isn't available in the UK, it's a good sign that the update will be coming to the HTC One X here in Blighty.
It's unclear whether the HTC One S and One XL will get all of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean features, but given the handsets' decent hardware specifications we can't see their owners being left in the lurch.
This means that once Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is installed users should be able to get their hands on Google's redesigned interface, Google Now and enhanced keyboard and Project Butter, which aims to speed up smartphones' overall performance.
We have contacted HTC, which told us that it was unable to comment on rumour and speculation. µ
