Android 4.1 – aka Jelly Bean – is being readied as we speak for the HTC One S and its supersized cousin, the One XL, a software release schedule from Aussie carrier Telstra reveals.
While not been officially announced yet by HTC, the network's comment on the status on the OS refresh is that "HTC is preparing an update but is yet to confirm the date it will be submitted for Telstra testing”.
Not even an estimated time of arrival was provided, but with any luck it won’t take much longer than six to eight weeks, or else the Taiwanese phone-maker might have another online uprising on its hands.
Features the latest, chewiest iteration of Android brings include Google Now, a Siri-style personal voice assistant that offers morsels of live information based on your queries and activities, enhanced notifications, numerous UI tweaks and a deluge of performance optimisations as part of Google’s ‘Project Butter’ initiative to make Android less cumbersome to use.
We’ll be sure to let you know when we have more information to share regarding its rollout in the UK. So stay tuned.
