The HTC One X will be updated to the latest version of Android next month, it has been claimed.
According to Android developer Paul O’Brien’s site MoDaCo, HTC will push out Jelly Bean, or Android 4.1 to give the OS iteration its official title, some time during October. That due date only applies to One X kits bought off-contract and SIM-free, of course.
Apparently, network-branded versions of the phone will get Jelly Bean before Christmas. The putative delay is due to the time carriers set aside to carry out tests to ensure that the new software works with their proprietary services.
Features Jelly Bean brings to the One X include a revamped notification bar and the well received Google Now app that teams elements of Apple’s Siri voice commands service with smart search functionality.
HTC’s plans to upgrade its current-generation flagship phone comes after it recently emerged that just 1.5 per cent of Android devices are running Jelly Bean – laying bare the extent of the fragmentation problems facing Google.
