HTC will being rolling out Android 4.1 to its 2012 phones imminently, giving the One range much-needed fresh legs.
According to the Taiwanese phone-maker, owners of its One X flagship phone and its less costly cousin, the One S, can expect to get their upgrade to Android 4.1 (AKA Jelly Bean) from October.
Naturally, that date applies to phones bought off-contract and SIM-free. Owners of the One X and One S who purchased their kit through a carrier face a longer wait while their network carries out compatibility tests.
Features the update is set to bring to HTC’s kits include a revamped notifications bar and Google Now – a sort of Siri-rivalling voice app-cum-digital-assistant-cum-intelligent-search function.
The platform bump also adds the new version of HTC’s Sense custom skin, Sense 4+, which adds a new self-portraid mode on the front camera, as well as a sight-seeing mode that lets you fire up the camera up with a single press of the phone’s power button.
