HTC’s current-generation entry-level smartphones won’t be getting a platform bump to the latest version of Android, the phone-maker has disclosed.
In a post on HTC's website detailing its plans to bring the Jelly Bean iteration of Android to its phones, HTC said that although the higher-end One X and One S will get the update, lower-spec kits, the Desire C and One V, won’t be invited to the party.
HTC stated: "We work hard to ensure each of our products has the optimal user experience and therefore some products will remain at their current version of Android.
"In general, devices with 512MB RAM or less will not be upgraded to Android 4.1. At present, these devices include the HTC One V and the HTC Desire C.”
The Taiwanese tech purveyor added: “As we identify other devices that will not be upgraded, we'll provide updated information."
Earlier this year, HTC claimed that the One X and One S would get Jelly Bean in October. However, for reasons that have not been explained, Android 4.1 has yet to make an appearance. HTC is also yet to give owners any new timeframe for when they can now expect their software reswizzle.
