Tucked away in HTC's press release about the HTC One X+ and Sense 4+ was one tidbit that should make quite a few people happy:

The Android Jelly Bean with HTC™ Sense 4+ update is scheduled to begin rolling out for the HTC One™ S and HTC One™ X from October.

As most of you probably already know, Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) is the most polished version of Android yet. Coupled with some of the "enhancements" in Sense 4+ - namely, the improved camera software and the Get Started functionality - it should be quite a nice update. With the rollout scheduled to begin "from October," it seems safe to assume it should be out en masse by the end of the year.

    Is it safe to assume the evo lte is part of this group?

      No, this is the carrier agnostic one series.

    October means November at best!

    @ D.Wiggins I was wa.seeing the same thing

    What about the HTC One V? Maybe I'm missing something, but I thought part of the point of HTC's "only have three phones in our lineup" strategy was that it would simplify and speed up updates for their entire range.

    I get that the One V is a "budget" phone, but people who aren't rich deserve to be on the latest version of Android too, surely?

    They didn't "promise". They said it is "scheduled to begin rolling out..". Bad reporting. Good PR on HTC's part. They know better then to promise anything!

    Thunderbolt's still waiting for ICS!

    If they don't get Jelly Bean out before the SGS3 in the US I'll be purchasing a Samsung phone next time. I love HTC but they have let me down in the past two years. My biggest quips are shoddy update schedules, non-removable small batteries, crappy antenna performance and no SD support (exempt on my EVO LTE). They seem to be preferring form over usage factor and not listening to their customers!

  • ltredbeard

    HTC has a history of breaking these "promises". Anyone remember the Thunderbolt and Inc 2 update to ICS?

  • Jesus Martinez

    Too bad this is probably for unbranded international versions only and not US carrier versions. Considering they just released the 4.0.4 update with Sense 4.1, it'll be awhile before we get anything.
