HTC_One_VX_Front

The One VX was a rather quickly-forgotten mid-range handset released only on AT&T in the US, and we haven't heard much about it since its announcement. Those who purchased what is best called HTC's follow-up to the One S, though, will be pleased to know that an Android 4.1 update is head their way starting today. You can see HTC's announcement of the update, software version 2.21.502.1, here. Of course, Android 4.1 brings awesome stuff like Google Now and expandable notifications.

The AT&T-branded variant of the HTC One has a new maintenance update available, bringing the device to version 1.26.502.15. HTC's official announcement and update instructions can be found here. This is the second OTA update to be issued to the AT&T version of HTC's flagship handset, and the changelog is but a single item long. That item? "LTE Enhancements." Hooray! (?)

According to a growing XDA thread, the update is around 245MB, though it downloads much more quickly than one would expect it to for a package of that size.

Update 2: Verizon has confirmed that it is in fact an update to Android 4.1.2, not Android 4.2, as the screenshot below now reflects.

Update: It sounds like this may be an Android 4.1.2 update, not Android 4.2. The build number JZO54M is, according to Google's own codename site, an Android 4.1.2 build (specifically, Android 4.1.2 R2.1). Sounds like Verizon done goofed. We've reached out for confirmation, but I'd be skeptical if the Verizon XOOM suddenly bunny-hopped from Android 4.0 to Android 4.2.

While the AT&T Galaxy S III received its Android 4.1 update way back in December 2012, it still had yet to get the Samsung "Premium Suite" upgrade with the much-vaunted multi window feature. Starting today, that update is rolling out - a full two months after even infamously-slow Verizon managed with its own S III. Better late than never, I guess.

Here's AT&T's brief changelog:

Software update includes

  • Multi Window: You can open two different apps at the same time into two different windows on the mobile screen.

Thanks to an update released today, the AT&T Pantech Discover is making the jump to Android 4.1.2. It may be two versions behind at this point, but it still gives users access to Google Now, which is perhaps the biggest advancement that Jelly Bean has to offer. Now you would be forgiven for seeing this phone's brand and rolling your eyes, but the Discover is actually a competent device.

While LG originally announced the Optimus G Pro "Value Pack" back in March, at the time it was in reference to the Korean version of the device. The G Pro has since been released on AT&T Value Packless, but it appears that's finally changing: LG has officially announced that the VP upgrade will be hitting AT&T G Pro handsets very soon. While it sadly does not include an Android version bump, it does add a host of new features.

Verizon has announced a pair of OTA updates for the RAZR HD (HD MAXX) and RAZR M, bringing a suite of enhancements and bug fixes to the two handsets.

Both updates include new versions of Backup Assistant and Motorola's Smartactions, as well as improved GPS reliability, increased stability, improved Bluetooth connectivity, SMS fixes, and support for VMware Horizon Mobile. Various security fixes from Google are also included. If your device is rooted, as always, be wary of downloading these updates, which should be rolling out in the next week or two.

If you bought into the ruggedized LTE device hype and picked up a Kyocera Torque on Sprint, then good news is afoot: your little tank is getting its taste of Jelly Bean beginning in just three days' time. According to Sprint's update blog, the Torque should begin receiving an update on July 5th that not only brings Android 4.1.2 to the rough-and-tough handset, but also international calling, the ability to "power cycle," email sync fixes, and enhancements to sleep mode.

HTC has confirmed that the One S - something of an unloved stepchild in the 2012 One line of phones - will not be receiving any future Android or Sense version upgrades. We contacted HTC and received a similar statement: the One S will be staying on Android 4.1 with Sense 4+.

The One S received its last major update in December, which was the aforementioned Android 4.1 / Sense 4+ firmware.

The Galaxy S4 is a great device, but it's not for everyone. Some people, frankly, don't need that much phone. The Stellar is one of more affordable devices under the Galaxy brand, and users on Verizon's network will soon see another update roll out to their devices.

Stellar

The Galaxy Stellar has already made the jump up to Jelly Bean, so this update is relatively mundane by comparison. Still, Verizon advertises a host of other niceties, such as improved hotspot connectivity and better speaker phone audio.
