HTC plans to push Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to its popular line of One smartphones. HTC Global Online Communications Manager Jeff Gordon issued the following statement to The Verge:
“We know HTC fans are excited to get their hands on Google’s latest version of Android. At this point in time, we can confirm that we have plans to upgrade our HTC One X, HTC One XL and HTC One S to Jelly Bean. Please stay tuned for more updates regarding device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Jelly Bean.”
It is worth noting the One V is missing from the company’s update list.
HTC is known for quickly sending the latest Android releases to its offerings, where as other manufacturers tend to drag their feet. Ice Cream Sandwich notably launched in October 2011, but the latest numbers indicate it is only powering 11 percent of Android devices. Let’s hope Jelly Bean eyes a speedier rollout.
