HTC One X & One S Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update confirmed

HTC confirms that Google's new OS update will feature on both the One X and One S

HTC One X and One S will both get the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, however, the Taiwanese firm is yet to announce the update for its other handsets

HTC has confirmed that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will finally be rolled out to two of its most popular handsets, the HTC One X and One S.

A HTC spokesperson told T3 that they had no “updates at this stage” with regards to when exactly it will be rolled out, however, the firm plans to make a statement on the matter soon.

The Ice Cream Sandwich-toting HTC One X is the company’s flagship handset, so it's long been suspected that it will get the Jelly Bean update, however, nothing was ever officially confirmed – until now.

"We know HTC fans are excited to get their hands on Google's latest version of Android," reads a HTC statement.

"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."

The confirmation follows on from a leak by Australian network Telstra, which confirmed that the update was going to be made available on the devices last Thursday.

However, we’re yet to hear which other HTC handsets are also in line for an upgrade, including the budget HTC One V.
