HTC Says Jelly Bean On the Way for One X, One XL, One S
HTC confirmed that it is preparing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for several of its devices. "We know HTC fans are excited to get their hands on Google's latest version of Android," said spokesperson Jeff Gordon in a statement to The Verge. "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." HTC didn't specify if the U.S. variants of these devices will be updated or not. The One X is sold by AT&T and the One S is sold by T-Mobile. Noticeably absent from the list is HTC's most affordable One series device, the One V. Few other handset makers have come forward with their plans for Android 4.1 updates.
We're live from HTC's event, where they are expected to announce new phones. Rumors whisper of a new series of phones called "One".
HTC's flagship Android smartphone for 2012 impresses in most respects. Here's what we like and what we don't at first glance.
The HTC One S is a slightly toned down version of the One, but still has its own identity. The One S, coming to T-Mobile USA, will surely appeal to many with its good looks and capable features.
HTC's flagship device for 2012 is the One X. With it and its siblings, HTC hopes to revitalize its position in the smartphone market.
HTC's One S for T-Mobile is an easy phone to recommend for anyone who loves Android, speed, and solid performance from their smartphone. Does it have any faults?
