Here’s some good news for all HTC One S users patiently waiting to be treated to the Jelly Bean update.
Per reports, the HTC One S is currently getting the highly anticipated Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update from the company that will be coming with all the Android goodies expected from a new refresh.
While it was stated earlier last month that the new update had started reaching out to users of the HTC One S under Telus, and then a few weeks ago, when it was reported that the same update was heading for the same phone under Three UK, the new update is now arriving for all those in Canada under both Bell and Virgin.
The information was revealed by an unnamed tipster writing to Mobile Syrup. An internal memo has also been obtained, and Mobile Syrup states: “The short description says that OS 4.1 will bring ‘an improved and refined user experience.’ Can’t argue with that … when midnight strikes make sure you check your device: Menu >> Settings >> About device >> Software update >> Update.”
The Android-based HTC One S smartphone was first released about a year ago with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It features a 4.3-inch qHD touchscreen display, an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 16GB storage, and Beats Audio integration
“HTC One S boasts a head-turning design on our thinnest phone yet. With beauty both inside and out, our new 4.3-inch display delivers a rich viewing experience like you’ve never seen before. You’ll love the camera that captures every moment (even in low light) with crisp, vivid, beautiful photos. Plus, with Beats Audio™ you hear authentic, deep sound with true, finely-tuned details,” the official page states.
It has also been reported that HTC will be offering upgrades, especially the latest Sense 5.0 UI, to some of its existing devices in the next few months, and the list also includes the HTC One S. Other devices set for the upgrade are HTC One X, One X+, and the HTC Butterfly.
However, some features enabled by the new HTC One hardware will not be available in the software updates.
