Many HTC fans, from the time they got HTC One SV smartphone, were waiting patiently for a major OS upgrade, and now it seems the wait is over.
Per reports, the HTC One SV is now getting the latest Android refresh, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and users could look forward to the refresh arriving on their phones some time soon.
That Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean is being pushed out for the HTC One SV was first revealed by a French Android publication known as Hot to Come, and because this is just an early report without any certainty, things could change, as expected in the Android roll outs.
However, according to the publication, the update to Android 4.1.2 and Sense+ is 378.71MB in size. Moreover, as expected, the Jelly Bean update will arrive with the popular Google Now service for the HTC One SV along with an all new photo gallery and a new notification bar.
"This update brings a lot of improvements, like Google Now, a new photo gallery and a new notification bar," the report states. Alongside, as far as the device performance is concerned, "the SV One becomes more fluid. In addition, the Quadrant benchmark scores and AnTuTu significantly increase (respectively 4421-5233 and 10631-11261)." Thanks to Project Butter, the One SV has also gotten quite a performance boost.
Moreover, this is a straight indication that yet another mid-range smartphone has received the highly wanted Android Jelly Bean update before the more advanced HTC One X from AT&T.
"It's unclear what this means for other HTC One SV models but typically, software updates roll out in phases which means other variants around Europe should see the update arrive in the next few weeks or so," Gotta Be Mobile adds.
"And while this is certainly music to the ears of HTC One SV owners, it's another sharp blow to the ego of owners of AT&T's HTC One X."
Here's a reminder of the One SV's specifications:
