It looks like HTC is going to quickly jump on the Android 4.1 update bandwagon for three of its smartphone models. The company has confirmed that the the HTC One XL and the HTC One S will all receive a software update that will bring them up to the latest version of the Android OS, code named Jelly Bean.
HTC sent a statement to Engadget which officially announced their Jelly Bean upgrade plans for those smartphone models. In addition, the site has also confirmed that the US wireless carriers AT&T and T-Mobile, and the Canadian carrier Rogers, will provide those updates to customers who own those smartphones. There"s no word on when those software updates will actually happen.
Previous unconfirmed rumors from an Australian carrier indicated that the HTC One XL and the One S would get the update, but this is the first time that HTC itself has confirmed that the Jelly Bean upgrade for three of its models are now in the works.
Google has already released the Android 4.1 upgrade for all Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ devices and the Nexus S. Google has plans to offer the Jelly Bean update for the Motorola Xoom tablet at some point.
