HTC said that the Jelly Bean update would be rolling out to two of its high-end Android handsets. The update would be rolling out from the middle of October to December. Sadly, the Taiwanese firm failed to mention when exactly the update would be available to the two phones, but at least we have an idea when it would be pushed out.
The update would also be rolling out to another high-end handset at approximately the same time frame. This smartphone is the One XL, which is the 4G version of the One X.
Although it’s good news most of HTC’s phones belonging to the One series will be receiving the Jelly Bean update, Samsung Beat the Taiwanese firm to the punch. It has started to roll out the update to the Galaxy S3 in Europe, starting with Poland.
HTC has confirmed that the update would be rolling out to two of its high-end handsets, but it is yet to confirm if the update will be rolling out to the One V. However, we won’t be surprised if the One V doesn’t get Jelly Bean treatment. At times, the phone was sluggish with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) running, which suggests its hardware may not be able to run Jelly Bean.
Although HTC told CNET UK that Jelly Bean will be rolling out to the One X and One V from the middle of October to December, we’re still not banking on this. In the past, the company promised the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Desire HD, but cancelled it in July. Don’t be surprised if the Jelly Bean update doesn’t roll out to the two high-end handsets as promised.
