HTC has already confirmed their impressive new HTC One series of smartphone will receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean soon, but not quite yet. Today an update has been confirmed for the folks enjoying the HTC One S and it's bringing the handset to Android 4.0.4 and a new and improved Sense 4.1 UI. Head on past the break for full details.

Reports are flooding in that the international and European HTC One S has received the above mentioned update starting late last night. This is a rather small update bringing you from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 to 4.0.4, but it also brings the new and improved Sense UI changes. They've tweaked the menu button mainly, but we already knew that.

The 157MB update is rolling out to smartphones as we speak over the air, and users should already be seeing it -- or they will shortly. Just like the recent HTC One X update you can now customize and remap the multitask key to better suite your needs. Many have made that their menu button, with long press acting as multitasking.

As usual HTC is promising some performance enhancements and tweaks, and they've claimed to have fixed a few pesky but ongoing bugs, although we don't have a full changelog. The camera should also be faster and improved, but sadly there's also mention of some EA Games bloatware added too. Head to settings and check for updates or just wait as it should arrive shortly. Now it's T-Mobile's turn.
