HTC has quite the gift in store for One S users, as it has starting rolling out Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean updates to some global HTC One S handsets. The update was first discovered by the fine folks over at the XDA Developers Forum, and while there are a lot of CID numbers that are apparently supported, not all global One S devices are getting Jelly Bean right away. The same is true for the US One S, which is sold through T-Mobile – we’re not sure when that will be getting Jelly Bean either, sadly.
In any case, it would appear that Jelly Bean is hitting a number of One S handsets across Europe, so it’s time to celebrate. This update has been a long time coming, as HTC moved back the launch a few times throughout 2012. October was a potential release window that was tossed around by HTC at one point, but obviously the Jelly Bean update didn’t arrive in time to meet that goal.
In the end, the HTC One S wasn’t left in the dust, but this update brings more than just Jelly Bean. One S users will also be getting Sense 4+, a new version of HTC’s famous skin. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Sense 4+, as it’s also featured in handsets like the DROID DNA, HTC’s latest attempt at tackling the high-end sector.
So, some One S users have plenty to look forward to today. We’ll be keeping an ear to the ground for more information on when the US One S will be getting Jelly Bean, so keep it tuned here to Android Community for those details. In the meantime, let us know if you’re a global One S user who is now rocking Jelly Bean!
