MoDaCo’s Paul O’Brien has confirmed HTC will begin to rollout Jelly Bean to their unlocked smartphones and tablets in October. Additionally, the company intends to have the software update rolled out to all handsets, including carrier branded phones, before Christmas.
All this information comes before we’ve seen any leaked builds for the HTC One X or XL. Google has acknowledged HTC and other OEMs have had the Android 4.1 PDK since before the software’s June debut. Currently, no confirmed date for when the HTC One S will get the upgrade but seeing as it’s internally similar to the One XL, that should come soon after.
