HTC One X and One S will get updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean this month

Now that the HTC One X+ has been introduced, we can endlessly debate whether this is what the original One X should have been in order for it to actually be able to compete against Samsung’s Galaxy S III. One important detail about the One X+ is that it will launch running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Though if you own a One X (or One S, for that matter), there’s some good news too. You may not be able to get the hardware improvements in the + version of your device unless you shell out a truckload of cash once again, but on the software side things are different.

HTC has promised to start rolling out updates to Jelly Bean for the One X and One S later this month. Of course, this doesn’t mean that all One X and One S devices ever sold will be running JB come October 31, since the usual caveats about carrier-branded versions do apply. But at least for unlocked units, this month should be the one in which they taste Jelly Beans for the first time.
