There’s a bit of a mixed bag this week regarding Telstra’s Android handset OTA updates.
Good news for Samsung Galaxy S III owners, as the Android Jelly Bean 4.1 update is progressing ahead of schedule. Telstra were expected to sign off on approval today and deployment of the update is expected within 10 business days (as we reported on Thursday).
Those still running the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G will be less pleased to hear the Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 update has been delayed yet again, due to “failing Google certification”. Telstra has now changed the status of this update to “TBC”, which is beginning to look like “Not Going To Happen”.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus Android Jelly Bean 4.1 update has also been delayed once again by Samsung, so Telstra are stuck waiting on them before being able to proceed any further.
On the HTC front, there has been a slight delay with the Android jelly Bean 4.1 update for the HTC One XL and HTC One S, but they still anticipate both devices will receive the update before the end of the year.
