In Telstra’s most recent public announcement of software updates, they’ve informed users for a range of devices that major updates for their devices are expected to be rolled out before the end of this year.
The Samsung Galaxy S II 4G “Ice Cream Sandwich” update is expected to see Telstra approval on November 26th, with roll out soon after. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus’s update to “Jelly Bean” (Android 4.1, not 4.2) has been delayed and is now expected to begin testing on Friday. On the final Samsung front, the Galaxy S III’s update to “Jelly Bean” (again, 4.1, not 4.2) has been delayed after Samsung found a major bug in the final software. Software testing will have to be redone by Telstra, so expect a few more weeks there.
The HTC One XL’s update to 4.1 is currently being tested by Telstra, and they’re expecting this to go smoothly for a launch before the end of the year. The One S’s update to 4.1 has been completely delayed until early 2013, which shows HTC has little interest in their current range of devices.
Finally, the Motorola RAZR HD is having its Android 4.1 update tested by Telstra at the moment, and roll out is expected before the end of the year. The RAZR M won’t see a major update until early 2013.
