HTC One X and One XL — Jelly Bean in October, maybe?

HTC One X and One XL users prepare yourselves: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is not far away.

While we don’t have precise roll-out dates yet, a new report reveals that we should start seeing updates for the One X to Jelly Bean from October. As we all know — and don’t necessarily like — software updates are subject to carrier testing, so it might be a couple of months until carrier-branded units receive the Jelly Bean update.

Those with generic devices probably won’t have to wait as long — HTC will likely begin rolling out Jelly Bean in October, subject to the necessary approvals being given (albeit, fewer of them for generics).

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.

    I’ve got the 4.0.4 update, I bought my handset unlocked and using Telstra as my carrier.

    I think it was more closer to late November / December for Telstra to release the update for its users.

  2. 3rd of October according to Telstra

  3. hope it improves multitasking.

  4. 4.0.4 : http://optus.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/102#HTC . I got sick of waiting, currently running JellyBean 4.1.1 on my Rooted HTC 1x. Will revert back when optus deploys JB and see if I like..

  5. Still waiting for HTC to release 4.0.4 on optus branded hox devices 🙁

  6. “so it might be a couple of months until carrier-branded units receive the Jelly Bean update.” – Winner, most optimistic quote of the decade.

  7. Sounds good but pretty sure I will wait for the rumoured One X+ instead. Bring it on HTC

  8. Bring it on! Hopefully Vodafone onto it asap
