HTC will release the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for its One X and One S smartphones but the same will not be released for One V and Desire C.
“We’re looking forward to providing our HTC One X and HTC One S customers with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) along with our latest version of HTC Sense,â€ HTC said in its official blog post.
However, the company further added, “In general, devices with 512 MB RAM or less will not be upgraded to Android 4.1. At present, these devices include the HTC One V and the HTC Desire C. As we identify other devices that will not be upgraded, we’ll provide updated information.”
In addition to the HTC One X and HTC One S, HTC is actively reviewing product portfolio to identify candidates to receive Jelly Bean. The blog says, “Our goal is to prioritise review for devices launched in 2012 and then consider our ability to provide updates to products from 2011.”
HTC has however assured that phones not getting Android Jelly Bean will still get software improvements, security fixes, and technical support.
