HTC prepping Android 4.1 update for One XL and One S

Among the latest phones destined for Android 4.1 are HTC's One XL and One S, according to Australian carrier Telstra.


Users of HTC's One XL and One S phones are on the Android 4.1 update list, at least in Australia.

An update page posted by Australian mobile carrier Telstra points to an Android 4.1 'Jelly Bean' update in progress for both phones. The carrier says that HTC is preparing the update but has yet to confirm a date in which it will be sent to Telstra for testing.

No further beans were spilled as to a possible release date or availability for other HTC devices or other carriers around the world. But the handset maker has revealed that it's currently playing around with Jelly Bean, according to AndroidCentral.

At last month's Google I/O conference, HTC said "we are excited about Android Jelly Bean and are planning to support it across a variety of our devices. We are reviewing the software to determine our upgrade plans and schedule, so please stay tuned for more updates on specific device upgrade plans."

CNET contacted HTC for comment and will update the story when we get more information.

Jelly Bean is slowly trickling out into the Android landscape.

Google announced last week that its various Nexus devices could receive the Android 4.1 update as of July 10. The company's new Nexus 7 tablet automatically comes with the new Android flavor out of the box.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
