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.
