HTC One S getting 4.1 this year

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Same feature set as One X and X+


It turns out that the runner up for HTC’s Android crown, a six month old HTC One S is also getting a serving of Jelly Bean 4.1.

HTC’s European spokesperson has confirmed that HTC has been cooking the One S Jelly Bean update that it plans to launch this year. It was always the plan to launch the Android 4.1 update for the HTC One S and now we have at least a rough time fame to wrap our thoughts around.

Since most of Europe and USA are getting into Xmas frenzy before and around December 24th we can only hope that the update comes before the holiday season.

Everything we had a chance to see on the HTC One X+, that ships with Jelly bean 4.1 out of the box, will come to HTC One S. This was confirmed by the spokesperson. The focus, of course, is on Google Now.

HTC will bring the Power Saver feature set that can down clock the CPU, reduce the display brightness, turn off vibration, and put the data connection to sleep when the screen is off. Obviously, this should help you extend battery life.

The HTC One S is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 MSM8260A dual-core Krait, a chip that is very power aware and for once can really hope that optimization will improve battery life.  

If we would have to suggest the timeframe, the date would have to be in mid-December, before Christmas, but at the same time, there are no guarantees as these updates tend to slip.
