Android 4.1.1 aka Jelly Bean will become available for HTC Global One S in the near future. Unfortunately, we still don’t have an inkling as to when this version of Jelly Bean will become available for the One S from T-Mobile USA.
The new gadgets that became updated are marked with WorldWide English and are primarily sold in Europe. This is the same update that was first mentioned in October, it’s rumored to feature resizable widgets, Google Now personal assistant, and improved voice search. The new upgrade is a total of 612 MB.
HTC usually take their time when updating their smartphones, it doesn’t help that they customize their products with Sense skin, which enhances software updates. And that’s not the only factor that delays the process. Smartphone carriers also have to approve the updates.
Fortunately, HTC Global One S isn’t the only product that’s getting a generous upgrade after the holidays. Sony Xperia T received Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update. This particular upgrade was made specifically for the Xperia T and Xperia TL (from AT&T) models. Highlights from this upgrade includes longer battery life, more wallpapers, a new homescreen launcher, new applications for movie and album features, and a ClearAudio+ feature that allows people to boost their audio sound.
Droid Razr for Verizon also received an upgrade for Android 4.1. Highlights for this upgrade includes Google Now, Project Butter UI, voice search(which is similar to Apple’s Siri), and improved notification system that allows users to multi-task while making phone calls. This upgrade is also available for Droid Razr Maxx users.
Android is growing and this holiday season has brought with it a new batch of upgrades for the most popular devices.
