An insider recently confirmed that many HTC devices were going to get the Sense 5 and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. But when we speak of the HTC One S, these updates have not yet been confirmed.
These unofficial updates have been confirmed by a developer from inside HTC as well. He claims these updates are coming out for many HTC devices such as HTC One X, HTC One X+, Droid DNA, HTC Butterfly, HTC EVO 4G LTE, and the Droid Incredible 4G LTE. No news on when these updates will be out though but it is most likely going to be after the HTC One.
Even though we can’t get any confirmed news on the updates for the HTC One S, there is absolutely no reason to rule it out. HTC did announce that the global version of the One S was going to have Sense 5 features. The only problem is that HTC has backed out from promises many times in the past. This is just a sign that any updates for the One S could be very far away, especially for owners from the United States.
This is evident from the fact that T-Mobile subscribers have just got the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the HTC One S. This just means that the Sense 5 and Android 4.2 updates won’t be available any time soon. Even when it comes to the global version, they might not be out any time soon.
Even though the source is a trusted one who hasn’t been wrong in the past, we can’t really confirm whether or not the updates will be out any time soon until there is an official announcement by the company. Even after that, we can’t really be certain until it actually does come out.
