At least, that’s according to one well-respected Android developer.
The news comes from tech site MoDaCo, which is owned by Paul O’Brien, a renowned developer. There’s no word on where it got the info from, but we’ve no reason to doubt it’s on the money.
The One X will be just the beginning of HTC’s Android Jelly Bean rollout, with the SIM-free version front of the queue. All variants should be Jelly Beaned up by Christmas.
There’s no word on when the One S will get Jelly Bean, but we’d expect it not to be far behind.
The rumoured One X+ will come with Jelly Bean straight out of the box, as will the One XL. The One XL is the 4G version that’s bound for Everything Everywhere’s new EE LTE network.
HTC’s One X is the Taiwanese company’s all-out Android affair, with a huge screen and monster processor. Add Jelly Bean to the mix, with its features like Google Now and Google’s advanced voice search that shames Siri, and you’ve got yourself quite a little package. It’s just a shame we’ve had to wait this long for the upgrade.
Jelly Bean launched back in July. Not many handsets run it yet, but here’s hoping that changes soon.
