After waiting the summer out, it appears HTC (2498) will release Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the One X next month for non-carrier branded models, according to MoDaCo. Don’t expect stock Android, though. HTC will skin Jelly Bean with its Sense UI, of course. Carrier models like the AT&T version should receive Jelly Bean by Christmas. Specific release dates are still up in the air, but the site does also mention that the rumored HTC One X+ with a 1.6GHz Tegra 3 processor, 1,800 mAh battery, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage is still forthcoming and will ship with Jelly Bean installed. What about an update for T-Mobile’s HTC One S? There isn’t an update on that front, but it should be in the works as the smartphone is still relatively new.
