HTC and the gang had some gifts to bestow upon its HTC One S users this holiday season. Specifically, the HTC One S received Android 4.1 Jelly Bean across the region of Europe. This massive update comes in at over 600MB large, but with the extensive suite of tools and UI customization that is HTC Sense we didn’t expect a petite package.
HTC Sense itself hasn’t changed much here, but you do get a few new goodies to play around with. The biggest change will be the addition of Google Now and the new Google Search experience, on-device voice input, expanded notifications and Project Butter. Most users in Europe should be seeing the update on their unlocked handsets, but those on carrier editions needn’t worry if nothing is available yet.
Updates are always subject to carrier approval and testing, so you’ll want to take it up with your provider of choice if you are unsure as to why you have yet to receive the upgrade. Be sure to check for the upgrade within your device’s settings menu, and flip that handy WiFi switch to “on” because your bandwidth will be taxed like it’s never been taxed before. Have at it!
