Months ago we learned that HTC preparing update to 4.1 Android Jelly Bean for their HTC One X and One S, and the company was commissioned to confirm this during the presentation of the last device that launched in Europe, the HTC One + X. However, Yet we have not seen any terminal update, and suspicions begin to become increasingly stronger.
It seems that the updates to the One are imminent, although the rest of the range has been nothing said so far. However, the latest information on updates to the Taiwanese firm come directly from the HTC website, and it is that in support on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean may be the answer to the question we all have.
What devices will not get Android 4.1?
We work hard to ensure each of our products has the optimal user experience and therefore some products will remain at their current version of Android. In general, devices with 512 MB RAM or less will not be upgraded to Android 4.1. At present, these devices include the HTC One V and the HTC Desire C. As we identify other devices that will not be upgraded, we’ll provide updated information, It should be noted that upgrades are not the same thing as ongoing support. Not being upgraded to 4.1 Android devices will still get software improvements, security fixes, and technical support.
This comes to explain it from always, HTC does not update any terminal without ensuring an optimal user experience, and this implies that HTC Sense to adapt to new versions has some hardware requirements that make that devices with 512 MB of RAM will not receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean officially.
This list It includes One V HTC and HTC Desire C, and in addition HTC shall examine whether other terminals may or not be updated to warn as a result. In addition, they claim that, although the Android version is not up-to-date, if they will continue to receive support in terms of interface enhancements, patches security and solving technical problems.
Another case more that could explain the decline of HTC, and is that, however much that HTC Sense need resources, a policy that involves leave terminals presented during this year without update It is not acceptable with their customers, even more so when the community has already ported several ROMs with Jelly Bean to different devices with similar hardware, and even the same as HTC discards.
