While for now it is just a rumor, leaked documents would seem to point to the HTC EVO 4G LTE getting an over the air update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean sometime today.
If the rumors are true, the OTA update would bring the HTC EVO 4G LTE’s firmware version to 3.15.651.11, and the Android version to 4.1.1. Another later apparent leak stated that the update will bring improvements to Wi-Fi Authentication and Calendar Reminders, as well as fixing issues with personalized ringtones and hyperlink routing from the Calendar to the Phone app.
These rumors were sparked by the image below which, if not fake, would indicate a fairly slow planned rollout of the OTA update between now and November 27.
There’s only one problem. The same leak that mentioned the other software updates also mentioned Ice Cream Sandwich, not Jelly Bean. We were left to wonder if the leaked image was wrong, or if it was a copy / paste mistake. Calls to Sprint technical support, however, seemed to confirm that a Jelly Bean update is on the way.
