The One S is getting an over-the-air update today that brings your phone up to Android 4.0.4 and also upgrades it to Sense 4.1. Beyond a change in the version numbers, there are many other great things coming with this update.

Think Sense is currently slowing down your phone? The newest version is supposedly less resource heavy and should speed up your overall phone experience. Other new features coming to the Dutch and German update include the EA Gaming Hub and a diagnostic tool, described as a “remote control unit to repair by HTC”. That’s not all, the camera experience is sharper in the new update and many bug fixes are making their way to this OTA software upgrade. As you can tell, this is a pretty significant update. The bad news, this upgrade is only for German and Dutch users, at least at the moment.

For those One S users located in other parts of the world, there has been no official word on when Android 4.0.4 will hit your handset, but you can bet it won’t be terribly far behind. Good news all around, even if many countries are going to have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on the HTC One S Android 4.0.4 update.

The only thing that would have made this better would have been an official jump to Jelly Bean. Of course you can always go the unofficial route and skip to Jelly Bean through CM10.

Have a German or Dutch HTC One S? If so, let us know how the upgrade went and if your phone is performing better with the new update.
