HTC One S owners in Canada, at least those on the Telus network, finally have a reason to rejoice. After pushing back the January 2013 update schedule, the HTC One S will now be receiving the official update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, along with an UI update to HTC Sense 4+.
MobileSyrup reports that the Telus website has now been updated with the software upgrade information, along with them also receiving tips from One S owners about the update reaching their phones OTA. If you haven’t got the OTA notification, you can try Settings – About device – Software update to find the download.
According to the Telus Android software update page, the “benefits and enhancements” featured in this update include -
- Actionable notifications will show up in the notification pane
- You can now easily share videos and photos using Android Beam
- Improved device stability
Unlike the Telus HTC One X Jelly Bean update, in this case, there has been no mention of Google Now. I’m not sure if that’s just an oversight, or whether the HTC One S will not be receiving the Google Now feature. If you’ve got the official update, do let us know about this.
