Alongside today's HTC One X+ announcement comes the news that HTC will upgrade some of its earlier One series phones to the latest versions of Android and Sense. The Sense 4+ and Jelly Bean update is scheduled to hit One S, X and XL phones later this month, and HTC tells us that every feature of the One X+ that doesn't require additional hardware will be made available on these devices. Note, as ever, that carrier-specific versions of these phones may take a little while longer to see this update.
Sadly, there's no mention of the One V -- or any other existing HTC phones -- in today's announcement. It's unlikely HTC will leave its entire back catalog in the lurch, but the lack of any announcements for earlier devices isn’t encouraging news for owners of these phones.
Nevertheless, it's a welcome development for the many One S, One X or One XL owners out there.
