HTC is confirming that the HTC One X and One S will receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates at some point in the future.

If you’ve been wondering whether or not the HTC One X and One S are getting updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, wonder no longer — the answer is yes, sometime. We just received the following statement from Jeff Gordon, HTC's Global Online Communications Manager:

“We know HTC fans are excited to get their hands on Google’s latest version of Android. At this point in time, we can confirm that we have plans to upgrade our HTC One X, HTC One XL and HTC One S to Jelly Bean. Please stay tuned for more updates regarding device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Jelly Bean.”

Up until now, HTC had been mum on the subject of Jelly Bean updates, and the news is doubtlessly welcomed by the legions of One series owners out there with brand new devices. Unfortunately, the company's omission of the One V from the list doesn't bode well for that device's prospects. Motorola, Samsung, LG — the ball is now in your court.
