Unfortunate news for HTC One S owners: your device will no longer be receiving OTA Android updates. That means that the phone will forever remain on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean unless owners look elsewhere for custom ROMs to grab the latest version of Android, 4.2.2 and above. It certainly isn’t the best news, but it’s a sign of good things to come with the Google Play Edition HTC One, which will most likely receive updates very soon after a new OS release by Google. Hit the break for the press release by HTC.
“We can confirm that the HTC One S will not receive further Android OS updates and will remain on the current version of Android and HTC Sense. We realize this news will be met with disappointment by some, but our customers should feel confident that we have designed the HTC One S to be optimized with our amazing camera and audio experiences.”
