Taiwanese mobile phone maker HTC Corporation is one of the handset vendors who is already considering upgrading its devices to the new Android flavor.
As soon as Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
was made official last week, owners of handsets running under Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich started to wonder whether their devices would receive an update to it or not.
While no specific info on the smartphones that will taste the update was unveiled so far, HTC did say that it was looking into ways to make it available for some of its devices.
Of course, the OS is still new, yet those who recently purchased an Ice Cream Sandwich handset from HTC should be eligible for an upgrade.
“We are excited about Android Jelly Bean and are planning to support it across a variety of our devices,” HTC said in an official statement, Android Central reports
We are reviewing the software to determine our upgrade plans and schedule, so please stay tuned for more updates on specific device upgrade plans.” Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
will arrive on mobile phones with a nice range of new features and other goodies when compared to what Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has to offer now.
Among these enhancements we can count a slightly modified UI, better animations and improved management of resources, especially of multi-core application processors, enhanced performance, resizable widgets, updated camera app, and the like.
The good news is that HTC, the same as other leading mobile phone makers, will bring the new platform release to current devices as well, although no specific info on the deployment was made official at the moment.
There is a slight chance that, along with the improvements included in Jelly Bean, HTC’s customers will also receive updated features from the company itself. HTC Sense, the renowned interface the phone maker loads on top of Android, might be updated and optimized as well.
