Australian carrier Telstra has just refreshed its OS upgrade scheduler with new details on upcoming software updates for some of the smartphones in its portfolio.

There are good news and bad news, but mostly bad. It appears that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for Motorola RAZR M has been pushed back to early 2013.

Another Jelly Bean update for the Motorola RAZR HD has arrived at Telstra and is in test. The carrier is expected to approve it on November 26.

Taiwanese handset maker HTC has delayed the submission of the Jelly Bean update for One S, which means the upgrade won’t be going live until early 2013.

HTC is also expected to submit the update for One XL by the end of this month. Telstra estimates it will be able to deploy it before the end of the year.

The good news is that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for Samsung Galaxy S II 4G has already been received and is on track for a November 26 approval.

On the other hand, Samsung delayed the submission of the Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Nexus once again. It is now expected to arrive on November 23, though further delays are possible.

The South Korean company has also announced it has identified a “showstopper bug” on the Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean firmware that the carrier had already completed its testing on. This means that a firmware submission will be required and a release date for this one has yet to be confirmed.

Last but not least, Telstra has recently approved the PR 3.1 Belle Refresh update for Nokia N8 and expects to kick off the rollout of the upgrade by November 29.

That’s about all the updates recently made by Telstra to its OS upgrade scheduler, so stay tuned for more info on the matter and make sure to check the carrier’s official announcement here.
