HTC Details Jelly Bean Update, 512MB RAM Phones Not Invited

By 04:56 Thu, 15 Jul 2021 Comments

HTC finally shed some light on the Jelly Bean update roll-out and compatibility. Unfortunately there are several devices that won’t acquire the Android 4.1 treatment and will be stuck on Ice Cream Sandwich forever.

According to HTC devices with 512Mega Bytes (MB) Random-Access Memory (RAM) or less are incompatible with Jelly Bean and won’t be updated. Just like Sony assumed a while ago, HTC believes the Ice Cream Sandwich provides better user experience than Jelly Bean. This means the One V and Desire C are out of the loop already.

They won't be the only ones either. HTC is prioritizing the Jelly Bean development on devices released within 2012. When it's done with them, the company will consider releasing Jelly Bean for some of its 2011 phones. Not to be but it is highly unlikely.

There is still no info on when the first global Jelly Bean updates will come, but the roll out for the One X and One S has already started, so we guess the others shouldn't be that far either.
