Samsung, HTC Android Jelly Bean for SA

The HTC One X is scheduled for testing the update to Android 4.1 “Jelly Bean” with Vodacom, and MTN have provided a list of devices that will receive the upgraded to Jelly Bean.

Mike Fairon, head of product and innovation at MTN SA said that the following devices will get the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system on their network:

  • Samsung Galaxy S3;
  • Samsung Galaxy S Advance;
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0;
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1;
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus;
  • Samsung Galaxy Note;
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1; and
  • HTC One X.

Fairon said that the HTC One X is the only HTC device that will get the Jelly Bean update.

However, it should be noted that the HTC One S, which is the only other HTC device launched in SA set to get Jelly Bean, is not offered by MTN.

Fairon said that MTN is unfortunately not in a position to release the dates for when the upgrades will be available to consumers, but will make the necessary announcements to media when there are developments in this regard

Vodacom was also not able to offer a release date, saying that they don’t have a confirmed date on the availability of the software update to customers. “We will notify customers when the software is available,” Vodacom said.

A Cell C spokesperson told MyBroadband that on its network, users are able to upgrade their Galaxy Nexus devices to Android Jelly Bean over the air.

“Upgrades for the Galaxy SIII should be available before the end of the year,” Cell C said. “The availability of the upgrade for the HTC One X will be announced closer to the time.”
