The update to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean for the HTC One XL has started rolling out in Taiwan and Singapore today. This makes perfect sense, seeing as how the One XL is the LTE-capable ‘brother’ of the One X for which the JB update started going out at the end of November.
The HTC One XL has a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor instead of the quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 seen in the One X. Everything else though is identical.
The update to JB is rolling out over-the-air. As such, when your device finds it, it will pop up a notification (like the one you can see in the image above), asking you to download and install it (yet over Wi-Fi only, since the update comes in at a whopping 657.98 MB).
Of course, if you haven’t received this notification yet and are impatient, you can always hunt for the Check Now option in Software Updates in Settings > About, and maybe you’ll get lucky.
After applying the update, you’ll be running software version 3.17.707.1, and Sense 4+ on top of JB.
Aside from the usual bits that come with Jelly Bean, this update also brings with it an improved Camera UI, a new landing page and Event / Map view in Gallery, as well as various power management improvements.
AT&T’s HTC One X is basically just a confusingly rebranded One XL, so this may mean that we’ll see the Jelly Bean update roll out to that device too pretty soon. How soon, though, depends entirely on AT&T and its software update approval process. So (continue to) be patient.
