HTC officially confirms Jelly Bean for HTC One Series, but still doesn’t mention HTC EVO 4G LTE

jelly bean1 - for some reason we don't have an alt tag hereFollowing yesterday’s news from Telstra that certain HTC devices would indeed be getting Jelly Bean, HTC has officially come out and said which devices will get it for sure. In a statement to Engadget, HTC said:

We know HTC fans are excited to get their hands on Google’s latest version of Android. At this point in time, we can confirm that we have plans to upgrade our HTC One X, HTC One XL and HTC One S to Jelly Bean. Please stay tuned for more updates regarding device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Jelly Bean.

While this is exciting for some HTC fans, others are still left with questions. For example, what about the HTC One V? It might be a low-end device, but it’s technically still part of HTC’s flagship lineup. And also, what about the HTC EVO 4G LTE? Technically, it’s still considered one of HTC’s flagship phones in the US, alongside AT&T’s HTC One X. Since it’s essentially the same device, but rebranded for Sprint, why wasn’t it included in this announcement? And then there’s also the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE on Verizon.

I’ve reached out to one of my sources from HTC for clarification, but I don’t know if the company will be willing to confirm anything else at this point. Of course, as soon as I hear more, I’ll pass it along to you.
