HTC says farewell to the One S, telling customers to focus on the camera and speakers instead of the lack of updates.
If you read that and thought of the HTC One, you can continue breathing and caressing your new smartphone. In the past, HTC has used the name multiple times, and have in their collection the One X, One XL, One S, One V and One, all rather different from each other. However, HTC has now shrunk the litter and said that the One S will no longer be receiving updates. Those awaiting Android Jelly Bean 4.2 or HTC's Sense 5 UI are, unfortunately, out of luck.
A spokesperson for the company confirmed that the phone will no longer be supporting Android and Sense updates, and said, "We realize this news will be met with disappointment by some, but our customers should feel confident that we have designed the HTC One S to be optimized with our amazing camera and audio experiences." Fortunately, for those upset costumers there will always be people who will continue by building their own ROMs for the phone, especially as the HTC One X is still on the update track.
