When it rains Jelly Beans, it pours Jelly Beans. Samsung’s Galaxy S III on Verizon will be seeing its update arrive tomorrow, but for HTC fans who have been using the EVO 4G LTE on Sprint, their own Jelly Bean update has already become available.
EVO 4G LTE system software 3.15.651.16 delivers Android 4.1.1, outfitted with the latest Sense 4+ UI enhancements. Even though the update is currently accessible for EVO 4G LTE owners, for the moment you’ll have to pull this one down yourself, which is just as simple as checking for updates through your phone’s settings menu. In case you forget about it, Sprint will still be doing the old OTA push, but that won’t be going down until the first week of the new year.
Beyond everything you should know to expect from Jelly Bean itself, HTC’s update delivers some calendar improvements, WiFi bugfixes, and lets you set custom ringtones. You’ll also see better support for Beats Audio integration, adding the Tap and Go mode HTC first introduced with the release of the One X+, for quick pairing with compatible Beats speaker systems.
