We just heard from HTC about the fate of Jelly Bean updates for a number of its Android smartphones. While the outlook isn’t sunny for all of them, the company’s very latest handsets should be on-track for seeing Android 4.1 updates. Those confirmed to make the leap to Jelly Bean include the One X+ and the One VX, which we’ve known for some time now would be finding homes at AT&T in the States. Today, AT&T gives us the rest of the story on just how this pair will arrive, with sales starting this Friday, November 16.

We’ve taken some time to go hands-on with both of these phones, and largely like what we’ve seen. While the One X+ doesn’t address every last concern we had with the original One X, it definitely shows the manufacturer stepping up its game a bit, and the One X+ feels noticeably faster than its predecessor. The One VX, as a mid-range device, is a little less impressive overall, but it’s still got some solid hardware, and knowing that it’s confirmed to get Jelly Bean is a big plus.

AT&T will sell the One X+ for just about $200 on-contract. The One VX can be had for considerably less, with a price tag of nearly $50 on-contract. The One X+ runs a 1.7GHz Tegra 3, has a 4.7-inch 720p screen, and offers 64GB of internal storage. The One VX has a dual-core Snapdragon S4, a 4.5-inch qHD display, and supports microSD for storage expansion. If you don’t want to wait until Friday, pre-orders for the One X+ open as of tomorrow.
