HTC confirmed this with TechRadar. A spokesperson said in a statement, “We can confirm that the HTC One S will not receive further Android OS updates and will remain on the current version of Android and HTC Sense. 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.”
Unfortunately, this means that the One S would be stuck running Android 4.1. Android 4.2 is out of the question. Although this may be bad news for you, at least you heard it directly from HTC.
