HTC recently updated its Frequently Asked Questions page that outlines which devices will receive an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The manufacturer said that “in general, devices with 512MB of RAM or less will not be upgraded to Android 4.1” Jelly Bean. That means owners of the HTC One V and the HTC Desire C can expect their upgrades to stop with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. HTC said it will update its customers on the other devices that won’t receive Jelly Bean in the future.

Wondering when¬†you’ll get the update? Here’s what HTC has to say:

There are many aspects to the software development process that make it difficult for us to give specifics on upgrade timing. As a global company, we work with a number of carrier partners in various regions to ensure a great user experience with every upgrade. Each region and carrier partner has unique requirements that necessitate customized testing. Only after HTC and its partners have successfully completed the final testing will the software be released.
