Android 4.1 Upgrade List (3)

Android 4.1 Upgrade List: Devices Where Jelly Bean Looks Unlikely

While there's no final word about upgrade plans for these devices, known facts and circumstances make their odds of an Android 4.1 upgrade appear highly unlikely.

• Acer Liquid E: This early Acer phone got Froyo and then got forgotten. Acer hasn't said a word about the device in years; the phone didn't even receive the 2.3 Gingerbread upgrade, let alone the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich bump. So Jelly Bean? Yeah -- probably not.

• Casio G'zOne Commando: The curiously named G'zOne Commando hasn't come up since the days of Gingerbread. With no mention of ICS, the odds of Jelly Bean sure don't look good.

• Dell Streak: Dell's original Streak never even saw Android 2.3. Add that to the fact that the device has been discontinued, and an Android 4.1 seems highly unlikely.

• HTC Aria: One of AT&T's earliest Android efforts, the HTC Aria was left behind after its upgrade to Android 2.2. With no Gingerbread love, let alone Ice Cream Sandwich, it'd be a shock if AT&T were to send any Jelly Bean treats the Aria's way.

• HTC Desire: HTC made it clear its original Desire phone wasn't fit for Gingerbread in its opinion; the manufacturer left the device behind at ICS and shows no signs of suddenly popping in with Jelly Bean support.

• HTC Desire S: HTC hemmed and hawed on its Android 4.0 upgrade for the Desire S and eventually released it only in a do-it-yourself form geared toward developers, saying it believed "the majority of customers [would] be happiest maintaining their current experience." That sentiment doesn't exactly bode well for future OS upgrades.

• HTC Desire Z: This HTC phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• HTC Droid Incredible: This HTC phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• HTC EVO 4G: This HTC phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• HTC EVO Shift 4G: This HTC phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• HTC G2: This HTC phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• HTC Inspire 4G: This HTC phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• HTC Legend: HTC has shown no signs of upgrading its HTC Legend phone even to Gingerbread, so an upgrade all the way to Jelly Bean appears very improbable.

• HTC Magic: Like the Legend, the Magic has gotten no Gingerbread love, so an Android 4.1 upgrade is iffy at best.

• HTC Merge: This HTC phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• HTC MyTouch 3G: With no Gingerbread, the MyTouch 3G's chances of a Jelly Bean upgrade are pretty bleak.

• HTC MyTouch 3G Slide: HTC and T-Mobile didn't even bring Froyo to the MyTouch 3G Slide until April of 2011. There's been no sign of Gingerbread or Ice Cream Sandwich since then -- so you probably shouldn't get your hopes up for Jelly Bean now.

• HTC MyTouch 4G: This HTC phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• HTC MyTouch 4G Slide: This HTC phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• HTC Rhyme: Like with the Desire S, HTC hemmed and hawed on its Android 4.0 upgrade for the Rhyme and eventually released it only in a do-it-yourself form geared toward developers, saying it believed "the majority of customers [would] be happiest maintaining their current experience." That sentiment doesn't exactly bode well for future OS upgrades.

• HTC Wildfire: The Wildfire is yet another older phone that was left behind at Froyo. There's been no official statement saying the device won't get Ice Cream Sandwich, but a jump from 2.2 to 4.1? Not the greatest odds in the world, particularly with HTC having confirmed the newer Wildfire S phone wouldn't even get ICS due to its limited hardware resources.

• Huawei Ascend: With Froyo still running on the original Huawei Ascend, an Android 4.1 upgrade is as iffy as it gets.

• Kyocera Echo: Kyocera has been ignoring its Echo since the days of Gingerbread. Jelly Bean? Don't count on it.

• LG Ally: This lower-end Verizon phone got Froyo and got forgotten. Big Red would deliver a big surprise if it suddenly offered Jelly Bean to this very dated device.

• LG Apex: This U.S. Cellular phone is still stuck on Froyo. No Gingerbread, no Ice Cream Sandwich -- probably no Jelly Bean, either.

• LG Optimus One: LG -- which has a pretty embarrassing record of Android upgrades in the first place -- hasn't mentioned its Optimus One phones since the Gingerbread era. With Ice Cream Sandwich quickly fading in the rear-view mirror, the appearance of the Easter bunny seems more likely than the appearance of Jelly Bean. (The Optimus One phones include the Optimus S on Sprint, the Optimus T on T-Mobile, and the LG Vortex on Verizon, as well as the Optimus C on Cricket Wireless, the Optimus M on MetroPCS, the Optimus U on U.S. Cellular, and the Optimus V on Virgin Mobile.)

• LG Phoenix: This LG phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• LG Revolution: This LG phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• LG Thrill 4G: This LG phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• Motorola Backflip: The Backflip never even received Froyo, let alone Gingerbread or Ice Cream Sandwich. While Moto hasn't officially gone on the record about this phone's future, a 4.1 upgrade certainly doesn't seem like a strong possibility.

• Motorola Bravo: Another one of AT&T's early Android devices, the Bravo's lack of both Gingerbread and ICS support puts it squarely in the "not bloody likely" column for any Jelly Bean love.

• Motorola Cliq: Motorola's first Cliq has remained stagnant at the 2.1 level -- a sign that isn't very encouraging, to say the least, when it comes to the 4.1 release.

• Motorola Defy: With no Gingerbread or Ice Cream Sandwich under its belt, it'd defy common logic if Motorola were to jump back and update its Defy to Jelly Bean.

• Motorola Droid (original): Sadly, the original Motorola Droid, now approaching its third birthday, has likely passed its window for major OS upgrades. The Droid -- which has quite limited hardware compared to today's baseline smartphone specs -- never received Gingerbread or Ice Cream Sandwich. As such, its odds of an Android 4.1 upgrade sure don't look good.

• Motorola Droid X: The first-gen Droid X never got ICS, and Moto went on the record as saying the newer Droid X2 phone wasn't fit for that upgrade. That pretty much tells you everything you need to know about the phone's Jelly Bean chances.

• Motorola Flipside: A lack of even Gingerbread doesn't bode well for the Flipside's chances of any type of Jelly Bean treat.

• Motorola Milestone: The original Milestone is the international version of the original Droid, and it's in the same exact boat as its U.S. sibling: Now approaching its third birthday and having been passed over for Gingerbread and ICS, the Milestone's odds of an Android 4.1 upgrade don't look good.

• Motorola Milestone 2: The international version of the Droid 2 is in the same boat as its U.S. brother -- and that boat is sinking fast.

• Motorola Milestone X: The Milestone X is the international version of the Droid X and, like that phone, has a snowball's chance in hell of getting a 4.1 upgrade.

• Orange San Francisco: This confusingly named handset (it's available only in Europe) barely even got Android 2.2. Take-home message? If you hold your breath for Jelly Bean, you'll probably pass out long before it arrives.

• Pantech Crossover: This phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• Samsung Acclaim: Given that the Acclaim has not gotten even Gingerbread, its Jelly Bean prospects don't look so good.

• Samsung Continuum: After endless rumors of a Froyo upgrade, this neglected Verizon/Samsung phone was stuck on Android 2.1 (Eclair) until February of 2012. Jelly Bean? Yeah...don't count on it.

• Samsung Droid Charge: This Samsung phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• Samsung Galaxy Ace: This Samsung phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• Samsung Galaxy Apollo: Apollo users are still tasting Froyo these days, so you can probably forget about Jelly Bean -- let alone Ice Cream Sandwich or Gingerbread -- for this device.

• Samsung Galaxy Fit: This Samsung phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• Samsung Galaxy Gio: This Samsung phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• Samsung Galaxy Mini: This Samsung phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• Samsung Galaxy Player (original): This Samsung media device never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• Samsung Galaxy Prevail: This Samsung phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• Samsung Galaxy S Plus: Samsung listed the Galaxy S Plus alongside the regular Galaxy S as a device that would receive only an enhanced 2.3-level firmware upgrade with some Ice Cream Sandwich-like features. That clearly does not bode well for the phone's Jelly Bean upgrade chances.

• Samsung Galaxy S SCL: Samsung listed the Galaxy S SCL alongside the regular Galaxy S as a device that would receive only an enhanced 2.3-level firmware upgrade with some Ice Cream Sandwich-like features. That clearly does not bode well for the phone's Jelly Bean upgrade chances.

• Samsung Galaxy W: Samsung listed the Galaxy W alongside the regular Galaxy S as a device that would receive only an enhanced 2.3-level firmware upgrade with some Ice Cream Sandwich-like features. That clearly does not bode well for the phone's Jelly Bean upgrade chances.

• Samsung Infuse 4G: This Samsung phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• Samsung Intercept: The lack of a 2.3 upgrade for the Intercept doesn't bode well for the phone's Android 4.1 upgrade chances.

• Samsung Replenish: This Samsung phone never received even a mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. With no discussion since the days of Gingerbread, a sudden jump to Jelly Bean doesn't seem likely.

• Samsung Transform: Though nothing official has been said about the lower-end Samsung Transform, the fact that it's still stuck on an older version of Android makes its Android 4.1 upgrade odds appear quite low.

• Sanyo Zio: Like many of the other phones in this section of the list, the Zio's lack of continued upgrades over the months is a fairly strong indication it doesn't have a great shot at getting Android 4.1.

Android 4.1 Upgrade List: Why Isn't My Device Listed?

Don't see your device on this page? Don't panic. Manufacturers and carriers will be releasing Android 4.1 upgrade details for months to come. If a phone or tablet isn't on this page -- like the HTC Thunderbolt or original Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, for example -- that doesn't necessarily mean it won't be upgraded. It just means there isn't much clear info available yet about its fate. Some manufacturers are being especially slow about divulging their plans this go-round, likely because of their struggles to keep up with promises in the past.
