HTC has announced in a press statement that there will be no further Android updates for the One S smartphone. This means that the One S users will only be restricted to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and will not be able to use HTC s latest Sense 5 UI on their phone.

The company has stated that, “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.”
HTC had launched the One S last year and though HTC has earlier mentioned that the company will roll out the Sense 5 update to other phone, it now seems to have taken a U-turn. HTC s Sense 5 was first seen on the HTC One and offered a new UI and features like BlinkFeed, Zoe, and more. However, the lack of support for the Sense 5 as well as the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in HTC One S will be a disappointment for its owners who were expecting the update to land on their phones soon.
