HTC 8S will not update to latest version Windows Phone





The HTC Windows Phone 8S in 2012 will not get updated to the latest version of Windows Phone, says the manufacturer to a Chinese-language support site. The update would not be possible because the device “does not meet the criteria ‘.

HTC specifies not meet the criteria the 8S would not meet that prevent the update. The claim does not seem to be obvious: many of Nokia Lumia have the same or very similar hardware and get the update does. Also, HTC’s own Windows Phone 8X gets the update; that extension came at the same time, but has a larger screen and more powerful hardware.

It is unknown whether the update just will not come or whether it also applies to users in the Netherlands. For Chinese users HTC Tweakers there could not answer in the short term, but there promises to come back. It is obvious that the 8S global update will not get.

It comes to Windows Phone 8.1 Update, on Monday came out for developers. The update will include folders on the home screen, improved display of some sites in Internet Explorer and possible support for advanced flip covers, bracelets fitness and smart watches. It would be the first time that a manufacturer of a Windows Phone 8 device confirms that no update will come. For Android devices, it is much more common that manufacturers do not put updates on cheaper models.
