HTC One X & One X+ Will Not Receive The Android 4.3 Update
Yesterday, HTC officially announced on Twitter that its former flagship smartphone of 2012, the One X+, and its slightly less impressive brethren, the One X, will not be receiving the much-anticipated Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update. That’s right, folks. The handsets will remain on Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5 for the rest of their days. This doesn’t come as a huge surprise, when you consider that these devices only received the 4.2 upgrade in late 2013, around the same time that 4.3 was being pushed out.
@davidjorourke Hi. We can confirm that the One X+ will not receive further Android updates & will remain on the current version of Android.

The HTC One X was first announced back in February, 2012, featuring a 4.7-inch Super IPS LCD2 capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, a Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset powered by four 1.5GHz CPU’s, 1GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB of internal storage (not user expandable), an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a ULP GeForce GPU and a 1,800 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery.
Whereas, the One X+ was released as the successor to the One X back in November, 2012, and packed a 4.7-inch Super LCD2 multitouch touchscreen with a pixel density of 312 PPI, a 1.7GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 AP37 processor, 1GB of RAM, a ULP GeForce 2 GPU, 32GB/64GB of internal storage (not expandable), an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2,100 mAh non-removable Li-Ion cell.
If you own a One X or X+ and you’re thinking of picking up a new smartphone that can run the latest version of Android, why not check out the Nexus 5 — it’s a high-spec, up-to-date, affordable handset that provides you with a ton of bang for your buck.
