HTC To Roll Out Android 4.2.2 To The One X


HTC’s Executive Director of Product Management took to Twitter earlier today to announce that the Taiwanese company’s former flagship smartphone of 2012, the One X, is expected to receive its last ever update next week. The upgrade will bring the latest build of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and Sense 5.0 to the handset, in addition to the usual multitude of bug fixes and stability improvements.

The HTC One X was first announced back in February, 2012, packing 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.

Unfortunately, we have no official changelog for this upgrade, but we assume it will include Autocomplete for the number pad, virtual surround sound, OpenGL ES 3.0 graphics, location detection through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Smart support, Bluetooth AVRCP 1.3 compatibility, and restricted profiles.

Be sure to check back as we’ll let you know as soon as the update starts rolling out.
