HTC To Start Rolling Out Android 4.2.2 To AT&T One X’s Tomorrow


According to a tweet published earlier today, HTC hopes to start pushing out the final update to AT&T-branded models of its former flagship smartphone, the One X, tomorrow, Wednesday, January 29. This upgrade is scheduled to 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 One X was released back in May, 2012 and packs a 4.7-inch Super LCD2 IPS capacitive touchscreen, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1,800 mAh battery.

Unfortunately, we have no official changelog for this upgrade, but we suspect 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, enhanced photo daydream, restricted profiles and additional language support — most likely for Afrikaans, Amharic, Hindi, Swahili and Zulu.

To be one of the first to download the update, head into ‘Settings’, then ‘About Device’, and tap on ‘Check for Updates’. Alternatively, you could just wait until you receive a push notification prompting you to upgrade, but this often takes significantly longer than manually scanning for the OTA.
