HTC One X and One X + won’t get anything than Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean


Certainly, it’s a bad news for those who own either HTC’s One X or One X +. The Taiwanese manufacturer confirmed on Twitter (Dutch) that the two smartphones won’t receive further updates, and being effectively blocked after the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean release with a custom interface HTC Sense 5.

So there’re no chance to receive the update to KitKat, which can still be installed by relying on the many custom ROMs issued by independent developers. It also excludes the possibility of a passage to the official Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

The decision certainly won’t please users who have purchased one of the two models. Although, HTC may still choose to release minor updates, or those usually dedicated to the bug fixes, or to improve performance, but without making the transition to later versions of the platform.

Here’s a brief summary of the technical specifications of the phones, it may useful to understand how the device hardware sector anything but dated.
