Earlier today HTC announced their newest flagship, the One X+, which will come pre-loaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and Sense 4+. We originally thought the latest version of Sense would be version 4.5, but either way it’s an updated version. As we expected, HTC will also upgrade the One X, the One S, and the One XL to both Jelly Bean and Sense 4+. They will start with the international unlocked versions this month, followed by the carrier branded versions. How long it will take for the carriers to approve and deploy the update is anyone’s guess. Those of you in the U.S. with the AT&T One X and the T-Mobile One S will eventually receive it, but again it’s going to be up to both of those carriers. I’m hopeful that all devices will receive it by the end of the year.
If you own a One V, unfortunately it wasn’t mentioned as receiving the upgrade, which isn’t good news at all. I guess that’s going to be a trait for all economy phones moving forward. Manufacturers just aren’t going to put the time into them as they assume those customers aren’t as concerned with those that buy mid to upper tier phones.
