HTC says no more Android updates for One X & One X+

 

HTC ONE X no more updates

Bad news for HTC One X and One X+ owners who thought they might get future Android updates: HTC has just said users of both phones will be stuck on Android 4.2.2 from here on out. The HTC One X was HTC’s flagship device for 2012, and promoted 720p display, polycarbonate body, and dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The follow-up, the One X+, was designed as a souped-up version, bringing with it a best 2,100mAh battery, better storage, a faster 1.7GHz Tegra 3 processor, and an updated secondary camera. The news was rooted by HTC’s UK Twitter account earlier today, and comes just fourteen months after the One X+’s release.

HTC announces the HTC One X and HTC One X+ won’t get any more Android updates.

We can confirm that the HTC One X and One X+ will not receive further Android OS updates beyond Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5. We really realize this news will be met with disappointment by some, but our users should feel confident that we have designed both devices to be optimized with our amazing camera and audio experiences.

While HTC did not go into further detail about the decision, the absence of support may center on lackluster sales and the different hardware configurations of the X and X+. HTC pulled a very much alike move with the One S last year, a device that’s on paper was still quite capable of running newer versions of Google’s Android.
