HTC One X Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5 coming in June/July, new report claims

by: Chris SmithMarch 30, 2013


The HTC One X has been just updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, but according to a new report, HTC won’t stop there with the upgrades. The Android 4.2.2 update for the One X is rumored to arrive in June/July, complete with the new HTC Sense 5 UI on top.

The news doesn’t come from HTC though, as Gotta Be Mobile points us to a series of tweets by “noted HTC leakster @LlabTooFer” who shared a few days ago on Twitter details on HTC’s One X software upgrade plans.

Needless to say, nothing is official until HTC makes the proper announcements, but we definitely expect the handset to get Android 4.2.2 at some point in the future. As for the new Sense 5, HTC did say earlier that a variety of smartphones, including the HTC One X, HTC One X+, HTC Butterfly / Droid DNA and HTC One S would receive it, or parts of it.

The bad news for HTC One X owners is that by June/July we could have a brand new Android version in the wild, meaning that the device won’t really run the latest mobile operating system in town once its Android 4.2.2 update is out. Obviously, we’re talking about Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, which Google is rumored to unveil at Google I/O in mid-May.
