Right now the HTC One is where it is at, but if you happen to still be packing an HTC One X+, you’ll be happy to know that HTC has finally started rolling out Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Sense 5. At the moment, the update is only live for folks in Taiwan and the surrounding region, but it’s a start at least.

Outside of 4.2.2 goodies like Daydream and new lock screen widgets, the new update also includes BlinkFeed, an updated music app, an enhanced camera app, and Quick Settings Toggle.

Another important change has to do with battery life. Not only is the upgrade supposed to improve overall battery life, but the One X+ will also now show the exact battery percentage left in the status bar.

While many of us are still a bit peeved at HTC for cutting the One S out of newer updates, at least it’s good to see that the HTC One X+ is still getting some 4.2.2 Jelly Bean lovin’, alongside some much welcomed features that we’ve already seen with the HTC One.

So when will the sizable 484MB update reach folks outside of Taiwan? Apparently a wider rollout of the OTA is expected to occur within the next 30 days. We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we hear more.

    Hopefully the battery percentage will be INSTEAD OF the icon, not AS WELL AS, like on the One.
