HTC One XL in East Asia gets Jelly Bean, AT&T might follow soon
Unlike its international counterpart that’s powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 chip, the HTC One X that’s released in the U.S. (via AT&T) and select markets uses a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, which integrates LTE into the SoC.
Also known as the One XL, we’ve seen HTC confirming back in July that it will be upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Fast forward to December, it seems the update has now hit the phone in Singapore and Taiwan.
As reported by The Android Soul, HTC is now rolling out the software update version 3.17.707.1 to the One XL. It’s a pretty huge update, both size-wise (657.98 MB) and what it packs inside. Android 4.1 and all its buttery features are a given, but it will also bring HTC Sense 4+, better camera performance, new landing page and gallery, and power management improvement.
If you’ve been waiting for the day for Jelly Bean to come, now it’s a good time to check for the update on the Software Updates menu on your phone.
As for AT&T’s HTC One XL, we heard that the carrier is now still in the early phase of testing the new firmware. It might be released in the coming days or weeks. We’ll keep you posted.
