The HTC One X might only get one more update, Android 4.2.2

by: Brad WardApril 23, 2013


Earlier this month, it was revealed that the HTC One X might be getting the update to Android 4.2.2 in June or July, but now an unconfirmed report says that the update to the latest version of Jelly Bean will be the last operating system upgrade the HTC One X gets.

According to HTC leakster @LLabTooFeR, Android 4.2.2 will be the last update the HTC One X receives, meaning that it won’t be getting Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, which Google should announce in May during the search giant’s I/O event.

Considering that the Android 5.0 hasn’t been announced yet, there’s still a spark of hope that the One X could get it, as this is an unconfirmed report and isn’t anything official from HTC. On the other hand, @LLabTooFeR has been a reliable source in the past, so it is possible that this is legit information.

Regardless, being an unconfirmed report, we’re going to have to take this with a grain of salt for now, as HTC hasn’t announced anything and Google hasn’t even revealed Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie just yet. Keep that Android 4.2.2 is supposed to land on the HTC One X in June, so it’ll probably be a while after that before we hear official confirmation from HTC.

  • Is the S4 gonna run Key Lime Pie

    • If the S3 is getting it, then obviously the S4 will get it. But if you mean shipping with KLP, no, It’s shipping with (what is as of now) the latest version of Android, 4.2.2.

    So much for a flagship phone, what a joke. The GS3 came with ICS 4.0, updated to JB 4.1.2 and Samsung has already publicly stated it WILL get KLP 5.0. Suckers buy HTC.

      The Galaxy Note came with android 2.3, was updated to android 4.0, then 4.1, and probably will be updated to 4.2 :D

      lol! they are talking about the One X, not the One, the One X came out before the GS3 got updated to android 4.1 before the GS3 in many major markets and it’s getting 4.2 most likely before the GS3, not to mention that the said report is not just some random rumors, (posted by those samsung blogers ?) anyways you need to check your facts before posting something stupid.

      • Even the S2 has 4.2 Jellybean already, pretty sad to say that a phone 3 years old has 4.2 and a 1 year old phone doesn’t even have it yet.

  • This is why I will never buy an HTC phone. They have terrible support for all of their devices.

    • I’m with you on this.

      Bad luck for you because I picked up my new HTC one and it’s unbelievably good.

    That’s a photo of a One S. I have one of those, on T-Mobile, and I’m not convinced it’s even going to get 4.1. (The One S everywhere else in the world has, but it’ll probably end there.)

    I didn’t expect any updates so I’m not bitter about it… but it’s impossible not to notice that Samsung and (unsurprisingly) Motorola have gotten much better about providing them.

  • Data1001

    Does this apply to the HTC One X+, as well?

    This is timely news. I was going to buy the HTC One. Now that I know how HTC treats its customers, I’m now set on getting the Motorola-X instead.

    But my wife and daughter have the HTC One X. They’re really disappointed about this.

    Thanks for this news reminder on how HTC sucks!

  • Experience tells me that 4.2.2 is the last update for the One X and One S. Updating these phones to KLP would signal a very positive change at HTC. The forums are full of HTC users complaining about late or even missing updates (and lack of removable battery/memory expansion).
