The HTC One X has been just updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, but according to a new report, HTCwon’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 HTCSense 5 UI on top.

The news doesn’t come from HTCthough, as Gotta Be Mobile points us to a series of tweets by “noted HTCleakster @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 HTCmakes 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, HTCdid say earlier that a variety of smartphones, including the HTCOne X, HTCOne X+, HTCButterfly / Droid DNA and HTCOne S would receive it, or parts of it.

The bad news for HTCOne 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.
