HTC One X and One X+ will not get any further Android OS updates


HTC confirms that it will no longer update HTC One X and One X+. Both of these devices are currently running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, with Sense 5 UI, and HTC says they will not receive any further Android OS updates.

HTC One X, released in April 2012 was HTC’s Android flagship device for 2012. It came in two variants,  One featuring Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core processor and other with NVIDA Tegra 3 processor. HTC One X+ was later released in October 2012 featuring faster Tegra 3 processor, increased battery and storage capacities.

@HTC UK has responded to an user who inquired on rumors on HTC One X + not getting Android 4.4 KitKat update, despite being just 14 months old.

Later, in a statement to The Verge, HTC confirmed that both One X and One X + will not receive any further updates.

We can confirm that the HTC One X and One X+ will not receive further Android OS updates beyond Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5. We realize this news will be met with disappointment by some, but our customers should feel confident that we have designed both devices to be optimized with our amazing camera and audio experiences.

Though no specific reason was detailed by HTC, I believe it is a bad decision considering One X + is just 14 months old and these devices are capable of running latest Android Software.
