HTC is abandoning support for both the HTC One X and One X+. Existing users are stuck to what they got, meaning Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5 singing on top.
Here’s what the Taiwanese company said in a statement to The Verge:
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.
Yeah it sounds lame, especially when we know that Android 4.4 KitKat is designed to work better with lower-end devices.
As a reminder, the original HTC One X rocks Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 dual-core chip, whereas the One X+ relies on NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor. So if you own any of these two and want to give it a new dose of life, you’re best off looking for unofficial ways to cram some newer Android version on your device…
