HTC UK and HTC Netherlands have seemingly confirmed on Twitter that the two smartphones (released in 2012) would not be updated beyond Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and Sense 5 UI. Of course, both handsets should be perfectly capable of running 4.4 KitKat (since they feature quad-core processors and 1GB of RAM), so HTC’s decision - assuming it’s final - is a bit weird. Sure enough, custom, unofficial Android 4.3 and 4.4 ROMs for the One X and One X+ will be available, but, still, nothing beats a software update that comes straight from the manufacturer.
Maybe HTC will change its plans regarding these two handsets - it wouldn’t be the first time when something said on Twitter is eventually retracted. We’ll keep an eye on this to see what happens.
