HTC One X to get Jelly Bean update in October
If you have a non-branded HTC One X, expect an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to be available in October. MoDaCo.com got word that generic One X units will get the update first.

For those with a carrier branded unit, like AT&T, the Jelly Bean update for your HTC One X should be available before Christmas. Given how quickly Android 4.1 is being adopted, relative to previous releases, you would probably be okay to hope for a time sooner than that.

Like with so many OS updates, it has been a waiting game since HTC announced that their One X, One S and One XL devices would be updated to Jelly Bean because, like with so many announcements, no date for the updates was provided.  This news is welcome since some in the rumor mill were projecting updates closer to the end of December at the earliest. So far, only news of an update for the One X has been reported.  We have not seen word of Jelly Bean updates for the One S or One XL, but when we do, we will be sure to pass it on to you!

Wendy oh Wendy . I don't know what's wrong with you .
Few months ago you are replying iPhone 4S to people asking galaxy vs Xperia /razr/HTC (i forgotten ) which is better .
Sometimes I see you flip flopping over articles , you act like a iFan sometime yet you act like a Fandroid sometime
What's you agenda ? Neutral ? You don't really act neutral instead you act like there is 2 person a Fandroid and a iFan behind your account

I have that same background on my Galaxy Nexus. If you are looking for the clock widget, Fancy Widgets will get you close.

If you are looking at the EVO 4G LTE, get it, its a great phone. I have an EVO and the recent update (still ICS) fixed the multitasking issues and sped the phone up quite a bit. It is faster than my GS3 now and I am consistently getting Quadrant's of 5400-5700, at the top of the Quadrant list beating out the One X, this phone is a BEAST.

That being said, Jelly Bean will speed things up even more and make the OS even smoother, I cant wait. BTW, I'm sure HTC will update the EVO at the same time as the AT&T One X or before, the EVO is a huge flagship franchise for Sprint and they will make sure those customers are happy.

You didn't lose anything with the 4.0.4 update, right? You won't lose it with the Jelly Bean update so don't worry, just be happy (and grateful to HTC)! :)

I think it won't make any major difference. 200 MHz aren't much more than the clockspeed of 1500 MHz of the One X. Right, guys?
