Hey, HTC One X, no Key Lime Pie for you?
At the end of last month, we passed along to you some speculation from someone characterized as an HTC insider who previously passed along accurate information from the Taiwan based company. The rumor was that this Summer, you can expect the HTC One X to receive an update to Android 4.2.2 accompanied by Sense 5. That, of course, is the good news.

Unfortunately, the same source has a bit of bad news for owners of the handset. A tweet was sent out from this tipster proclaiming that the Android 4.2.2 update will be the last one for the handset. That means that the phone will not receive an update to Android 5.0, Key Lime Pie. Expected to be unveiled at Google I/O next month, Android 5.0 is now delayed.

Currently, the HTC One X is running Android 4.1 after coming to market last year with Android 4.0.3 installed. The manufacturer's new flagship model, the HTC One, recently launched with Android 4.1.2 under the hood, but will be receiving an update to Android 4.2. The HTC One should be capable of getting updated to Android 5.0.

latest Software updates are now becoming a Achilles heel for HTC.... Too bad They bullsh!tted the sexiest phone (One) in the universe with a year old molested android version(4.1)...

Most phones are rocking 4.1 out of the box and/or being updated to 4.1 now. The SGS4 coming out of the box with 4.2 will be the first phone I've seen in my store launched with 4.2. A year ago only the Nexus devices were rocking 4.1 if that so calling it a year old is a reach at best.

Galaxy S3 won't get KLP either because KLP requires 2GB of RAM to operate normally. I don't know what's the big deal. You can root your phone and probably put a custom KLP ROM on it if you feel to experiment and what not.... Anyways KLP won't be out for some time...

I read somewhere that the U.S. gs3 would also not receive the KLP update. If this is true, the one x not receiving KLP is not surprising to me at all.

that was based on the grounds that US gs3 variants sports a dual core processors.. But HOX is a quad core monster which is more than capable of handling KLP!!!

Ah I see...it would seem that HTC is just lazy then. They probably decided not to bother since some variants wouldn't get it anyway. There isn't any excuse for pure laziness...I'd like to see what they'll do about the one x+

the number of cores has very little to do with whether or not the hardware will be able to support KLP and besides you have NO idea what kind of upgrade it will be...

SamMobile's speculation is as far fetched and as ridiculous as this report about the One X. there's absolutely zero evidence to support their claims whatsoever. zero. it doesn't even make sense for that matter.

last time I checked HOX was a dual core while the HOX+ was quad core....

misinformation is the main reason for rumors being spread that are just plain bs.

did he have to? if you knew your facts you would've known which one he was talking about...and although international models don't "apply" to you they still count.

Hm... I'm in the US too... I have the quad core One X. Just research a little more next time before you comment.

No excuses, especially if the Galaxy Nexus gets KLP as it last update.

But wait the U.S version might not get klp probably because its dual core, on the other hand the international version is most likely getting the klp because I met a couple of HTC workers in Australia when they were doing a campaign for the HTC one in vodafone. They told me its most likely going to get. Fingers crossed cause my mate who has the gs3 might have a little laugh at me if I don't get and he does :-)

Eh unless there is something earth shattering Android 4.1 and above should be fine for most people. I have the Note 2 and it does everything I need. The biggy was project butter. Now if KLP releases with the equivalent dealing with the battery then I will totally agree with you.

From what i heard from Samsung Reps in the know the next generation of Android will be a little bit of a challenge for all their handsets also as it offers significant improvements and will require realively high specs. The htc one x should realistically get it though.

I've also been told by those in the know that the next android os update will not be called key lime pie but instead will be called "Kettle-corn"

I hope HTC One owners realize they will be extremely lucky if they get any updates past Jellybean.

Seriously doubt that. At least HTC put their debut LTE phone to 4.0. Samsung can't say that, can they? The Samsung Charge is and will always be on 2.3.

That was back when HTC was good, they have changed a lot since then.

The update for the Thunderbolt to 4.0 wasn't that long ago man. Now you just look like you are hating on HTC dude.
