Android 4.2.2 update with Sense 5 heading for the HTC One X this Summer?

Android 4.2.2 update with Sense 5 heading for the HTC One X this Summer?
While not officially coming from HTC, someone who has had reliable HTC information in the past is saying that the HTC One X will be receiving another update to Android 4.2.2 this June or July. The rumor goes on to say that the update will include HTC Sense 5. While this news is not coming directly from the Taiwan based manufacturer, HTC has already said that all or part of Sense 5 will be sent out to the HTC One X, HTC One X+, HTC DROID DNA/Butterfly and the HTC One S.

While this sounds great in theory, consider that as soon as May at Google I/O, we could see the introduction of Android 5.0 also known as Key Lime Pie which would mean that Android 4.2.2 would no longer be the latest build of the Android OS. But for those HTC One X and HTC One X+ owners who are locked in with their contract and can't buy the HTC One, we're pretty sure that Sense 5 is gonna feel real good.

Exciting news for all the HTC One X owners. Seems like it's been a while since it's been updated. Is Blink Feed a part of Sense 5.0? Or is it an exclusive feature for the HTC One?

It is part of Sense 5.0, the only "One" exclusive features are the ones that are hardware related, the rest will come to the One X according to HTC.

It may be exciting, but for the people who owned an AT&T HTC One X... that's just a long disappointment news XD (I'm a former One X owner). I loved the phone but the update time frame was just too long from AT&T... From now, I'm sticking with Nexus phones or an international version

If you update the One X with 4.2.2 that would help your image.

I'm getting a HTC One S and afterward I'll get rid of my LG Optimus L9 (Cause it phucking sucks)

The One S was actually one of the best Android phones I ever owned. The build quality is excellent, the screen isn't bad, and it was fast. The little plastic covers for the antennas and SIM card on the back are fragile, but they are cheap to replace. I just wish I had owned the black version.

I'm sure I won't see this update on my AT&T One X in a looooong time......

Well Im never going to update my htc. I hate sense 5, the only reason I buy an htc is for the UI and sense 5 feels like something from 2010. 3 steps forward and 4 steps backward Im my mind...

Also could be a RAM and CPU hog? Takes up to much RAM and becomes slightly sluggish!

Im not saying that sense 5 is sluggish its quiet the opposite but sense 5 doesn't have all the cool trasitions that sense 3 - 4 had and I love the trasitions between the home screens. And your right I don't update my phones because of what you said it uses too much ram and slows the phone down.

What? So far all the updates i got on my One X didn't slow it down, in fact it "turboed" my One X.

Well then maybe I'll update it but Im not totaly ready for sense 5.

The Sense 5 update for the Droid DNA probably won't be the full package and it probably won't come out till fall at the earliest thanks to the big red. I would root it and rom it but verizon and htc locked it down tight with the ota that came out in early february.

PhoneArena that is actually the One X+ not the One X, but i guess they will get the update at almost the same time.

The phone in the picture is the One X+*

While Sense 5.0 looks flat, it is not bad and makes the battery life much longer.
