HTC One X+ and One X might not be updated to Android 4.4 KitKat, and neither to 4.3 Jelly Bean50
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.
