Now receiving the update to Android 4.0.4, the international HTC One X
Days after the AT&T version of the HTC One X was updated to Android 4.0.4 from 4.0.3, the international version of the phone has received the same update. To refresh your memory, the changelist included the remapping of the 'recent apps' key which will improve the looks of apps that have not yet made the jump to Ice Cream Sandwich. It also adds a dedicated button in the browser to switch tabs, continuous autofocus for the camera and some white balance adjustments. Additionally, the update brings enhanced memory, platform stability and users should notice an improvement to the overall browsing experience on the phone.
Other changes of note include a new Single Sign-on for Facebook and upgrades to Beats Audio. Developers should find expanded support for HTC MediaLink in the OpenSense SDK. The update has started to rollout overseas and if you want to check to see if the OTA update has hit your phone, go to Settings > About phone > Software update to see if it has arrived.
As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure customers are receiving software updates that improve their user experience, we are pleased to announce our next upgrade for the HTC One X will be released on August 10th.
The primary update will include an upgrade to Android version 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), in addition to an improved Sense experience which will: enable the ability to map menu function to the 'recent app' key (improving visual presentation in non ICS apps like Facebook); improve tab management in the browser with a dedicated tab switching button and enhance camera capabilities such as white balance and continuous autofocus. Furthermore, customers can expect enhancements to memory, platform stability and the overall browsing experience. Other improvements include a Single Sign-On for Facebook allowing user access across applications and browsers and upgrades to Beats audio, which reflect our dedication to providing an authentic sound experience.
From a developer perspective, we are expanding SDK support for Media Link and providing a framework for video call applications to achieve improved performance and quality.
