HTC Releases The Jelly Bean Updates For One X

It wasn't too long ago that HTC said it would be rolling out Android Jelly Bean to One X owners worldwide. Sadly, the update seemed to only release in Taiwan, until now. HTC, it seems, is now releasing Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean across more international markets. 

Just a few months ago, HTC announced that it would be rolling out the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean updates to the HTC One X users worldwide. Unfortunately, HTC only rolled out the updates in its Taiwanese market up until now. HTC, will be releasing the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean updates across more international markets.

According to HTCSource and XDA, HTC One X owner from Israel, India, Argentina, UK, Brazil, Russia, Peru, Dominican Republic, and Sri Lanka have claimed that they have started to receive the latest Android Operating system updates.

The Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean for the HTC One X first available in Taiwan back in October. Although the HTC taken some times to roll out this latest Android upgrades to other market. The Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean upgrade is still a nice Christmas present before the end of the year arrives.

Meanwhile, HTC One X owners that are tied to carrier like AT&T in the United States shouldn’t anticipate the latest round of updates anytime soon. As it has been the case before, U.S carriers are among the last to provide the Android updates to its loyal users and AT&T is currently in the mist of releasing the Jelly Bean for its Samsung’s flagship, Galaxy S3 users. The AT&T HTC One X does remain a popular Android smartphone and while there have some ROMS out in the wild it is highly unlikely the HTC One X users get the Jelly Bean updates before the end of year.

 Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean come with a host of new features such as Google voice assistant known as Google Now. In addition to that, Jelly Bean also improves the system performance thanks to the Project Butter.
