HTC One X, other wise a good device, had a really bad
bug feature of insane level of task killing and that was the only reason why it didn’t get the fame it deserved. However, now that rumors are surfacing that the HTC One X will get its Jelly Bean update in October along with One X+, it won’t be totally wrong to expect the multi-tasking “feature” to be fixed.
Apparently, a report on MoDaCo suggests that the blog has some sources saying that HTC will start rolling out the Jelly Bean update for HTC One X before the end of October. The update will be of OTA nature and will come on all carriers.
However, before you get your hopes up too high, it is also worth noting that when you will get the Jelly Bean update on your HTC One X also depends on when your local carrier approves it, so if you have a really lazy carrier, you can expect the update to hit your device before Christmas.
The report also goes on to say that HTC will be launching its long rumored device, the HTC One X+, in October itself. The report says that HTC One X+ would come with Jelly Bean right out of the box and hence there you should not expect a firmware update for at least a few months.
Currently, HTC hasn’t even confirmed the existence of such a device, let alone its tech specs, however, that doesn’t mean we are completely blank on what the HTC One X+ would have under its hood.
According to a tipster from XDA who goes by the name Football4PDA, the HTC One X+ will have measure about 134 x 70 x 9.3 mm, weigh around 129 grams and have the new Tegra 3+ AP37 1.6GHz quad-core / 1.7GHz single-core heart complemented with with 1GB of RAM. He goes on to say that the device would feature the same 1800mAH battery which we have already seen in the HTC One X.
Just like MoDaCo, the tipster has also mentioned that HTC One X+ would come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean right out of the box and will have HTC Sense 4.5 to complement the OS.
