When it comes to Android firmware upgrades, it’s not uncommon for an Android manufacturer to put some of their older devices on the back burner while a newly released flagship steals their focus. Often times a new phone will launch with the latest version of Android (or at least within the general firmware version) while older devices wait for months for carriers to put the software update through the long process of testing. HTC has been notoriously victimized of this in the past with AT&T HTC One X receiving Jelly Bean several months after its international counterpart.
Well, according to HTC leakster @LlabTooFeR, it looks like HTC isn’t quite ready to quit the international One X just yet. Apparently, in addition to the confirmed Sense 5 upgrade, Android 4.2.2 could also be coming along for the ride. He believes a possible time frame for the could be around June/July and before my man, BigCiX, get’s too excited, keep in mind that this update is for the international version — not the dual-core Snapdragon S4 variant (Ville) like we have in the states. Of course, this doesn’t mean a US update is completely out of the question. Actually, it makes it a little more likely. We just know how long it takes for these updates to get the green light on AT&T. We’ll keep a look out though.
