HTC One X is the company’s most powerful smartphone till date. This handset originally runs on the Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Operating System. HTC has recently announced a new software update for this device. Before you get too excited, let me tell you that, it is not the much-awaited Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) update you’ve been waiting for. The latest update will upgrade the handset to the Android 4.0.4 OS and bumps the UI to Sense 4.1.
Instead of opening the multi-tasking grid in Sense, the recent apps key will now open context menu inside non ICS apps such as Facebook. You can also open the multitasking menu just by long-pressing the recent app key. This update not only brings the general stability improvements to the device, but also enhances the camera capabilities such as white balance and continuous autofocus.
Apart from the changes mentioned above, you can expect enhancements to memory, platform stability and improved overall browsing experience. The company has also added a single sign-on feature for Facebook, which will allow the users to access Facebook in multuple apps and browsers. The latest upgrade to Beats audio is touted to provide an authentic sound experience.
Earlier this week, AT&T has already rolled out this update for the HTC One X. Now, the owners of the international variant will start receiving the Android 4.0.4 update. The size of the update is 148 MB and it will be available via Over-The-Air (OTA). You will be automatically notified when the update is available for your device. If you have not received the update, then just go to Settings > About Device > System updates and check for the update.
