It looks as though the HTC One X is on the up – where the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer did mention that they will be introducing a minor update to the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system which will deliver a modified version of its Sense UI. Not only that, even better news is HTC’s commitment to bring Android 4.1 Jelly Bean over to the HTC One X. According to a HTC spokesperson, the Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich rollout will begin from today onwards in the UK, although timings for the other regions will vary.
HTC’s statement mentioned, “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 functions to the ‘recent app’ key — improving visual presentation in non-ICS apps like Facebook — and improve tab management in the browser with a dedicated tab-switching button.”
Do expect additional improvements such as a refined white balance and a continuous auto-focus mode for the camera, not to mention a single sign-on for Facebook across websites and apps. No idea on when Android. 4.1 Jelly Bean update will arrive though, but patience is the best policy.
