HTC One X in Line for Jelly Bean Upgrade

The HTC One X is reported to be in line for an upgrade to Android Jelly Bean, with the new software rumoured to begin rolling out in October.

Smartphone news site Modaco has reported that unlocked versions of the Taiwanese manufacturer’s flagship handset will be upgraded to the latest version of Google’s mobile platform first, with upgrades for network specific devices following later on.

According to the report, which didn’t cite any sources for the information, the update will be available for all One X devices by Christmas.

Having launched in May of this year running Android Ice Cream Sandwich, the One X was one of the first smartphones to feature a quad-core processor. Despite receiving excellent reviews it has failed to see the same sales figures that the similarly-specced Samsung Galaxy S III has enjoyed.

The Galaxy S III itself is also rumoured to be receiving a Jelly Bean update in October, with the new operating system having already gained a respectable foothold amongst Android’s user base. Having launched in July, the platform is already being used on around 1.2% of all Android devices.

Modaco also reported that HTC’s rumoured One X+ handset will launch with Jelly Bean, as will the manufacturer’s upcoming One XL device.
