Incremental Android Update Rolling Out to HTC One X Owners Today

Paul Lilly

We have both good news and bad news to share with HTC One X owners today. Starting with the former, HTC said it's issuing an over-the-air (OTA) update that will include an upgraded version of Android and an improved Sense experience. So what's the bad news? It's not a Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) update, just an improved version of Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0.4), albeit one that brings with it some neat improvements.

In lieu of all the benefits Jelly Bean could have offered HTC One X owners, for starters the Android 4.0.4 upgrade is supposed to "enhance camera capabilities such as white balance and continuous autofocus." It will also enable the ability to map menu functionality to the 'recent app' key, offer improved tab management with a dedicated tab switching button, increase platform stability, and usher in a handful of tweaks to memory.

Also incoming with the OTA update is a single sign-on feature for Facebook that works across browsers and apps, and unspecified upgrades to Beats audio.
