Android 4.1.1, JellyBean Update Rolls Out for HTC One X

The Android 4.1.1, JellyBean update rolled out for the HTC One X in Asia this week.

The software upgrade is now available for the CID_038 and CID_044 versions of the handset around the world.

The update is 364MB and requires users to download a precursory 1.6MB file which brings the software version to 3.14.707.24. After this is updated, the new version of Android will begin to install on the One X.

The software also brings the One X up to HTC Sense 4+ and the new landing page in the gallery will be improved, along with increased battery management.

HTC One X users on carrier contracts will probably have to wait until the beginning of next year to receive the Android update. The HTC One S is expected to receive it before the end of this year.

HTC recently confirmed that its devices with less than 512MB RAM will be incompatible with Android 4.1, JellyBean.

This means that the HTC One V and Desire C will not be able to upgrade.

The HTC One X is still just receiving the Android 4.1, JellyBean update in certain parts of the globe.

The device's web browser is now a lot faster than it was, as the new software allows it to fully utilize its quad-core processor.

Various Benchmark results have been posted on to the internet showing the HTC One X ranking higher than it previously did thanks to the update.

The Droid DNA by HTC hit Verizon stores last week retailing for $199 with a new 2-year agreement.

The handset features the first of its kind 5-inch 1080p SuperLCD3 display and is powered by the Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with a 1.5GHz quad-core Krait processor. It also features Adreno 320 graphics and 2GB RAM.

That device runs on Android 4.1, JellyBean and is accompanied by the HTC Sense 4+ UI.
