HTC One X Receives Android 4.0.4, Ice Cream Sandwich on AT&T

The HTC One X Ice Cream Sandwich build has been bumped up to Android 4.0.4 as AT&T began rolling out an update for it this week.

This update also brings the device's firmware up to version 2.20.502.7, which will fix the menu bug on it and remove the black menu buttons on the non-ICS apps. It will also correct the behavior of the recent apps key on the phone.

One of the main issues with both the HTC One X and One S is that they do not feature a hardware menu button. The OS would display a soft menu key at the bottom of the screen in apps that have not been optimized for the Holo theme.

The Galaxy Nexus has a similar display issue, however, it was not as irritating since there were already three keys down at the bottom of its screen.

T-Mobile is expected to release the HTC One X+ that features a Tegra 3 1.7GHz processor sometime in the near future, according to a report from TmoNews.

A smartphone named the HTC Era 42 recently appeared in T-Mobile's inventory system and the site had previously thought that this device would turn out to be the G3. Now it is claiming that it now can confirm that this HTC Era 42 will be the HTC One X+ for T-Mobile.

The original HTC One X launched earlier this year as an exclusive AT&T device and is probably the best Android handset that the Taiwanese company has ever created.

Other specifications on the One X include a 4.7-inch Super LCD display with 1280 x 720 pixels, an 8-megapixel camera that includes an ImageChip that kicks up picture processing. It is also a 4G LTE device and features Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.
