Do you own an HTC One X? Have you been waiting for Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) to roll out to your smartphone? If this is the case, we have good news for you. The update is now rolling out to the phone in the UK and various areas across Europe.
The news comes to us courtesy of Android and Me. The site says that unlocked One X owners across South America, Asia, and Europe are beginning to receive the update.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean brings the latest features Android has to offer. This includes Google Now, a feature that brings you information even before you think it. However, version 4.1 is not the latest version. The latest version is version 4.2, which can be found running on Nexus devices such as the Nexus 4 (a new 4.7-inch Nexus smartphone made by LG), the Nexus 10 (a new 10-inch Nexus tablet made by Samsung), and the Nexus 7 (a 7-inch tablet made by ASUS).
The update reportedly has rolled out in two parts. The first part is a small update (1.25 to 1.6MB). The second update is the main update that is somewhere between 357 to 364MB. The update also brings support for Sense 4+ (the latest version of HTC’s UI).
If you’ve signed up for a contract to get your hands on the One X, be prepared to wait longer for the update to reach your phone. Network operators are known to test their bloatware on updates before pushing them out to their customers. So expect to get the Jelly Bean update weeks after its actual rollout.
If you want to know if the update is available for your smartphone, go to ‘Settings’, then hit ‘About’, then go to ‘Software Updates’, then finally hit ‘Check Now’.
