HTC One X receives first OTA update with battery life and performance enhancements


If you own the European HTC One X, you might want to go check for software updates. HTC just pushed out a new update over the air (OTA) that upgrades the firmware to version 1.28.401.9. We don’t have a full changelog yet, but we think this is the update that includes the fix that increases battery life by up to 20%.

Some press units of the HTC One X shipped with firmware 1.26, that had some issues with battery life and this was reflected poorly in some early reviews. HTC updated some devices to 1.27, which improved the battery life and fixed some bugs, and it’s nice to see an official OTA hit the European units now.

A quick check of the software settings shows this latest 1.28 update includes a new baseband version (1.1204.103.14) and new kernel ( The build date of the release is April 14th, so this is hot off the presses.

We hear that performance scores have also gone up in the latest software release, but we have yet to run it through all the benchmarks.

If you have the One X, let us know if you grab the latest update.
