Multiple reports have confirmed that the Android 4.1 update for the Tegra 3 powered HTC One X has started rolling out to handsets across the globe. The update initially hit handsets in Taiwan and a few other Asian countries, but we have also heard reports that the update is now hitting phones in Europe.
Users have confirmed that the Jelly Bean update for the HTC One X is labeled as Android 4.1.2 and weighs in at 352.87MB. The software update also includes HTC Sense 4+ which sports new skins for the UI, infinitely looping home screens, theming/tweaking options for the SMS app, automatic SMS forwarding to email options, password protected SMS inbox, updated gallery app with social services integration, keyboard improvements, system tweaks for better battery life and roughly a 10% performance boost across the board. Other Android 4.1 features include Project Butter which delivers a much smoother UI and Google Now.
If your Tegra 3 powered HTC One X has not yet received its Android 4.1.2 update, we suggest pining HTC’s update servers by going to Settings > About > Software Updates > Check Now. The next HTC device on the list to receive Jelly Bean is the international HTC One S. Those of us in the United State will probably be waiting a little longer as U.S. carrier testing typically adds an extra 3-5 weeks to HTC’s software update schedule.
What new Android 4.1.2 or Sense 4+ feature are you looking forward to the most?
