While our US HTC Ones are on 4.1.2, their foreign counterparts are receiving updates to 4.2.2 and silently gloating. With improvements throughout the software, it’s a much desired update. But this makes the wait even sadder: back in Taiwan, last year’s HTC One X+ is getting the update to 4.2.2 right now, with Sense 5 along for the ride.
This new update turns the aging device into a lower end HTC One, complete with BlinkFeed and our favorite feature – video highlights. You’ll also get notification toggles, a new camera lock screen widgets and more.

Seeing as the update is ready to go for the device, it should start spreading to other countries fast. It’ll probably start with a rollout in Europe and move to the US once AT&T gives it its stamp of approval. We’ll keep you up to date on where it goes next.
