Update: HTC One X to receive Android 4.2.2 update with Sense 5.5

htc-one-x-630

The HTC One X in Europe has already been updated to Android 4.2.2, but Vodafone Australia has revealed that another update is in the works. This update would give the phone the same Sense 5.5 features that will hit the HTC One when it is updated to Android 4.3 later this month.

The information was revealed on Vodafone’s weekly software update blog post. No details regarding features or timing were revealed, just a simple statement that the Android 4.2.2 update with Sense 5.5 is currently being prepped by HTC. While we would like to see Android 4.3 or even 4.4 on the HTC One X, we knew the phone would eventually be destined to live out its remaining days on an older version of Android.

Update: we have received word from HTC that the information on Vodafone’s site is not correct. No official statement on the matter was released, but it looks like someone at Vodafone mistakenly types 5.5 instead of 5.0.

    This doesn’t make any sense to me (pun not intended). My One running 4.3 is still on Sense 5 and my One X+ running 4.2.2 was brought up to Sense 5 from 4+. Why would an older flagship be the launch for the latest version of Sense and higher than newer models?

      Sense 5.5 should be included in the Android 4.3 update of the One which should start to trickle out later this month. Since Vodafone has not even received the update from HTC yet, it’ll be at least another 2-3 months before they push it out.

    I think it’s HTC trying to help the fragmentation of the sense versions. The One will get there, don’t you worry.

    • redraider133

      yet rumors are that the 4.3 for the US HTC one will still be on sense 5 and the international will get sense 5.5. I hope this is the case with them making their versions of sense less fragmentated.

  • Techrocket9

    The primary reason I hope that it makes it to 4.3 before it peters out is to enable the Bluetooth 4.0 features we were promised when the device launched.

  • Mike C.

    If it is correct that my One X will not go to 4.3 then I will root it soon … and never look at HTC again … Samsung has a much better track record for updating their Galaxys. Too bad with all the plastic.

      Apparently you have only been paying attention for the last year or so. Before the GSIII they were among the worst of all of the manufacturers when it came to updates.

  • Mykle

    Too bad. I was going to consider the HTC One my official switch from iPhone….but I don’t think its even going to get the Android 4.4 Kit Kat update…

  • Shushant Verma

    In India we still don’t have sense 5 and 4.2. I don’t know how it will take. I mean if other countries got it then why are they not rolling the update for Indian users? :(

      If you are talking about 4.0.3 in a One X topic, you probably shouldn’t even be updating your phone. It might blow up.
