HTC UK has revealed that HTC One X+ will not be getting any more Android updates and will remain on Android 4.2.2. With this confirmation, the future of HTC One X, which is a slightly inferior phone to One X+ is also certain as HTC won’t be updating one phone and not the other.
To remind you, HTC One X was the company flagship smartphone for the first half of 2012, while One X+ was the flagship for second half. When Samsung has just pushed Android 4.3 for its 2012 flagship phone Galaxy S III, it is disappointing to see HTC leaving One X and X+ behind.
