HTC One X and One X+ won’t receive any more Android updates

If you own either the HTC One X or the HTC One X+ and were dreaming about tasting some Android 4.4 KitKat at some point in the future, here’s some bad news for you.

It turns out that neither of those handsets will receive any more Android software updates from HTC. This has been made clear by the Taiwanese company’s arm in the Netherlands (via Twitter) for the One X+, and famous HTC-related stuff leaker @LlabTooFer has also apparently confirmed the information for the One X with HTC’s UK arm.

No KitKat, no nothing, then. Not even Android 4.3. The aforementioned devices will be stuck on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean forever. Of course, you could go the custom ROM route, but we’re talking about official updates here.

None of this should be incredibly surprising to you considering HTC’s track record on issuing updates for its smartphones. Basically, if you sport anything but the company’s latest flagship device, you’re left in the cold in this regard. It’s been like this for a while.

Yet those who have a One X or One X+ have it a lot better than anyone who’s ever purchased any of the Desire-branded midrangers that the company has been churning out like crazy over the past year or so. Those handsets generally never receive software updates – not even one.
