We were promised an update earlier this week, and AT&T is delivering. While the HTC One X+ is never going to reach KitKat (or even Android 4.3), it is getting an update to Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5.0. The update has started hitting the first devices now, so you can begin obsessively checking for updates any time.

Here's the basic changelog from HTC:

  • Android Version: 4.2.2
  • HTC Sense: 5.0
  • NFC Fixes
  • AT&T Address Book Fixes

This update will bring quite a UI overhaul courtesy of Sense 5.0. You can check out which features are included on HTC's update page. You're basically getting most of the stuff from the HTC One, with the exception of the fancier camera stuff and BoomSound (the One X+ obviously lacks the hardware). When the update appears, the version number will be 2.15.502.1. You can try the manual update check, but it is likely a slow rollout. Happy hunting.
