HTC has rolled out the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean as well as the Sense 5 UI update for the HTC One X+. This surely is a welcome move on part of HTC which had earlier stated it will only be concentrating on the latest smartphone model for eking out the latest Android and Sense UI update. As such, the company’s move to update the One X+ which has been among HTC’s front line offerings in 2012 can well be termed thoroughly sensible.
Coming to the specifics, the update right now is being made available to One X+ owners in Taiwan and surrounding areas. The company is tight lipped about when it would proliferate in other regions of the world though with the process having already started, it shouldn’t be later than a couple of weeks. Also, it is the unlocked version of the One X+ that is benefitting from the update right now, which itself is quite hefty at 484 MB.
Among the new features to be expected post the update includes Daydream as well as Blickfeed. There will also be the new lock screen widget and the Quick Settings Toggle. The update will also introduce enhancements for the camera and the music app, with the latter now benefiting from visualizations. There will also be a new battery meter which will show the exact percentage of battery power left in the device. This apart, the update is also expected to improve the overall battery consumption of the device as well. Users will also get to have automatic video highlights post the update.
