Just days after the AT&T version of the HTC One X got updated to Android 4.0.4, and after an RUU was leaked that contained Sense 4.1, owners of the international One X have now started getting an OTA update that includes both Android 4.0.4 and Sense 4.1. The update bumps the phone’s software version to 2.17.401.2 and comes in 148.13MB. It also includes more browser optimizations, camera quality improvements, and even some EA games.
Indeed, this is a much-needed update that also brings with it a better overall user experience, less lag, and the ability to remap the multitasking button.
Here is HTC’s official statement concerning the release:
As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure customers are receiving software updates that improve their user experience, we are pleased to announce our next upgrade for the HTC One X will be released on August 10th.
The primary update will include an upgrade to Android version 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), in addition to an improved Sense experience which will: enable the ability to map menu function to the ‘recent app’ key (improving visual presentation in non ICS apps like Facebook); improve tab management in the browser with a dedicated tab switching button and enhance camera capabilities such as white balance and continuous autofocus. Furthermore, customers can expect enhancements to memory, platform stability and the overall browsing experience. Other improvements include a Single Sign-On for Facebook allowing user access across applications and browsers and upgrades to Beats audio, which reflect our dedication to providing an authentic sound experience.
From a developer perspective, we are expanding SDK support for Media Link and providing a framework for video call applications to achieve improved performance and quality.
These are all welcome changes and improvements, so be sure to hit that update button if you’re got an international version of this device – and then come back to tell us if you notice any other changes or any new bugs.
