HTC One X Sense 5:
HTC fortunes fell in the past few years as Samsung overtook it as the prime Android smartphone manufacturer in the World and it saw its market share and stock prices fall. But the company started to shake all of these gloomy events off with the introduction of the One Series. Last year’s flagship phone from HTC was the HTC One X and though the phone was praised by critics for its stunning design and look, its fantastic camera and display, its smooth performance and its Sense 4 UI, the sales of the phone remained modest. Still it was a huge improvement from the company and one that got many people to stop dismissing HTC as yesteryear’s wonderchild.
This year saw the release of the HTC One which many rank as the best smartphone of the year and the sales of the phone are encouraging as well, the HTC One included Sense 5. So, one must imagine that the company has put the HTC One X in the past. But, according to latest reports that is not the case, as it seems HTC has one last update for the previous flagship before it puts it to rest.
HTC is going to update the One X to Android 4.2.2 and the latest version of its Sense UI; Sense 5. However, before our readers in America become too excited, we must let you know that the update at the time seems to be only arriving for Europe so don’t expect your AT&T One X to be receiving the same Sense 5 update to soon (we all know HTC’s track record).
The Sense 5 update has landed in the northern and eastern countries of Europe with the rest of the continent to follow in the coming days. It version number is 4.18.401.2 and clocks in at just under 380MB when it comes to size. One X users will be happy to see a host of HTC One features like the Blinkfeed home screen, Zeo HD video highlights and an updated camera app onboard.
A similar update for the HTC One X+ has been rolling out in parts of Asia since the past week or so.
