Owners of the HTC One X+ and the HTC One X stand ready – the long-anticipated Android 4.2.2 update with Sense 5 has started rolling out to older models.
The news comes from HTC’s home country of Taiwan, where the company has officially made the Android 4.2.2 update available as an over the air download for HTC One X+ owners.
The update adds many of the features first experienced on the this year’s HTC One, including the homescreen news aggregation widget BlinkFeed, automatic video highlights, a new and improved lockscreen, a new music app, autofocus lock in the camera app and more.
All this is part of HTC Sense 5, the company’s relatively new and vastly improved user interface that has gained so much praise since the launch of the HTC One. In addition, users will get the performance improvements inherent in the 4.2.2 version of Android.
Whilst this update appears to be limited to a few handsets in a single far east territory, it signals that HTC has completed work on Sense 5 for older handsets. This should mean that it will trickle its way to other HTC One X+ handsets in other territories in the near future.
It also means that HTC One X owners should expect their own update soon, as the two handsets are essentially identical but for a few minor hardware tweaks.
