HTC One X Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade arrives on O2

HTC has formally begun the process of updating its last-generation HTC One X smartphone, recently surpassed by the more powerful HTC One X+, to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for customers without SIM-free and unlocked handsets.

Making the update available to O2 customers with contract or pay-as-you-go phones for the first time this week, the software update brings all the features of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to the HTC One X. As a result, owners can expect to see improved performance, the new Jelly Bean notification system with direct one-tap email, text or call response, and a vastly improved predictive text engine that reduces the embarrassment of inappropriate autocorrect entries.

The update will also bring Google Now, Google's answer to Apple's iOS 6-integrated Siri personal assistant, to the handsets. Available exclusively on Android 4.1 and Android 4.2 handsets, Google Now is designed to provide location-sensitive search results - including sports scores, weather information and traffic information - even before the user asks, and to answer natural-language questions through the speech recognition interface and typed requests from the onscreen keyboard.

What will be missing from the update, sadly, are the features of the recently-launched Android 4.2 update. While also codenamed Jelly Bean, the Android 4.2 platform brings even more improvements including a new camera app with support for capturing 360-degree panoramic images. Thus far, HTC has not provided a timescale for updating its devices to this latest version.

For HTC One X customers on the O2 network, the Android 4.1 update is available now as an over-the-air install. Users can either wait to be prompted to upgrade, or force a check by going into the Android Settings menu, choosing About, Software Updates and pressing the Check Now button.
