AT&T rolling out Jelly Bean to HTC One X

Ma Bell says HTC One X owners can update to Android Jelly Bean.


The upcoming HTC One may be top billing, but AT&T hasn't completely forgotten about the One X. The carrier announced today that HTC One X users on its network can now upgrade to Android Jelly Bean.

This is an update a long time coming since the HTC One X+ already runs a fresh helping of Google's mobile operating system. To be clear, the version of this software is Android 4.1 and not the most recent 4.2 Jelly Bean variant you'll find on LG's Nexus 4. Still, a new infusion of code is always a good thing.

The enhancement brings access to Google's Google Now advanced search along with snappier performance courtesy of the Butter project baked into Jelly Bean. AT&T also claims that HTC One X is also compatible with the Isis mobile payment solution, so the next time you're in Salt Lake City or Austin, Texas, perhaps you can give it a spin at participating locations.
