HTC One X Jelly Bean update arrives in Europe, reports say

The cutting-edge software is reportedly rolling out now in Europe and Asia, bringing Sense 4+ along for the ride.

HTC One X owners, stand by your smart phones -- reports suggest the much-anticipated Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is now arriving on devices in Europe.

Android Central quotes HTC saying the update is "rolling out now" to Asia and Europe. I've contacted HTC for confirmation of this and I'll update the story when I hear back, but for now the timing makes sense, as HTC already vowed to squeeze out the update for the One X and One S in October.

HTC is reportedly pushing out the update to different batches of One X devices at different times, so don't be alarmed if you haven't spied the update on your smart phone yet. I've asked HTC UK for comment, but there's no news just yet.

If you have spotted Jelly Bean popping up on your One X however, let us know in the comments, and don't forget to mention which country you live in too -- it might help fellow One X owners track the mysterious software's release. Bear in mind this update is probably only for unlocked models, so if you bought your One X from a network you'll have to wait for it to send its own version of the new software.

As well as delivering the latest version of Android, the update will come packaged with Sense 4+, a new edition of HTC's custom 'droid skin. Despite the popularity of raw-Android Nexus devices, Sense is still one of our favourite manufacturer-meddled interfaces, so I'll be interested to hear thoughts from owners on the new version. 

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is unlikely to be cutting-edge for long. Google was expected to reveal details regarding Android 4.2 at an event today -- along with a first official glimpse at the LG Nexus 4 and Samsung Nexus 10 -- but unfortunately the New York-based event has been cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy .
