HTC has said that they plan to update their older devices to the new Sense 5.0 that debuted on the HTC One. This included the HTC One X, which should be getting both Sense 5.0 and Android 4.2.2 eventually. We don’t know when, but eventually. However, Android 4.2.2 is where it may stay. LlabTooFeR, a famous HTC leakster, has stated quite assuredly that this is true.
@jaimemartinez_ No ETAs at the moment…4.2.2 will be last update for One X

For a device that’s a year old, that’s not a bad run. Sure, we wish they could keep it updated for two years, so early adopters will have an updated device for the length of their contracts, but that’s a lot to ask for apparently. But another update to 4.2.2 and an entirely new version of Sense is definitely something to look forward to! It should be a pretty good update for those who own this device, and it should keep it fresh for another good while. Hopefully the One X+ will outlive it by another Android version though!
