Tegra 3 powered HTC One X Android 4.0.4 update now available
Starting today, HTC will start pushing out the Android 4.0.4 update for the Tegra 3 powered HTC one X. Those who own the AT&T branded HTC One X did receive and Android 4.0.4 update last week, but it looks like the feature and improvements for the two devices are slightly different.
This new update features improvements to HTC Sense, memory management, a new dedicated tab switching button in the web browser, menu button remapping to the recent apps button, improved system stability and tweak to Beats Audio. The new update also includes SDK enhancements for developers which will allow for better Media Link integration and improved video calling capabilities for third-part applications.
We’re expecting HTC to roll out the update over the next week or two, but you can always try to manually trigger the update by going to Settings > About Phone > HTC Software Updates > Check. Let us know how the update goes and how you like all the new features and improvements.[quote]As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure customers are receiving software updates that improve their user experience, we are pleased to announce our next upgrade for the HTC One X will be released on August 10th.
The primary update will include an upgrade to Android version 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), in addition to an improved Sense experience which will: enable the ability to map menu function to the ‘recent app’ key (improving visual presentation in non ICS apps like Facebook); improve tab management in the browser with a dedicated tab switching button and enhance camera capabilities such as white balance and continuous autofocus. Furthermore, customers can expect enhancements to memory, platform stability and the overall browsing experience. Other improvements include a Single Sign-On for Facebook allowing user access across applications and browsers and upgrades to Beats audio, which reflect our dedication to providing an authentic sound experience.
From a developer perspective, we are expanding SDK support for Media Link and providing a framework for video call applications to achieve improved performance and quality.[/quote]
