HTC had previously promised that its One X smartphone would receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. Singapore and Taiwan users were the first to be offered the updated version of the mobile operating system, and now it's rolling out globally.
HTC One X owners situated in the United Kingdom, Russia, India, Argentina, Brazil, Peru and other regions are now able to download the update over-the-air. Other countries should receive 4.1 Jelly Bean imminently, a HTC source said.
Those who have yet to see an alert pertaining to the update can navigate towards Settings > Software Updates > Check Now. An initial 1.6MB file will be delivered, followed by a 364.54MB Android update.
The update itself sees the user interface becoming faster, which particularly applies to the switches of orientation from portrait to landscape. In addition to Face Unlock being more accurate than previous versions, users can also switch between apps faster.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean also delivers Google's improved voice search, as well as Google Now, a service that provides information based on your location, appointments and schedules.
The aforementioned version of the operating system isn't, unfortunately for HTC users, the latest iteration of Android. 4.2 Jelly Bean is now available on the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10.
During the last two weeks of October, Android 4.1 accounted for a 2.7 percent of the market share.
