No, the global One X+ isn't getting an update to Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5 -- not yet, anyway. A round of recent reports have incorrectly stated that an OTA update for the global One X+ has begun rolling out to users' handsets. The purported update, which brings with it a host of HTC's newest features like Zoe Share and BlinkFeed, is in fact a leaked RUU and not an official software release, as HTC confirmed to us. That's not to say a true update isn't on the way -- it is -- but the company's not committing to a specific timeframe for that just yet. One X+ owners, you'll have to hold onto hope just a little bit longer.

Update: It appears HTC's Taiwanese site may have posted that update for users after all. A link on the company's site clearly outlines the Android 4.2.2 / Sense 5 update as available for users. We've reached out to HTC once again for clarification and will update this post accordingly.

Update 2: HTC has confirmed that only the Taiwanese version of the One X+ is currently receiving the update. Still no word as to when that OTA will hit the global model, but it sure can't be far off now.
