HTC confirms One X and X+ won't be upgraded to Android 4.3 or higher

It looks like Android 4.2.2 will be the end of the upgrade roadmap for the HTC One X and X+, two of the company's primary flagship phones in 2012. The phone maker tweeted out -- and later confirmed to the press -- that neither handset will be upgraded to Android 4.3 or anything newer. As frustrating as this announcement is, we don't consider ourselves shocked: the original One X launched nearly two years ago, and we speculate that the 15-month-old X+'s Tegra 3 processor may have been the reason for its fate. Take a look at HTC's official statement below.

We can confirm that the HTC One X and One X+ will not receive further Android OS updates beyond Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5. We realize this news will be met with disappointment by some, but our customers should feel confident that we have designed both devices to be optimized with our amazing camera and audio experiences.
