HTC One X owners on Three can expect a very welcome battery-life boosting firmware update next month, addressing HTC’s 2012 flagship phone’s well publicised longevity problems.
Three disclosed its plans to make the very welcome upgrade available from May via its official Twitter customer service channel.
However, this will not be the 1.28 version of the firmware that other networks have already pushed out to phones and which also tackles the One X's battery problem. It will instead be a later build, yet to be identified by Three.
The carrier tweeted: “We're releasing another update after 1.28 which will address battery issues amongst other things - due in May.”
The cause of the HTC One X's longevity issues has yet to be officially established.
However, user testimonies on the XDA Developers forum suggest that it could be related to the phone’s brawny Tegra 3 processor and the way it manages power.
