HTC One X Wi-Fi problems confirmed by phone-maker, redesign on way

HTC has acknowledged the much-reported Wi-Fi connectivity issues with the One X and is working on a fix, the phone-maker has announced.

The glitch occurs when users hold their handset in a certain way (sound familiar?), but can be ameliorated if more pressure is applied to a specific part of the handset.

The good news today if you’ve already shelled out for a One X is that HTC is working on solution to the problem to boost signal strength.

And the arguably even better news, if you’ve yet to take the plunge, is that it’s also planning to change the design of the handset to permanently kibosh the ‘death grip-style’ problem.

HTC told Cnet: "After investigating isolated reports of Wi-Fi connectivity issues in the HTC One X, we have identified a fix that strengthens the area of the phone around the Wi-Fi antennae connection points.

"While many customers have not experienced any problems with signal strength, we have taken immediate steps to implement a solution in our production process to prevent this issue from happening in the future."

The phone-maker added: "HTC is committed to making sure every customer has a great experience and we apologise for any inconvenience this issue may have caused while we conducted a thorough investigation."

HTC is expected to fix the Wi-Fi bug via an upcoming firmware update. If that doesn’t work, maybe some kind of iPhone 4-esque bumper giveaway is in order?
