Welcome to Android Advice and Tutorials.
If you have an International version of the HTC One X you can now grab the update from Android 4.0.3 to Android 4.0.4. This update comes soon after AT&T’s version received the update, which seems a bit backwards from the way updates are usually released.
The update to Android 4.0.4 on the international HTC One X has improved the HTC Sense experience by giving the ability to access app menu’s with the recent app key, improvements to the browsers tab management, and enhanced the camera a bit. Besides the physical improvements that you may see there has also been enhancements to the HTC One X memory, stability, and overall browsing experience.
HTC released a statement on the HTC One X Android 4.0.4 update seen below:
As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure customers are receiving software updates that improve their user experience, we are pleased to announce our next upgrade for the HTC One X will be released on August 10th.
The primary update will include an upgrade to Android version 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), in addition to an improved Sense experience which will: enable the ability to map menu function to the ‘recent app’ key (improving visual presentation in non ICS apps like Facebook); improve tab management in the browser with a dedicated tab switching button and enhance camera capabilities such as white balance and continuous autofocus. Furthermore, customers can expect enhancements to memory, platform stability and the overall browsing experience. Other improvements include a Single Sign-On for Facebook allowing user access across applications and browsers and upgrades to Beats audio, which reflect our dedication to providing an authentic sound experience.
From a developer perspective, we are expanding SDK support for Media Link and providing a framework for video call applications to achieve improved performance and quality.
Whenever those of you that have an International HTC One X get the update please let us know how it goes via comments below. We have seen this update already on the AT&T version of the popular device go over without a hitch but would like your input.
The Samsung Galaxy S II is currently getting the Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich update even with the release of the Galaxy S III. Samsung has started pushing out the Android 4.0.4 update to the Galaxy S II which has been running until now Android 4.0.3.
With the push of Android 4.0.4 it brings the Samsung Galaxy S II to the most up to date version of Android without taking Jelly Bean into account. Those that are hoping for the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will likely see it on the S II although will still have a while to wait before its available.
This update to the Galaxy S II will not be pushed over the air although it can be easily obtained via Samsung Kies. Currently the update is available via Kies in a few countries for the International and Global versions of the S II. Once the update is verified to be successful on these devices the US variants of the Galaxy S II will start to see the update.
If you have an International version of the Samsung Galaxy S II open Kies and get updating. After you update let us all in the US know how its going and any bugs or new features you see.
Sony promised that most of their 2011 Android devices would be getting the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update this year and it seems they are making good on this promise. The two devices that are now getting the update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich are the Sony Xperia Arc and Sony’s Xperia Neo. Both devices will still be on Kernel version 2.6.32. These will likely be the last devices to get the upgrade from Sony with any new device coming with it out of the box.
The update brings many UI improvements and all of the features that we have grown to love in Android 4.0. Sony will be updating these devices as needed from ICS to newer builds of the same OS for bug fixes and such.
