The HTC One Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update is thought to be rolling out tomorrow, thus beginning HTC’s Android 4.2 roll outs. The HTC One X, HTC’s flagship from last year is rumored to be on its heels with the software now thought to be coming soon, possibly as soon as July.
Earlier today, we learned that the HTC One Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update might be rolling out to owners tomorrow. The head of HTC Russia claimed that it would arrive in mid-June and the new information, from an HTC France ambassador, and backed by an HTC leakster, suggests that it could hit devices in less than 24 hours.
The HTC One Android 4.2 update is thought to be the first in a long list of them and while HTC isn’t saying anything for sure, speculation puts the HTC One X Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update being on the horizon.
Previously, rumors suggested that it would arrive sometime this summer, no specific date given. Now, it appears that the update is closer than ever with @LLabTooFeR, a noted HTC developer and leaker, claiming that the HTC One X Android 4.2 update is near. This statement was in turn, met with a response fro Yves Wi, an HTC France ambassador, who claims that the HTC One X could see Android 4.2 roll out in July.
@hawk1902 HOX update should be near as well ;)

That is likely much closer than some HTC One X owners anticipated and if true, could mean that we’re only three weeks or so away from an HTC One X update to Android 4.2. HTC has yet to confirm anything which means that this is all just speculation at this point but given the wide adoption of the HTC One X, it wouldn’t be surprising to see it on the forefront of HTC’s Android 4.2 and Sense updates.
@llabtoofer I think July… For One S no information for me and you ?

This timing likely has to do with the international HTC One X though. Owners of the AT&T HTC One X will likely have to wait much longer for their update to arrive. And if Android 4.1 was any indication, it could be a several month delay for AT&T owners.
The HTC One X Android 4.2 update is thought to be bringing the new Sense 5 to the table, software that HTC promised to HTC One X owners earlier this year.
