After some initial confusion, the HTC One X+ Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Sense 5 update is indeed rollingl out in Asia and a noted leakster says that it will touch down in Europe at some soon.
While much of the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Sense 5 speculation has been hovering over the HTC One X and the HTC One S, the latter of which had its updates cancelled by HTC, it appears that the HTC One X+ has flown in under the radar and the device is currently getting Android 4.2 and Sense 5 in Taiwan.The update, and it’s full list of features, is live on HTC’s website,
In particular, HTC One X+ users in Taiwan are getting the update first, something that falls in line with HTC’s previous updates which have hit Taiwan first and then have moved on to other regions of the world.
@abishekpatel Maybe this week, but probably next week…

It’s unclear when this particular update might branch off but according to the well-sourced @LlabTooFeR, it could come to Europe as soon as next week or as late as next week. So it doesn’t appear as though HTC One X+ owners outside Asia won’t have long to wait.
That doesn’t apply to HTC One X+ owners on AT&T as AT&T has been notoriously slow at updating HTC’s devices with the HTC One X Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update coming months after the first update rolled out in Taiwan. AT&T has yet to confirm anything in regards to the update though owners will want to start tempering their expectations when it comes to timing.
HTC’s One X+ update brings both Android 4.2 and Sense 5, an upgrade over Android 4.1 and Sense 4+ which were running on the device in previous months. The software not only brings enhancements on the Android side of things but on the Sense side of things as well as Sense 5 offers a brand new look and some brand new features like HTC BlinkFeed.
Now that the HTC One X+ has received the update, the next in line should be the HTC One X and the HTC One XL which have been rumored to be getting updates in the coming weeks.
