HTC Wants To Bring KitKat To One X, Blames NVIDIA For Its Troubles

HTC, during an AMAA (ask me almost anything) session on Reddit, revealed that the company did want to update the One X to Android 4.4 KitKat. However, plans for the same were scrapped as the Tegra 3 equipped global variant would have been left out from receiving the same. HTC blames NVIDIA for their poor support (Tegra T33 and T37 SoCs used in the HTC One X and One X+ respectively), which is the reason that the company had to scrap KitKat upgrade plans for their 2012 flagships.

The HTC One X in the US runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. An update could certainly have been worked out for the device, but international One X owners would feel bad (leading to a possible backlash) if HTC were to proceed. Thankfully, the session ended on a positive note.

"We're now actively exploring how we can make the jump to 4.4."
