The HTC One VX was ousted as one of the few phones from HTC to get the update to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean sometime in the near future and AT&T has finally made true on the leak.

With carriers and mobile makers moving at an incredible pace for new innovation, we normally see smartphones like the HTC One VX get left behind after one year, not exactly impressive coming on a two-year contract. This is one of the reasons we still see low satisfaction rates from low-end Android users, because support is gone after a few months.

Thankfully, we will see the first iteration of Jelly Bean come to the HTC One VX. This moves the phone up from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but it will not get photo sphere or any features from Android 4.2 and Android 4.3. Sense 4+ UI will be added to the HTC One VX, a slice away from Sense 5.

AT&T will handle the proceedings in the US, where the phone carrier will send out over-the-air updates for users. This is the first and possibly the last update the HTC One VX will get and it is a big one, we would recommend having full battery before grabbing it.

At the start price of $49 on a two-year contract, the HTC One VX was the middle of the line, not-great-but-works type phone. It had a dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 4.5-inch 540×960 display and 8GB of internal storage with expandable microSD slot.
