And everyone knows ahead of time this will be its last update

In an unfortunate flow of events, HTC has just confirmed that the last update for the AT&T variant of the HTC One X+ is on its way to users. After independently confirming to users that the One X and One X+ will not move beyond Android 4.2.2, HTC has just explained that that very update has passed testing and will be hitting AT&T users' devices later this week.

Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5 customizations will be a solid improvement to a device that went on sale back in October of 2012, but it will always come bittersweet knowing ahead of time that it will be the last software update that handset will ever see.

If you're using an HTC One X+ on AT&T, be sure to keep an eye on your device for an update in the coming days.
