One S and One X to get Jelly Bean updates this month

HTC has announced a new Android smartphone called the HTC One X+, which is a refreshed version of HTC's original One X smartphone. The One X+ uses HTC Sense 4+ and runs the Android Jelly Bean operating system. 
 
The smartphone uses a 1.7 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and has 64 GB of internal storage. The smartphone also supports LTE networks and uses a 2100 mAh battery promising up to six hours of use.
 
The One X+ has Beats Audio for “better” sound quality and HTC Watch 2.0 streaming. The phone also gets HTC Get Started, which is a new web service that guides the user through the setup and personalization using a desktop web browser.

 
The One X+ will be available in Europe and North Asia starting in October with a launch in South Asian in November. The smartphone will be coming to North America at an undisclosed date.
 
In other news, HTC notes that the Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 4+ update will come to the HTC One S and One X in October. Carrier branded versions of the One S and One X smartphones will probably not get this update until later because of carrier testing and tweaking.

My recommendation when buying Android phones is to buy only high end devices - preferably a Nexus. If you need to save money, buy an outdated high end device. An outdated "top of the line" handset will have similar specs, yet better support, than a brand new low end phone. Plus, the build quality, camera, etc. will probably be better as well.

Yes, it's going to be nexus only for me when I upgrade. Considering I got my Desire S last year, my next upgrade is probably 3 years away.

I strongly second this. My recommendation for a cheaper Android phone is the Galaxy S2. It still a great device and has a lot of life left in it.
