Sorry, HTC One X and One X+ users: the company revealed earlier Monday that both handsets have seen their last Android updates. In a statement to The Verge, HTC wrote: 

We can confirm that the HTC One X and One X+ will not receive further Android OS updates beyond Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5. We realize this news will be met with disappointment by some, but our customers should feel confident that we have designed both devices to be optimized with our amazing camera and audio experiences.

The One X and One X+ were both launched in 2012, prior to HTC's recent flagship, the One, which it announced early last year.

Although Google said that it would stop supporting its own Nexus hardware after about 18 months, other manufacturers out there continue to support aging hardware. For instance, Samsung's aging handsets, the Note II and the Galaxy S III, are still thriving on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, even if the manufacturer is sometimes late to the update game. There are even rumors that both of the handsets will receive KitKat sometime this year.
