If you weren’t aware, HTC hosted an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit this morning, putting themselves out there to answer questions from all their fans and naysayers. But before these interested parties were able to say anything, HTC made an announcement that they will be trying to change their image, starting with a promise; a promise that HTC will support new flagships for two years after they have been released, a bold promise considering very few OEMs have even achieved this for one of their phones.
One other gem from this AMA, which will have HTC One X and One X+ owners very happy, is that HTC is now reconsidering updating these phones to Android KitKat. This is a pretty big backflip considering HTC came out and officially said that the phone would not be supported past Android 4.2.2, but I think we can all agree this change a good thing. What was slightly suspicious was that HTC claimed that the update was originally scrapped due to a lack of cooperation from NVIDIA with regards to the Tegra 3 processor in some of the global One X devices, however the US versions all have Qualcomm processors.
