HTC 8X

Windows Phone Central has begun to receive reports from users that their HTC 8X (UK Virgin Mobile and non-branded) are receiving updates today. The update, most likely a combo of firmware and the coveted GDR2 OS update (build 10327), will enable things like FM Radio, Data Sense (carrier dependent) and other improvements. This update follows Samsung's recent ATIV S update for unlocked devices.

We have not found an update for our AT&T-branded 8X, though we’ll update this article as more information comes in.

For those with the 8X, you may want to head into Settings > Phone Update and use the force-check to see if something is waiting for you. If you do get an update, please post your carrier (if any) and any new changes in comments. You can also find more information and discuss the update in our support forums: http://forums.windowscentral.com/htc-8x/

Thanks, Steffen S., Dennis A., and Plasmid, for the tips!
