HTC 8X receiving Update 3 around the world

Earlier today, the Lumia 1020 picked up an update that helped address some imaging and touch issues with the phone. Not to be left out of the conversation, the HTC 8X is reportedly received Update 3 around the globe. You read that right, Update 3 is rolling out to international versions of the HTC 8X.

Update 3, previously known as GDR3, is rolling out to users all over the planet. We’re getting reports that an over-the-air (OTA) update is showing up for some folks that brings their unlocked handset the latest version of Windows Phone.

As you know, Update 3 can be installed on developer unlocked devices right now. This rollout marks the second rollout the general public is receiving. Last week another HTC device, the 8XT on Sprint, received the update.

Update 3 is notable for bringing support for 1080p displays and quad-core processors. In addition you’re getting things like driving mode, Bluetooth fixes, improved support for custom ringtones and more. Head to our Update 3 page for the latest.
