Verizon HTC 8X to get Windows Phone 8.1 in late October

HTC 8X on Verizon is getting the Windows Phone 8.1 update in... sometime in late October. That's at least according to a recent tweet from the official HTC Twitter account.

HTC Tweet

As you're painfully aware, Windows Phone 8.1 was announced by Microsoft in early April. Since then we've slowly seen the OS rolled out to consumers. A lot of Lumia handsets have the update, but our friends rocking the HTC 8X have been left out of the fun so far.

You'll need to do a little bit more waiting for Windows Phone 8.1 if you don't go the Preview for Developers route. We'll let you know when it does drop in October.
