Verizon HTC 8X looks set for Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1

For those of you using a HTC 8X on Verizon, today is a good news kind of day. In similar fashion to the recent Lumia Denim updates pushed out by the carrier, official details have surfaced today suggesting that the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1, well, update, is imminent for the 8X.

The PDF detailing what's in the update is dated today, February 12, so fingers are crossed that we'll be seeing it on devices very soon.

The last we heard on updates for the 8X was back in October 2014. It's a shame it's taken so long, but late is better than never. It adds a ton of features to the 8X with one of the biggest being Cortana.

There's no word on when it'll push out, but definitely keep an eye on your devices. If you want to find out more, hit up the source link below.
