Today, we have some good news for those rocking the HTC One X outside of the United States.  Your device is now eligible to receive an update to Android 4.0.4 and should receive it shortly.  The Android 4.0.4 update offers some enhancements and improvements to the Sense UI, and while it is not a Jelly Bean update, it’s still nice to HTC respond to issues on the One X and rectify them in a timely manner.

To begin, the update changes how the Recents capacitive button works on the One X.  For example, users can now change the settings on the Recents button in order to make it display menu settings when long pressed.  On pre-ICS apps, having the ability to toggle menu options is important and a feature many One X owners wanted the option to implement.  In addition, the browser is revamped to efficiently switch between tabs, and the camera’s autofocus and white color balance were each improved.

I imagine it is only a matter of time before HTC pushes a similar update to the One S and One V in order to make the same changes to Sense 4.  In case your HTC One X has yet to receive the official Android 4.0.4 update, you can always manually pull it by navigating to Settings -> About Phone -> Software Updates and it should find the update.
