HTC 8X to receive Windows Phone 8.1 next month


HTC has sent out a tweet revealing that the HTC Windows Phone 8X will be receiving the Windows Phone 8.1 update starting late next month. This is the latest version of Windows Phone which comes pre-installed on the recently announced HTC One M8 for Windows.

With Windows Phone 8.1 users will get access to features like the Action Center for notifications, the Swype-style Word Flow keyboard, the voice activated personal assistant Cortana and more. A number of Nokia Lumia models have already been updated to Windows Phone 8.1.

Interestingly, last month Microsoft halted the Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview for both the HTC 8X and HTC 8S, due to the lack of drivers required for the update. HTC needs to send out the drivers for both models, and will do so with the official consumer update.

So now we know to expect the HTC 8X to receive the update in late October, which should make owners of the phone excited to know that Cortana is coming soon. At this moment, there is no indication on when the HTC 8S will receive the Windows Phone 8.1 update.
