If you are a proud HTC 8X owner, you would be happy to hear that the Windows Phone 8 GDR2 Update has started rolling out for the unlocked version of the device, as expected. Few days back, Samsung Ativ S units also received the update. We have even seen this information lately in a software update sheet released by the Australian carrier Telstra.
The update brings some new features including DataSense that allows users to track their data usage, FM Radio, Skype improvement, Improved HTML5 compatibility in Internet Explorer along with a few bug fixes and improvements. The DataSense feature depends on the location and carrier, so all users may not get it. These are features are not something that can be dubbed as “exciting”. The exciting version, GDR3, is expected to hit later this year that brings support for quad-core processors, larger displays, 1080p resolution and much more.
The update will be released gradually, so if you cannot see the update notification on your unlocked HTC 8X, you need to wait a little bit longer, or you can simply go to Settings > Phone Update > Check for updates. If you are lucky enough, you may get it manually.
Share your experience with us if you received the update. Any big improvements?
