HTC 8X receiving a second OTA update

International HTC 8X owners have some more updating to do. Just two days after the 8X received an OS update it is now receiving a firmware update as well. An OS update is for the software alone, while a firmware update can fix some hardware things like screen brightness or volume. Usually the two are sent around the same time.

It’s not yet clear if this update includes anything important. WPCentral reports that this update was downloaded much faster than the previous OS update. Once again, this is for the international unbranded version of the 8X. AT&T and Verizon owners need not apply. We will update this post when more information is available.
