It appears that a few of HTC’s One X variants have started receiving the eagerly awaited Android Jelly Bean OTA update in Asia, as was announced by HTC North Asia General Manager Jack Tong yesterday.

The update, weighing in around 350MB, brings Android 4.1.1 (still not the latest 4.1.2) and of course an update to HTC’s own launcher and framework, HTC Sense.

Initial reports over at XDA are positive, with performance increases in the UI quite apparent. There are also a few new features in the Sense components, such as an updated keyboard and tweaked notification pull down screen.

As is often the case with Australian carriers, we’ll be waiting somewhat longer to get the update, but of course we’ll no doubt see custom ROMs based on this build appearing on XDA pretty soon.
