Vodafone Australia: HTC 8X Users Will Be Jumping Stragiht To GDR3 Skipping GDR2 Update

HTC 8X GDR3

Last week, we reported that Vodafone Australia announced that HTC have told them that they won’t be releasing the WP8 GDR2 update for 8X users. After so many customers got in touch with HTC and Vodafone regarding this update cancellation, HTC has announced that 8X users will be getting GDR3 update in the future.

Good news for owners of the Windows Phone 8X by HTC. After some concerns were raised by some customers regarding ongoing support for your phone, they got in touch to reassure us.

While the bad news is that you won’t be receiving GDR2, the good news is that you’ll be jumping straight to GDR3.

We’ve now updated the table below to reflect that.

We don’t have any timelines just yet, but you’re already looking in the right place to find out once we do. Keep an eye here each Thursday and as soon as we have more info on GDR3 for your Windows Phone 8X it’ll be here for all to read.

While the good news is that HTC 8X users will be getting GDR3 update in the future, but the bad news is that they have to wait for another few months while other OEMs like Nokia have already delivered their GDR2 stuff for their devices.

What do you think of this move from HTC?
