A while ago, we were telling you that HTC 8X owners reported various issues when they tried to install the preview form of Windows 10 Mobile. Later on, it was suggested that a fix was in the works for those who were affected by botched Windows 10 Mobile updates.

Now, unfortunately, it seems that HTC 8X owners have to call it quits when it comes to their Windows 10 Mobile dreams, HTC’s UK arm has officially confirmed that there will be no more updates released for the device which was unveiled back in 2012. The company said the following on Twitter:

There are no further updates planned for the HTC Windows phone 8X currently

Windows 10 Mobile not coming to HTC 8X

The device is currently running Windows Phone 8.1 and many were waiting for Windows 10 Mobile, but the the company isn’t planning to release any further updates for the 8X, so I guess those who are still using the device will just have to accept the reality.

If you are interested in another Windows smartphone from HTC, you could be interested in the HTC One M8, but we don’t know if that device will be getting Windows 10 Mobile, either.

And if you were wondering, no, HTC 8x owners can’t upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile via the Windows Insider preview program either. What do you think about this move?
