    I have a Lumia 920 so don't follow the 8X forum often but I just noticed that Telstra posted an updated handset updates schedule yesterday and it looks like due to HTC cancelling GDR2 for the 8X that they are pushing through GDR3 quickly as testing is scheduled to start in late November. Its still a while away but at least the 8X owners have a light at the end of the tunnel for a future update.

    Handset updates - 13 September - Telstra Crowdsupport - 186927

    Apologies if this is old news and has been posted before.

    Telstra is Australia's largest mobile operator and regularly is one of the the first globally to announce testing of upcoming WP updates. This update schedule is specific for Telstra branded 8X's however as they say that the GDR2 update was cancelled globally and is being replaced by GDR3, I would expect that most mobile operators globally would be following a similar schedule to Telstra.

    I searched on google and no news about gdr3 for the international version. I guess it'll be a long wait.

    I think Telstra only posted this to their update schedule as there are a lot of Australian 8X owners that were upset about GDR2 being scrapped for the 8X. As I mentioned earlier, Telstra regularly are one of the first operators globally to announce the testing schedules so I think you will find that other carriers and unlocked country variants should get the update around the same time.
