Instagram is finally getting with the times and is in the process of allowing users to display higher res images on the popular platform.
Initially, images uploaded to Instagram were only being displayed at 640 x 640 resolution, which is markedly small by today’s standards. But starting last week it seems that images being uploaded are being saved in 1080p resolution, probably in the process of getting the platform ready for the switch.
The folks at Instagram has released another update which finally supports the HTC One X. To download, head over to Google Play Store.

For the artsy people, Instagram is a popular photo sharing app which comes with variety of funky effects and filters. Unfortunately Instagram has always been exclusive to iOS devices which leaves out Android users until now.
With growing popularity, Instagram is said to be releasing an Android version and they have 2 developers working on it right now. There’s no mention of availability but its Chief Executive is excited to see its user base double once it is released. Currently Instagram has about 14-15 million users worldwide and expansion is obviously crucial for their business.
