HTC One X+ Ships this month.

HTC is joining the fall phone release party:

The Verge:
HTC One X+ ships this month with bigger battery, more storage, and Android Jelly Bean
  • 2100mAh battery
  • 32GB or 64GB storage
  • 1.7GHz Quad Core Tegra 3
  • Android 4.1.1, Sense 4+
  • LTE
  • 1.6mp front-facing-camera (720p) 8mp rear camera.
  • 4.8" Super LCD2 1280x720 screen.
  • Near-Field Communication.
  • It's only available in matte black

Most notably, this phone marks the first success at including LTE and a quad core processor in the same device. Either nVidia and Qualcomm worked out their compatibility issues, or nVidia has built their own radio. Not sure which.


One X+ vs. One X

More pics from GSM Arena: http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_one_x_wi...-news-4884.php

I like HTC's no compromise attitude here. Quad core, LTE, NFC, 64GB, 2100mAh, HD screen, the works.

Nice. I also prefer super lcd over super amoled. But that bump for the camera lens is annoying to me.

while the North American version will be the subject of a separate announcement.
while still no removable battery and no sd card slot, I always liked the one x's "feel" and sense over the much better reviewed s3.

Yeah, I liked the HTC Sense over the Samsung Touchwiz but the GO launcher makes up for that. The HTC phone also feels more robust and not as light.

Same here, out of all the overlays, sense is definitely my favorite.

I've gotten by alright without expandable memory on my nexus (the included 32gb is enough for me) but a removable battery is a huge plus for me. I prefer a thicker device with better battery life, so I always opt for the extended battery. Not having that option would be annoying.

Great news! Have been eyeballing the normal One X from AT&T for a while on eBay in order to import one... This release means prices will go even lower!

battery is too small for a device with that resolution and should be 2500mah. i hope sense isnt as obtrusive on the OS as its been in the past

The One X got glowing reviews

A Jelly Bean update and bump in specs should make this very nice. I think the design looks much better than an S3

They improved the battery, the performance, the camera and the software.

If it gets a single point bump in 3 out of 4 of those compared to the previous version, it's at 8.8 with the iPhone 5.

Only reason why I never got it. I have all my music and contacts on my removable microsd card. It's nice to have, should be standard on all phones.

wow, those are some nice specs! I really wish they upgraded to a super amoled screen though. I put my one s next to an Evo LTE and the samoled has more vibrant colors and much, much deeper blacks. The SLCD2 looked washed out in comparison.

Me too. The one x screen almost looks like a simulated photo sticker. It pops out like that so good. And wraps the phone so well.
