HTC Updates the One X, Calls it the One X+
HTC today announced the One X+, a major update to the hardware and software of the One X. The One X+ looks the same as the One X with a polycarbonate shell, but has dramatically different internal components. The One X+ has a faster 1.7GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor paired with 1GB of RAM. Internal storage has been boosted to 64GB, the battery has been enlarged to 2100mAh, and the One X+ will be HTC's first device to ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on board. Other features of the One X+ include NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 4.7-inch 720p display with Gorilla Glass 2, DLNA, MHL, Beats Audio, and an 8-megapixel camera. The HTC One X+ supports worldwide HSPA+ networks, and a separate version will support LTE. So far, no U.S. carriers have said they will sell the One X+, but HTC said an announcement regarding North American availability of the One X+ is forthcoming. The global version will ship starting in November.
