Up until now, we’ve only been able to speculate what might be hidden within the upcoming HTC One X+. Today, HTC finally confirmed the juicy details. The HTC one X+ is essentially a refresh of the current flasghip, the HTC One X, with most of the updates being under the hood.
The most notable change is the upgrade in processor, which is now a faster 1.7GHz quad core Tegra 3 (AP37). Internal storage has been given a large boost, up to 64GB. Another improvement sure to please HTC fans is the increase in battery capacity, now up to 2100mAh from the previous 1800mAh. Surprisingly, the memory remains at 1GB, unlike it’s main competitor, the Samsung Galaxy S III which of course has 2GB.
The rear camera remains the same at 8MP/f2.0 with HTC’s ImageSense chip, but the front facing camera has been upgraded from 1.3MP to 1.6MP.
The external speaker has been given it’s own amplifier in order to improve sound quality and volume. An additional feature is also included to enable “tap and go” playback, which let’s you connect to Beats branded Bluetooth speakers via NFC.
On the software side, HTC’s Sense has been given a number of minor improvements, along with other HTC apps such as their impressive camera, which now has a number of additional modes. The HTC One X+ will also ship with Google’s latest flavour of Android, Jelly Bean.
As with the HTC One X, there will be two variants of the device. The European version ship with 3G/HSPA connectivity, while the US version will be LTE enabled. No news yet on which version we’ll receive here in Australia, or which carrier will take it on. We’ll hopefully get our hands on a unit when it’s available and bring you a detailed review.
