The newly announced HTC One X+ has appeared on HTC Australia’s website. When Ausdroid asked about the release date of the One X+, HTC Australia were very tight lipped:
“The HTC One X + was announced globally on 3 October 2012. However, HTC cannot comment on unreleased products in the Australian market.”
What does this tell us?
- They know when they’re going to release this in Australia.
- It’s going to be very soon! They don’t put phones up there for no reason.
They’re likely waiting for final paperwork to come through from one or more of the major carriers before announcing the Australian release date officially. Given that LTE is not listed in the specs there’s a little speculation starting to appear that Optus may be looking for an exclusive on this one, one thing is for sure in true HTC style they’re going to hit the market hard and fast while the competition is quiet.
Specs of the HTC One X+ are similar to that of the One X except for larger storage, a bigger battery, and a faster CPU. Whether or not LTE will find its way into the Australian model remains to be seen.
