HTC One X+ Announced With Quad-core 1.7 GHz Tegra 3

HTC has announced the One X+, an updated version of its flagship smartphone. Several significant improvements make it to the refreshed smartphone, which isn't bigger in size, though slightly heavier.

The most notable addition with the One X+ is the change in SoC; the Nvidia Tegra 3 AP37 has replaced the AP33 in the One X, consequently removing Qualcomm’s MSM8960. It'll run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, as well as boasting an Intel X-Gold XMM6260 or the MDM9215 baseband chipset for the U.S. and global market, respectively.

Elsewhere, the AP37 has received a speed increase of 13 percent from 1.5GHz to 1.7GHz, while the GPU speed has also been raised by 25 percent to 520MHz. The GPU can now handle a primary display resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 (full HD). Comparatively, the HTC One X could only handle a 1,366 x 800 resolution.

The HTC One X+ also features 1GB of RAM, which is accompanied by either 32GB or 64GB onboard storage. An 8-megapixel rear camera with AF/LED, an 1.6-megapixel front camera, a 4.7in 1,280 x 720 pixel display, as well as a 7.77Whr 2100mAh battery round off the features.

"We are taking the HTC One X to a new level with the introduction of the new HTC One X+," said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. "Our customers will have super-fast browsing, an even better camera and more immersive entertainment with Beats Audio."

Based on internal benchmarks, HTC said the One X+ non LTE is up to 27 percent faster than the HTC One X's non LTE. The refreshed smartphone also provides up to 50 percent extra talk time for the LTE version.

The HTC One X+ will be available throughout Europe and North Asia sometime during this month, with pricing details yet to be unveiled. North America, meanwhile, will have its own announcement regarding the availability of the device, so stay tuned.

    The original OneX was already a battery muncher, so they decided to stick a faster SoC into it? lol.
    Anyway, loving all this competition. Lots of great choice out there and many more by the end of the year.

    I'd only recommend Samsung Android phones since they provide the best updates for phones.
    Get an HTC, LG, Motorola (past ones) and you're stuck after 6-12 months with no more OS updates supported by the manufacturer.

    By your reasoning, you should only consider Nexus phones. My GS3 is still waiting for its JB OTA update, HTC announced One X and S to get JB this month, so really I dont think Samsung is any better than other manufacturers.

    The battery has been upgraded to 2100mah though, and if you root/s-off (which I assume readers here do) then underclocking/undervolting is a viable option.

    Well, the One X+ has nice-enough specs but still no removable battery. Why would one want it as opposed to the SGS3?

    I think you do not completely understand what I am saying. Being the first out with an update is not my point. Samsung is going to have both the S2 and S3 on JB. It is probably going to be the S3 first but they will support the S2 as well.

    Nothing you mentioned does not contradict what I said that HTC, LG, Motorola typically only provide updates for 6-12 months. Will the above manufacturers support phones that are ~2 years old on JB? S2 will be close to 2 years old and it will support JB by the end of the year.
