HTC One X+ coming to T-Mobile with 1.7GHz Tegra 3+ processor?

0. phoneArena 25 Jul 2012, 12:13 posted on

That mysterious HTC Era 42 handset that showed up on a leaked T-Mobile screenshot a few weeks ago is apparently the HTC One X+; and what does the plus sign indicate? How about a 1.7GHz Tegra 3 plus processor of course!...

but that adds to my point
you guys have had the htc one x for a while now
we just got it
and now they are releasing a new update to it
this is where the market sucks and where it should change to make it more consumer friendly

nokia, apple, and blackberry all have very clear, very understandable line ups that do what they want them to
i am refering to windows 8 and bb10 not the past stuff
there will be three or four lumia devices, it will be easy to know what you are getting into, you can make an educated choice without having to worry about them releasing a slightly beefed up model two months after you buy
and the expereince won't suffer for it, because they can focus on a few premium products
rather than having to deal with hundreds of slightly different phones that all need to be coded differently because they each have a slightly different advertiseable feature

Yes, you just got the HTC one X. But we might soon get the HTC one X2 or whatever it's called - so you must choose - buy the One X now, or wait for a bit until the X2 comes along. That depends on how much you need you wait, and how advanced the X2 is compared to the X. It's called market research.

Now, the advantage of Android over all the diephones, Nokias, blackberries whatever, is that even a 2 year old phone - let's say - the Nexus S - get's the latest software version - Android 4.1 in this case - today. Heck, even a 3 year old phone will be capable of running 4.1 via a custom Rom.

So basically since it's inconvenient for you, people who have different upgrade schedules must make do with less choice?

Yea, but the Lumia was already behind the curve when it first came out. Obsolete out the door.

More choice for consumer is never a bad thing. But HTC should care about those who bought their devices with timely updates.

aaa no, but it doesnt mean i will buy the new food on the shelf either.... I would probably walk in the store and say "wow" look at the new stuff, but once i seen the "new" price i would then continue to buy what i have always been buying...seannyc is right in a way and the only way to keep up with this flow would to be either satisfied with what you have, or you can sell what you have to get what you want....your choice...the thing is although these new phones are getting stronger and quicker, the apps and requirements have been LONG met with the current chipsets they have in them now.....There really isnt any thing you could throw at these phones that it wouldnt be able to handle so upgrading is almost pointless unless you're just a tech freak and cant ignore the hype of new technology trying to make you feel like you are missing out on something...

The One S and One X are the same aside from their screens and sizes of internal memory....What the hell are YOU talking about?

Then don't buy it. It's that simple.

I guarantee you that in 6 - 12 months - there will be so many graphically - and CPU - intensive apps - that your 1Ghz 512MB Ram smartphone won't be able to handle it. Look at PCs during the mid 2000's. Let's say 2006 - the dawn of the dual core processors. Everything except high end games could be run by a single core 2Ghz machine with 512MB of Ram. Look at 2012 - today - that machine would now struggle to run anything more than a web browser. And why? Because there was an explosion in multi-core CPUs, and everyone started taking advantage of it.

Actually not true. They have the same internal memory in the U.S., but the One S not only has a smaller screen, it has a lower resolution qHD screen as opposed to the One X's 720p S-LCD screen. Another reason the One S is considered lower end than the One X is because the international version of the One X has a quad-core processor, while the One S has a dual. The international One X also has double the internal memory.

So shouldn't high end phones have a better battery?

What if your upgrade was in 2 months wouldn't you want to get the best phone for that time frame not a phone that was released in April?

The Razr Maxx is kinda old now but is still a sick ass phone with Ice cream sandwich and the best battery on the market. If your phone does what it needs to for now then why should you be mad about a new phone?

The Lumia 900 wasn't a high end phone though?

I say this over and over, peoples contracts expire at different times so say they were gonna get the SGS3 when there contract was up oh look at that a better phone is coming out that's perfect for them.

That doesn't matter to me because the tegra 3 is 40 nanometer architecture design while the kraits are 28 nm.... CPU wise the kraits will be just as good as tegra 3 simply for the fact that the architecture is much more advanced. Tegra 3 is great and all but when you sit down and look at the chipsets specs, it seems that it was rushed out for phones and tablets (Don't get me wrong, it is still great). Not to bash Nvidia but this has been the year of the Snapdragon, easily..

Your comment was pointless. I already pointed out the only difference was the screens. We are talking about the US versions not the International versions so your comment about the quad core processor is invalid. Next.

Don't try to be dismissive because you were wrong. You can just admit it instead.

Nobody is being dismissive. Fact is you are wrong and an idiot. You made a pointless comment and brought up the international version of the One series of phones when this article is about the US versions coming to T-Mobile US. Get over it. Thanks.

The Aceveda guy is obviously but hurt... there is a huge difference screen size screen resolution and the type of screen even used and the processor and the battery is unknown... The morons on this Site always amaze me

larger battery capacity & 2GB RAM would be great

14. g2a5b0e (Posts: 3733; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)


I'm with you on that. With Samsung already futureproofing their flagship phones with 2GB of RAM, there's no reason HTC shouldn't do the same. I would also like to see all that's the been mentioned above--a bigger battery capacity (at least 2,000 mAH), removable battery, & expandable storage. I don't truly expect them to include all those features, but they would be truly knocking it out the park if they did. In any event, this is looking like the phone I'll be upgrading to when I'm due in 3 months.
