HTC One X+ coming to the U.S. as AT&T exclusive, quad-core Tegra 3 and LTE are on board
Powered by the nation's largest 4G network, all three HTC devices will access the AT&T 4G LTE network and are equipped with enhanced audio and video features, making it easier--and faster - for customers to stay connected and entertained while on the go.
New HTC One Devices Coming Soon
AT&T, the exclusive provider of the HTC One X, will add two more exclusive devices from the popular HTC One series - the HTC One X+ and the HTC One VX.
The HTC One X+ will be the first AT&T smartphone to combine Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and a quad- core processor. It will also be the first smartphone in the U.S. to feature HTC Sense 4+. HTC One X+ combines superior performance, longer battery life and more internal storage - at 64 GB - with the iconic design of the original HTC One X, now in an exclusive Carbon Black finish.
A first in the industry, the 1.7 GHz Tegra 3 NVIDIA quad-core processor plus a battery-saving fifth core will give customers a unique "4 + 1" capability to save power using one core for everyday use and kicking into full quad-core mode for demanding apps, like video and gaming.
The HTC One X+ has a 4.7-inch, 720p HD screen and features the Jelly Bean predictive-touch keyboard as well as voice recognition. The device also builds on the impressive 8 megapixel rear- facing HD camera of the HTC One X that can quickly auto-focus and zero in on a subject. Perfect for still shots or video, the HTC One X+ integrates HTC's ImageChip which reduces noise, removes color bias and enhances the overall picture quality. The 64 GB of internal memory is non-partitioned to store more high quality photos, video, music, movies and apps.
The HTC One VX is ideal for those looking for an affordable Android smartphone and a premium experience. The HTC One VX sports one of the slimmest unibody form factors in the industry at just 9.19 millimeters thin, making it easy to hold and navigate. The 4.5-inch display is laminated with scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass which aids in durability and reduces light reflection. A 5-megapixel camera, which goes from lock screen to shooting photos in under a second, offers continuous shooting at 4 frames per second. For those that can't quite decide whether they want to capture the moment in pictures or video, it is possible to capture a still image from a video with VideoPic.
Windows Phone 8X by HTC to Arrive in November
Launching next month, the Windows Phone 8X by HTC will be the first-ever Windows Phone 8 smartphone with built-in Beats Audio technology. Beats Audio By Dre delivers authentic, studio- quality sound and the unique audio amplifier powering the 3.5mm audio jack and speaker boosts the signal for even better sound for music, video and even gaming, so you actually hear the music as it was intended. The 4.3-inch 720p HD display and 8 megapixel rear-facing camera allows you to capture and view great photos and video--even in low light.
"We have a long tradition of offering the best of HTC's world-class products," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president - Devices and Developer Services, AT&T. "A quad-core One X+, the awesome One VX and the exciting Windows Phone 8X by HTC mean that our customers will have the best selection of HTC smartphones this season."
"The HTC One X has been hailed as the best phone we have ever made, so our best smartphone just got better with the HTC One X+," said Mike Woodward, president of North America, HTC. "And the family of HTC products at AT&T is expanding to give consumers more choice. Whether they want the latest Android smartphone or the new Windows Phone 8X by HTC, we give consumers an incredible camera, Beats Audio and lust-worthy design in all our devices."
Imaging, Audio and HTC Sense 4+
The HTC One series sets a new standard for imaging with a camera that boasts amazing capabilities with VideoPic, the ability to take still photos and shoot videos at the same time, one-press Continuous Shooting and better quality images in low light environments.
The HTC One X+ improves on the camera capabilities of its predecessor** with a series of intelligent features powered by HTC Sense 4+. The new Auto Portrait mode on the front camera helps you capture high quality photos by intuitively detecting the human face at various angles. Sightseeing mode makes sure you'll always be ready to capture the moment, as only one touch of the power button bypasses the lock screen and launches directly into camera mode. And two new ways to view photos and videos in the gallery allow you to display albums according to when or where they were taken.
Exclusively available on HTC smartphones including the HTC One X+, HTC One X and HTC One VX, Beats AudioTM provides authentic, studio-quality sound that delivers the spirit of the original recording, from crisper vocals and deeper bass to more immersive gaming effects and video. The HTC One X+ also makes it easier to listen to music out loud, and through Sense 4+, introduces a new Tap and Go function, which allows you to connect the phone and your music to Beats speakers' when you tap them together***. To disconnect, it is just another quick tap on the speaker again.
The HTC One VX will run HTC Sense 4 with Android Ice Cream Sandwich. In the future, the original HTC One X and HTC One VX will be upgraded to HTC Sense 4+ with Android Jelly Bean and will include the improved camera capabilities and new Tap and Go function found in the HTC One X+.
AT&T customers have access to the nation's largest 4G network****, covering 275 million people. AT&T has two 4G networks that work together for customers, LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul. That means AT&T customers are able to enjoy a widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G experience on their compatible device as they move in and out of LTE areas. With other carriers, when you travel outside of their LTE coverage area, you may be on a much slower 3G network.
AT&T customers can find the Windows Phone 8X by HTC in AT&T retail stores and online in November. The HTC One X+ and HTC One VX will be available in the coming months. More information about AT&T's smartphone lineup is available http://www.att.com/wireless.

Now, my One X is an old phone haha. Glad it's coming to AT&T even though I probably won't get it. Kind of wish it got bigger battery since 2100 mAh is too standard now. Throw in 3000 and give SG3 a good fight haha.
3. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 6736; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
that's why i always wait till the best good phones comes out
6. xoutrageousx (Posts: 70; Member since: 22 Dec 2011)
with andriod phones coming out frequently....there is not really a "set time" when the best phones to come out though...that's the only problem.
2 months later and your phone is considered phone and outdated.
41. ian132 (Posts: 28; Member since: 20 Feb 2012)
Not the galaxy s2. It was the best phone even when it came out in the US 5 months later I think.
21. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
Have Htc still not learnd from previously, the same phone why didn't they use 2gb Ram, 1.7 CPU hardly makes any diffrence. they should'ev clocked it at 2.0 cause the Tegra CPU isn't all that.... Look at the Eperia and Eperia Arc S, not that much diffrence!. They should'ev up the battery to 2300mah.
25. XPERIA-KNIGHT (unregistered)
Im glad to see someone think on a higher note........although they could of made it better with the S4 pro and 2gb of ram...........it still is overall better and the design of it is enough to get it over the GS3 and the LG Optimus G......when you really look at it HTC might have failed to deliver a "complete" device but so have LG and Samsung!.......How? by not giving it a the best build quality thats how......And i know that LG has a better build than sammy this time around but the problem with LG would be its UI that would only be for a certain type of people.....which im not found of......and also its still an LG sorry but will their service and updates be on top of their game this year? So the overall winner to get so far this year is HTC because of updated specs and once again....better build quality

It got over 7000+ on quadrant. Pretty impressive for a 40nm processor.
2. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 6736; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
If it have a GOOD BATTERY LIFE & sD CARD I'LL BUYT IT
14. bigstrudel (Posts: 518; Member since: 20 Aug 2012)
You need an sd card with 64 gigs of internal memory?
4. TalkingTechy (Posts: 97; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)
Wow, very nice looking specs indeed! 64GB of internal storage? Who needs an SD card! Jelly Bean out of the box? Sweet! And quad core Tegra 3? Very cool and thanks for the slightly larger battery, but what does that do to battery life? They claim an additional few hours of talk time, but real-world performance will show us this.
24. theindianguy (Posts: 90; Member since: 30 Sep 2011)
I don't think battery life will be all that bad... but according to me, they pretty much nailed it with the specs.
5. cGmC11 (Posts: 117; Member since: 02 Apr 2012)
And have the HTC 8x Beats speaker amplifier!
7. Jeradiah3 (Posts: 1009; Member since: 11 Feb 2010)
"That won't be the case with the HTC One X+, however, as it will retain the 1.7GHz Tegra 3 silicon, thus becoming the first Jelly Bean flavored Android handset with a quad-core processor to be released for AT&T"
Maybe Im tripping, but isnt the Note 2 coming with Jelly Bean and a quad-core processor installed.................therefore making it a first for AT&T???
10. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2725; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
Well, technically, it depends on which one comes out first, but more than likely, it will the Note 2.
39. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4109; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
It is, but it depends which makes it first to be *released*, not announced. Whichever becomes publicly available from AT&T first officially will become the first quad-core from the carrier.
8. hung2900 (Posts: 821; Member since: 02 Mar 2012)
I guess they will keep their powerful non-multitasking "feature" with 1GB of RAM =))
Maybe its processor is stronger than the one on Note 2 (on paper) but in fact no where near.the lvl of Note 2 in terms of software, user experience and innovation.
15. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2725; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
I completely agree. The GN2 kills this phone in all those aspects. Not to mention, the GN2 will be widely available, whereas AT&T will be the sole U.S. carrier of the One X+.
26. XPERIA-KNIGHT (unregistered)
but does anyone care about build quality?? i mean cause samsung doesnt seem to care that much.......HTC wins for that alone in my book.......unless your a complete nerd and only care about features! not tryna be rude about it but HTC once again delivers beauty and power over samsung with just power
28. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2725; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
I love HTC's build quality, man. I own a T-Mobile G2 & it's a tank. But, the fact of the matter is that I almost never drop my phone, so build quality isn't the biggest issue for me.
30. XPERIA-KNIGHT (unregistered)
ummmmmm ok what about the looks of your phone?? does that count for anything? cuz HTC looks a hell of alot better than samsung......and also their screens are way better than sammys amoled
52. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2725; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
Looks are completely subjective, man. I never thought any of Samsung's phones looked that great until the S3. Overall, I do think HTC's phones look better, no doubt, though. Also, HTC uses AMOLED screens, too. Look no further than the One S. But, the whole LCD vs. AMOLED argument is completely subjective, too.
48. darkskoliro (Posts: 997; Member since: 07 May 2012)
build quality doesnt just affect you dropping it...its just the everyday use, looking at it, feeling its texture. all very important
17. bigstrudel (Posts: 518; Member since: 20 Aug 2012)
2 gigs of ram is just a hype feature that Samsung uses to attract techies.
9. PowTheBowl (Posts: 86; Member since: 19 Apr 2012)
Who says LTE and a Quad core processor can't be in one phone?
58. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4109; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Says Qualcomm... Unless you buy their LTE chips.
11. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2725; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
These exclusivity deals are a huge part of why HTC is failing right now in North America. When did HTC start thinking that putting their most wanted upcoming phones on only one carrier so that only 30% of all potential customers are available to buy them was a good idea? I've been a huge fan of HTC since I bought my first smartphone, the T-Mobile G2, but I can no longer stand behind them as they continue to make stupid decisions. This is simple economics. You try to make your product as widely available as possible, therefore giving it the greatest opportunity to reach the most hands. How hard is that to understand?
19. 14545 (Posts: 1154; Member since: 22 Nov 2011)
STOP WITH THE STUPID CARRIER EXCLUSIVES HTC. Geez. You wonder why you're in the red, guess what. This is it. There is a reason Moto is in the red too, people don't want carrier exclusive phones. I am looking to buy a new phone currently, and I don't plan on replacing my rezound with another HTC product due to stupid crap like this. I guess I'll just get the S3 even though it isn't my top choice.
27. XPERIA-KNIGHT (unregistered)
exactly...........exactly.......i mean not everybody is on AT&T right? and they are in this battle for sales right? So why are they making it available to only one carrier?? makes no sense at all
55. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4109; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
You know AT&T is only exclusive to the name, right? Meaning, nobody can have the One X+... However, if HTC were to make the exact same phone, give it a slightly different design, and a different name, AT&T couldn't say much about it.
You know there was a long-lasting rumor about this coming to T-Mobile having stock Android. It would be apart of their G-Series and would probably be called the G3 or something. Same Tegra 3, same battery, same display, same camera, probably just a different design.
56. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2725; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
Good point. That's actually something I didn't consider. Very good possibility it could happen. For instance, One X + micro SD & bigger battery = Evo 4G LTE. In other words Evo 4G LTE > One X, if only Sprint's network wasn't garbage.
59. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4109; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Exactly. Way too many people start bashing HTC for exclusivity when the only thing "exclusive" is the name.
23. Bernoulli (Posts: 1599; Member since: 01 Sep 2012)
So what about the earlier article that said it had a t-mobile brand???
45. Bernoulli (Posts: 1599; Member since: 01 Sep 2012)
No, it cl foolearly said HTC one x+ fool
53. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2725; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
Before you start calling names, be sure you know exactly what you're talking about. Are you referring to this picture?
The T-Mobile branded phone on the right there does not say One X+ anywhere on it. It may look like one, but it could be anything.
60. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4109; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
The One X+ is the model that the T-Mobile variant will be based off of, but it will not be called the One X+. It will probably be a part of their G series that has stock Android, and it might have a slightly different design. Just because a One X+ has T-Mobile branding doesn't make it a One X+, the name will be different when it makes its way to T-Mobile.
32. suneeboy (Posts: 169; Member since: 02 Oct 2012)
So Apple releases the iPhone 5 as the successor to the iPhone 4S and people complain that it's just a marginal update (which it is). Now HTC releases the One X+ and people are drooling over it? It's also a marginal upgrade. I don't care either way, but the Apple bias by the posters on this site is ridiculous.
35. Jonathan41 (Posts: 532; Member since: 22 Mar 2012)
HTC didn't hype this phone up like it was going to change the world like Apple. The One X+ is a marginal update just as the name suggest and it's a pretty darn good one. Furthermore, HTC didn't have a whole year to come up with something new just to disappoint with a modest, marginal update at best.
44. suneeboy (Posts: 169; Member since: 02 Oct 2012)
Point is, the complaints are that these "marginal upgrades" should've been included on the original. Seems to only apply to Apple products and not others, but I guess I'm singling out the troll comments as opposed to the good comments like yours. Apple doesn't say they will change the world, they just say they've made the best iPhone. Which they technically have, although the high-end Android products have surpassed it. HTC doesn't hype the phone, because they don't have the machine and user base that Apple has. Like all companies, they would if they could...Do you agree?
33. Jonathan41 (Posts: 532; Member since: 22 Mar 2012)
What happened to all the T-Mobile talk? Doesn't make any difference for me but, I'm just wondering
36. Jphones (Posts: 235; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
Is it just me or does HTC make the sexiest phones. that black and red color scheme is fantastic. Ha they might be killing it in sales hands down the best design schemes on the market
37. haydenb (Posts: 21; Member since: 24 Nov 2011)
I have always liked the One X but with only 16gb of memory available and not always having access to the cloud. Im seriously considering this to be my next phone. With 64gb who needs an SD card and with Jelly Bean on board especially project butter and a quad core processor should make this thing really fly.
40. frustyak (Posts: 169; Member since: 08 Mar 2010)
I'm due for my upgrade in January, and this may be on my wish list when the time comes. My first Android phone was the little HTC Aria, which was great. I have since upgraded to the Motorola Atrix, and even though it's got much better specs, I never fell in love with it - Moto Blur, flimsy build, random reboots. Now that Motorola has kicked Atrix owners to the side of the road by not upgrading us to ICS, I'm definitely fleeing Motorola when I get the chance, and I just may go back to HTC.
42. Althorius (Posts: 23; Member since: 25 Sep 2012)
It ain't the first android quad core. Galaxy note ii was the first.
54. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2725; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
They said first for AT&T. The GN2 isn't out stateside yet. One of these two will more than likely be the first.
43. haydenb (Posts: 21; Member since: 24 Nov 2011)
Ive been trying to sell my Atrix 2 for a while. I never fell in love with it, the lack of development for the device really about the only plus i will say is that moto blur is getting more and more like stock android. Now im really gonna try and sell my device. I kinda regret getting rid of my Inspire. HTC makes really nice phones
57. jcpwn2004 (Posts: 314; Member since: 18 Jan 2012)
Hmm i was thinking the s3 might be my next phone but this is going to make the decision tough. I prefer the design to the s3 and the specs are nice!
