HTC One X+ coming to the U.S. as AT&T exclusive, quad-core Tegra 3 and LTE are on board
Wow, that didn't take long. Only hours after the HTC One X+ was unveiled officially, we now know where U.S. consumers will have the chance to get it from. AT&T just announced that it will be the exclusive U.S. carrier to offer the HTC One X+ this fall.

Now, some of our readers probably know that the U.S. variant of the HTC One X has a Snapdragon S4 processor instead of the Tegra 3 chip found in the smartphone's international version. Swapping the chips was necessary in order to make the device LTE network friendly. 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.

Another specs upgrade that makes the One X+ better than its older variant is the upgraded battery, which now has a capacity of 2,100mAh. HTC promises that the new cell should provide up to 6 more hours of talk time. In addition, the smartphone will come standard with 64GB of on-board storage, which is quite generous, we must admit.

When it comes to software, the HTC One X+ will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which is the most up-to-date version of Google's mobile platform. On top of it will be installed HTC's custom interface called Sense 4+ with features like front-facing camera enhancements and the ability to launch the main camera with a press of the power button.

The HTC One X+ will be made available through AT&T over the forthcoming months, although no exact date has been specified yet. Pricing also remains to be announced.

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.

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2 months later and your phone is considered phone and outdated.

Not the galaxy s2. It was the best phone even when it came out in the US 5 months later I think.

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.

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.

You need an sd card with 64 gigs of internal memory?

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.

I don't think battery life will be all that bad... but according to me, they pretty much nailed it with the specs.

"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???

Well, technically, it depends on which one comes out first, but more than likely, it will the Note 2.

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.

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.

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+.

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

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.

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

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.

build quality doesnt just affect you dropping it...its just the everyday use, looking at it, feeling its texture. all very important

2 gigs of ram is just a hype feature that Samsung uses to attract techies.

Who says LTE and a Quad core processor can't be in one phone?

Says Qualcomm... Unless you buy their LTE chips.
