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

HTC One X+ coming to T-Mobile with 1.7GHz Tegra 3+ processor?
A few weeks ago, we told you about a leaked screenshot that revealed two new handsets coming to T-Mobile in September. One was the BlackBerry Armstrong and all we know about it is that it is not a BlackBerry 10 flavored device and no, it is not flexible like Stretch Armstrong. The other name listed was the HTC Era 42 which vaguely reminds us of a real estate broker. But the word on the street is that the HTC Era 42 is a top shelf handset, a variant of the flagship HTC One X called the HTC One X +. The plus next to the name indicates that this will be powered by the new quad-core Tegra 3+ processor which will be clocked at 1.7GHz for this model.

While this is all speculation for now, the puzzle pieces are falling in place. Earlier this month, we told you about another mystery phone that showed up on the GLBenchmark site with a code name that had us calling it a sequel to the HTC One X. This device was running with a 1.7GHz processor that some reports were tagging as a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3. And while there were some hints that this device would launch via AT&T, nothing on GLBenchmark is chiseled into stone. Considering that the HTC One X is still a youngster, it makes more sense to believe that the device on GLBenchmarks was the HTC One X+ for T-Mobile.

Back in February is when speculation started about a variant of the HTC One X for T-Mobile. Because T-Mobile is not yet offering LTE service, any model of the phone for the nation's fourth largest carrier can offer a quad-core processor unlike the HTC One X for AT&T which has to use the dual-core Qualcomm Sanapdragon S4 because of the lack of integration between quad-core processors and LTE connectivity.

Is this their strategy all along? lol Well to be frank, even thought the Tegra 3 is very efficient, as well as ICS/JB, this will need a 2,500+ Milliamp battery...

Agreed, no bigger battery = no care.

Bigger battery in the same size foot print or smaller = awesome!

Yeah but it runs apps, Sense I think is the most complicated software there's is constantly running live themes and etc. Therefore you need a bigger battery take out the software and put something that takes less ram and you will have a better battery life.

HTC should learn from SG3 to have removable battery and memory expansion slot, and JB is a must.

okay, this is probably my biggest complaint against android didn't htc release their "flagship" like only a few months ago? i would be pissed if i paid two or three hundred for a flagship device only to have the company undercut me four months later with a better device i think it's a bigger problem because it isn't even a constant process it feels like a one two punch kind of a deal htc with the one x and motorola with the droid razrs relased phones and then quickly updated them just make it awesome the first time around like the sg3, geez

by the time it gets out to t-mobile, it will probably be 9-12 mnths removed from the last HTC model. Honestly, it does not bother me because these companies need to produce multiple models for money.

technically it is still basically the same Flagship phone they've already release albeit slightly upgraded, but at its heart still the same phone. having said that I'm excited about that even tho I've already bought and love my 32GB Galaxy S III Pebble blue. Always room for new tech!

What the he'll u guys talking about t-mobile does not have a one x they have the lower end one s..

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?

53. g2a5b0e unregistered

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?

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.

69. g2a5b0e unregistered

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.

71. g2a5b0e unregistered

I'm an idiot because you're wrong? You obviously can't make comments without resulting to petty insults. Love the maturity on this site. Grow up, guy.

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

You made a pointless comment. I can't really insult you any further because your stupid comments have done that for me. Next.

This is the reason I can't buy andriod phones anymore, they literally release a better phone every month or weeks. They need to slow down.

Are you going to stop buying food because every day they update the store with food with longer shelf life compared to what you got yesterday? No? I didn't think any different..

Exactly! I have my Galaxy S III and I absolutely love it. Will it always be the top end smart phone on the market forever? no. Will it make my phone any less spectacular once something new and slightly better come out? absolutely not, I will still love it just the same. - )

it's not that i want it to be the top forever its like buying a car that gets 60mpg and goes 0-60 in 6 seconds only to have them release a new version of the same car at the same price that gets 120mpg and does 0-60 in 4 seconds

15. ilia1986 unregistered

First of all - that new car isn't going to go to 120mpg. Maybe to 62 when it's a REALLY huge hardware improvement over the last model. Is the Note 2 going to be faster than the SGS3? Yes. Twice as fast? Definitely not. Second of all - that happens all the time. New stuff keeps coming up. The wise man does his research and makes his bet on the product which gets him the most bang for his buck.

okay, i used exaggeration for emphasis but that is what this is this is not a .2ghz bump, this is a significant update that could include things other than just the processor yes, new phones are coming out all the time but the note and the sg3 are not competitors... oh my gosh, samsung is copying apple. they've been leaving clues, i just had an epiphany sg3 backwards is...3gs. haha, weird i'm joking! i'm joking geez, it was just a random thought anyhow, i would not be pissed if i bought the sg3 and the note 2 came out it is a completely differnt phone i would be hella pissed if they came out with the sg3+ or something because it is identical to my phone, it is just better it is replacing my phone this is why it is a problem

35. ilia1986 unregistered

Most of the time - the benefit is insignificant. And again - if you plan ahead - you know what to buy, and when.

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.
