HTC One X+ coming to the U.S. as AT&T exclusive, quad-core Tegra 3 and LTE are on board

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.
