HTC One X+ is official with 1.7GHz Tegra 3 chip, bigger battery, Jelly Bean flavored
And just like that, all rumors and speculation have been put to rest as the HTC One X+ was made officially official. Just as we expected, we are being introduced to an upgraded HTC One X with a faster processor and a longer-lasting battery, all the while offering more storage space for apps and media.

Since you are probably eager to hear what the exact figures are, let's cut straight to the chase. The HTC One X+ offers a quad-core Tegra 3 chip that runs at up to 1.7GHz, as opposed to the 1.5GHz maximum clock speed of its predecessor's SoC. 1GB of RAM comes standard, just like on the One X. According to HTC, the upgraded silicon inside the LTE-flavored One X+ (apperently, there will be such a model) is "up to 67% faster" than the LTE One X, which sports a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor. And since higher clock speeds usually result in increased power consumption, the smartphone has been equipped with a 2,100mAh battery that can supposedly provide up to 6 more hours of talk time. The on-board storage capacity has been given a bump up to 64GB, which is plentiful no matter how you look at it.

But the list of newly added goodies doesn't end here. On the software side of things, the HTC One X+ comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-installed, which is currently the platform's newest version. Layered on top of it is the maker's custom Sense 4+ interface, with features like Self Portrait mode that enhances front-facing cam shots, grouping photos in the Gallery based on the location they were taken at, and the ability to launch the camera app with a press of the power button.

Buyers interested in getting an HTC One X+ will not have long to wait as the smartphone will launch in Europe and North Asia in October. The smartphone is also expected to land Stateside, but further announcements will clarify exactly when is that going to happen. Across North America, the device will apparently be available in two variants - HTC One X+ and HTC One VX, with the difference between them being a mystery for now.
