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.

Bigger battery, Jelly Bean on board, and updated processor that scores over 7,000 on Quadrant and over 14,000 on Antutu (with the unfinished model). Love it. I wish Sense was closer to stock, but I guess that's for another day. Favorite feature; red buttons. RED BUTTONS.

I am still thinking what the One X+ LTE version will feature. My best guess is that they are using the MSM8960T (Dual Core Krait with Adreno 320) which should make it a good bit faster. The Quad Core Krait with Adreno 320 should be much more than 67% faster than the LTE One X so I guess that isn't being used.

I thought that they were still going to use the Tegra 3 processor in the LTE version, because this is a new variant of Tegra 3 that supports LTE? Because there were reports of the One X+ having AT&T LTE bands but still sporting the Tegra. And taking a look at the benchmarks, this new OC'd Tegra 3 matches the 67% increase in speed over the S4. I haven't done the math completely, but it just looks like it.

Just read Anandtech. They are still using Tegra 3. Old International One X has 1.5 GHz Quad Core A9 + 416 MHz Geforce ULP New LTE One X+ has 1.7 GHz Quad Core A9 + 520 MHz Geforce ULP + Qualcomm 28 nm LTE Modem

No, the quad core krait would make it 50-60% faster. The dual core version would be probably 30-40% faster at same clocks from the GPU bump. It also all depends on the tests used. If its a GPU test, either version of the krait pro will be very similar. If its a CPU test, only the krait pro quad would show improvement. if its an over all test, obviously they both would. Gonna have to wait n find out

Nope. Considering everything. Quad Core Krait will make it about 90% faster (assuming applications utilize all 4 cores which is unlikely to happen anytime soon). But it doesn't matter since it is using Tegra 3. So, the LG Optimus G get's to retain the title of the fastest phone as of now. http://www.anandtech.com/show/6348/htc-makes-the-global-one-x-official-17-ghz-ap37-tegra-3-64-gb-of-storage

Really good BUT!........could have been a whole lot better with a 2300-2500 mAH battery, 2 gb ram AND quadcore S4 pro clocked at 1.5 ghz........I dont see how they just keep on failing to complete these devices...........its kinda disturbing but nonetheless a really good choice............I still think the Evo 4g lte with jelly bean and the latest version of sense will do just as good on bench marks tho

You mean the menu button bar? I thought they fixed that in Sense 4.1. I could be wrong, but I'm sure that was one of the improvements.

In sense 4.1 you can change the button at the right of the home button to be multitask button or menu button . But i will keep it as multitask button because i like it that way :)

Silly, just pretend it's an iPhone and things are supposed to be that way.

It was fixed. It your choice to have it or not. I'm glad cos I kept bumping the large bar in some games. Big up to HTC.

Anyone else think that the new naming scheme is more confusing than the old?

1gb ram is more than enough! More than 1gb RAM is just gimmicky...

True why not 2gb Ram. How pathetic of them.

26. wendygarett unregistered

I have a question, what's advantage and disadvantage of having 2gb of ram...

Android itself uses around 200 mb + manufacturer skin and multitasking is anyway controlled automatically in the latest versions: when you require memory to launch an app and it's full, the system kills the oldest apps. 2 gb may be useful for the gs3 to handle the pop up video feature, same for the note 2. For the rest sounds like gimmick.

2 GB is useful in the SIII because Touchwiz is heavier than a Transformer carrying an opera tenor. My Note routinely uses up 500 mb of RAM just in background processes. The available RAM listed is about 760 megs which leaves only 260 for main programs. It's okay for one program but multitasking slows the phone down.

Yep!! It's a KilLeR design !

RAM still comes in 1 GB...i just hope with the boost up speed will compromise the screen refresh coming from multi-tasking event. I hate the screen refresh at times when it happens.

Only if it had 2GB of RAM and an improved version of Sense, with the features of TouchWiz and the Beauty of SenseUI.
