HTC One X+ poses for snapshot wearing T-Mobile brand

HTC One X+ poses for snapshot wearing T-Mobile brand
The HTC One X+ has achieved 'mythical' status. Back in July, we started to hear some rumblings about a sequel to the HTC One X featuring a dual-core 1.7GHz processor. Earlier this month, the HTC One X+ was said to have visited the FCC with a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and LTE connectivity. This version of the phone was tricked out with AT&T's bands. At the time, we wondered out loud about the 1800mAh cell that was to be a carry-over from the HTC One X. Perhaps HTC was listening to us as reports then circulated that the T-Mobile version of the HTC One X+ was being delayed and at the same time, the device was apparently getting a little expansion to make sure it could fit a larger sized battery.

Now, evleaks has tweeted a picture of the phone wearing the T-Mobile brand. There is no other information about the device except that it will be available in black. We still don't know what is on board the handset in terms of processing speed and power. Based on earlier speculation, the HTC One X+ is supposedly coming in 16GB and 32GB models with HTC Sense 4.5 running on top of Android 4.1.

As long as HTC is updating its Android flagship, why not go with 2GB of RAM instead of the 1GB expected on the phone?  If this is the model that HTC is going to be competing against the Samsung Galaxy S III with, the Taiwan based manufacturer needs to pull out all of the stops and at least grab the low hanging fruit. Besides increasing the amount of RAM on the phone, that higher capacity battery is sorely needed.

This phone will be mid-range in a matter of a month or two, so I don't think HTC is too concerned about adding extra RAM. They're already competing with the Galaxy S III with their darn good One X line, and even though the results haven't been as expected, adding an extra GB of RAM won't help their cause. Samsung has pretty much every advantage over HTC in the marketplace. Really, this looks like nothing more than what the Sensation XE was to the original Sensation. HTC already has their hands full with the HTC Nexus Incredible X 5 or whatever it's called.

you sure about being a mid-range? a quad-core device with cortex A9 architecture with decent RAM and 4.1 android OS? being in mid-range? not quite.

Compared to the incoming lineup of Snapdragon S4 Pro Quad-cores with 1080p 5-inch screens and 2GB of RAM, not to mention the Galaxy Note 2, yes this will pretty much qualify as mid-range. The only apparent change from the One X is a bump in clock speed from 1.5gHz-1.7gHz. The One X is fast approaching the mid-range, as is the SGSIII (which is fine, most flagships seem to have about a 6-month reign as kings anyways.)

You must have really high standards if you actually think its a mid-range phone. Seriously.

I said it would be mid-range in a couple months, not right this minute. But yes, I do have high standards.

You do know that the One X+ was benchmarked on Antutu and topped the Optimus G with the S4 quad and was equal with the Note 2 with the overclocked Exynos quad. In other words not a midrange phone. Especially considering that it still has top of the line build quality and the best display in the mobile world

Gotta agree with you, but I don't really get it that you reply on my comment. We're on the same page, aren't we? There's a lot to consider to categorize a device besides specs. We should also consider price point, performance and maybe also, build quality. and one x+ had it all to be one of the top.

I agree, I wouldnt update my quad core One x for this, I want htc nexus 5 that will be the best phone of the year..

Or something like it. If the rumors are true and we're getting four more Nexus devices... I don't think the One X+ will hit many radars.

Probably around the time the other Nexuses (or would it be Nexi?) are announced, so mid-October maybe?

You can say Nexus or Nexi. Both an be taken as plural, Nexuses just sounds silly.

Wish there was a way to get rid of the over rot sense UI.

Sense 4.1 is very smooth and isn't the resource hog it used to be

That's right, my Inc4 is so buttery smooth and its not even on JellyBean yet! Its too bad when technology evolves, that peoples minds don't always follow.

If it's very smooth with Sense 4.1 and ICS, what will it be with Sense 4.5 and Jelly Bean? Amazing, that's what.

Smooth sure but there's just too much stuff. Need plain simple like stock Android. Its that stock Android that makes G-Nexus beautiful.

Different folks different strokes. If all the software was the same there wouldnt be much need for all these different phones since they are mostly using the same processors.

Instead of Bumping the processor speed and releasing something like this, they should just unlock bootloader and let the hackers bump the speed of processor by utilizing some mods...............

So, the AT&T One X will have a quad-core Tegra 3 at 1.7 GHz and LTE, with 1 GB RAM and an 1800 mAh battery And the T-Mobile version will have a dual-core S4 at 1.7 GHz and HSPA+ 42, with 1 GB RAM, and a battery >1800 mAh? Or will they both have Tegra 3 at 1.7 GHz and a >1800 mAh battery? All these leaks have me confused.
