HTC One X+ is imminent

Steps up the spec a little, including a new 1.7GHz quad-core CPU

October 1, 2012

HTC fans will be pleased to hear that a new version of the flagship One X smartphone is due to hit the UK soon.

How do we know this? Because the One X+ (or One X Plus, if you prefer) has popped up in network operator O2’s brochure (as highlighted by GSM Arena).

As the name suggests, this is a slightly souped-up version of the One X, coming with a 1.7GHz quad-core CPU (as opposed to the original’s 1.5GHz processor), an 8-megapixel camera, and 64GB of storage. The handset will also have Android Jelly Bean on board.

The smartphone will be priced at £480 sim-free, and will come with 25GB of Dropbox storage for your cloud storage needs.

This might be a tempter for those who haven’t committed to the HTC camp yet, but we suspect it will be overshadowed by the deluge of new phones which is pouring (or about to pour) forth.

We’ve had the iPhone 5 most recently, of course, and then there’s the Galaxy Note 2 (and S III for that matter), alongside the upcoming LG Optimus G, Nokia Lumia 920… there are lots of choices, and will be more soon – with HTC needing to get its skates on with its next-gen models.

HTC does have the Windows Phone 8X and 8S on the way, of course – but what the new Android model will be isn’t clear. Rumour has it that HTC may be working on a large-screen Nexus phone for Google, a smartphone boasting a 5 inch 1080p display with LTE… but we shall find out soon enough.
