We’ve talked a few times before about HTC’s One X+, which has been sounding like a relatively minor hardware refresh of the original One X, getting a slightly faster processor and supposedly improving battery life. Some newly-leaked specs give us a better understanding of what to expect, but raise some new questions about those power improvements.
Supposedly, the One X+ will run a quad-core Tegra 3+ AP37 SoC at 1.6GHz, with a speed bump up to 1.7GHz when using just a single core. Like the first One X, it would arrive with 32GB flash memory and a gigabyte of RAM.
What’s interesting are the phone’s rumored dimensions. Its length and width should stay the same, but these specs have the handset’s thickness growing from 8.9 millimeters to 9.3 millimeters. At first, you might think that a larger battery would explain the change, as well as make sense with those earlier rumors about power, but the source behind this info claims that the phone will have the very same 1800mAh battery as the first One X. That leaves us scratching our heads a little bit as to why HTC would make the phone thicker.
The One X+ would reportedly arrive running Jelly Bean with Sense 4.5 on top.
