As per the earlier rumors, HTC is indeed making a new version of its One X flagship model. The HTC One X+ adds a faster CPU thanks to a Nvidia Tegra 3 AP37 CPU clocking at 1.7GHz (versus the Tegra 3 clocking at 1.5GHz), a bigger 2100mAh battery (versus 1800mAh), more storage at 64GB (versus 32GB), and an improved front-facing camera. Like the Windows Phone 8x, the One X+ has an amplifier external speaker, which is a great addition for those that want to play music without needing a speaker dock. It will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, along with a new version of HTC Sense called Sense 4+, which features a few small tweaks, most notably to the gallery application.
The One X+ will be available in Europe and Asia this month, with a forthcoming announcement for US availability. It’ll be offered in a matte black option only, and features red accents around the camera lens and on the capacitive buttons on the front.
