    If you have an HTC One X you should be expecting the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update to land on your phone next month, according to recent reports. That's the same timeframe in which the Samsung Galaxy S III, its direct competitor, is set to receive its refresh bumping the OS version all the way to the latest. The information is not an official one -- and is so far not confirmed -- but is looks like a logical move. The reports also goes on saying that if you have a carrier version, as usual, your update might be late, but the entire process should be done in time for Christmas. The ...

    The HTC One X+, the phone which could close the gap between the Taiwanese manufacturer and Samsung, was nowhere to be seen at IFA even though many (including myself) wished we've seen it. Instead, HTC is holding a September 19 event but we really have no clue whether we'll see the One X+, Windows Phones, tablets or any of the aforementioned combined. There were lots of rumors about the One X follow-up, some even describing specifications, but it seems like the phone paid a visit to FCC, showing off its AT&T LTE compatible bands. According to rumors, LTE will not be the only spec bump: ...

    It's tough to be an iPhone today. As I've written before, it made a lot of sense for people to go crazy over anything that started with an "i" and came from Cupertino, but these days the story has changed. The iPhone 5 is definitely what we'd call a good product. It's far better than the iPhone 4S of last year, but it's not a breakthrough product. That said, this is the first time in the product's history, that it's no better than its competition. Surely you may argue raw specs side-by-side, but we all know this is subjective since Windows Phone 7 can make any mid-ranged phone perform like ...

    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 ...

    A little earlier today, we mentioned the news that a new update for the Samsung Galaxy S II on T-Mobile seemed to imply that Isis NFC-based mobile payments would soon be available to the smartphone's users. Now we have a few more details to add, including just when the service will go up, where it will be available, and what other phones will work. Back in February, we heard that the first-wave launch would be in Salt Lake City, UT, and Austin, TX. That was supposed to take place sometime this summer, but we didn't know quite when. It's now been confirmed that those two are still the ...

    Anyone concerned that Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC might soon evaporate in a puff of quietly brilliant smoke can rest easy; the company isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Persistent comparisons to Nokia and RIM aside, the former king of Android smartphones has a ways to go before it truly earns the overused title "beleaguered." That said, the fight does not go well for HTC. The company recently announced a revenue drop of 45% and a 23% falloff in sales guidance for the third quarter, after posting similarly dire performance numbers the quarter before. The value of its stock has also ...

    If you own or have ever used an Android tablet, you know that the same app will run differently on the tablet than it will on the phone. This is because each app has its own DPI setting that dictates the app's behavior. In a lot of cases, tablet apps are better: they often present split-screened views, more controls, and more customization potential. What if you could run tablet apps on your phone? Better yet, what if you could selectively choose which apps run in tablet mode, and which apps in phone mode? Then you could have your email be shown in a super-productive split-column view, ...

    If you look at the image above and you see an HTC One X we won't blame you! However, if you look carefully or at the side-shot below you will see that this phone is a big fat bastard! Of course it has the HTC and Beats Audio logos on the back, still, this is very much a knock off! Not only it comes with a removable backplate but included there in that gross box are two battery packs of 1,980mAh. You will also notice that this monster can accept two SIM cards. How many differences can you spot between this and the real deal? We told you about the thickness, the huge Beats logo, extra large ...

    Here’s another reason to repeat the phrase that we all know and love, TGIF! HTC has just officially released their Android 4.0.4 upgrade to the European variant of the HTC One X. I wish I could say that the upgrade works on all international models, but we still haven’t been able to prove it. It’s only reached my HTC One X at the moment, which is a German variant, but it still hasn’t reached our own Anton D. Nagy, who rocks an Asian variant for example. Now this software upgrade provides more than just a newer version of Android. HTC upgrades Sense to version 4.1, which like in the ...

    HTC seems to be preparing a hardware refresh for this year's One X Android, giving the phone a slight processor bump. We've been hearing about this model as the One X+, which will apparently go with a new Tegra 3+ chip and raise the phone's clock speed to 1.7GHz. Now some newly-leaked information has surfaced, supposedly right out of HTC itself, providing a little more data on the handset. This info confirms what we've heard about a 1.7GHz quad-core SoC, though doesn't go into any further detail on the silicon. It mentions that the phone will feature battery improvements over the first One ...

    As we discussed in the latest episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, the HTC One X with its quad-core Tegra 3 processor, was acting kind of sluggish at times, which is really something people were not expecting to experience on a processor that has four cores (and runs Ice Cream Sandwich with a slimmed down Sense 4.0). HTC however looks to be working hard to eliminate those glitches. According to reports, there's a custom ROM for the International One X, based on a purportedly leaked RUU which contains Sense 4.1 and Android 4.0.4. There's a truckload of improvements and fixes out of ...

    A 1.7GHz quad-core Android made by HTC surfaced in form of a rumor back mid last month and more recently there is talk about a certain HTC One X+ allegedly coming to T-Mobile with the same processor speed. The image above represents benchmark results on NenaMark for a certain HTC PM63100. Except for the details in the result, there's nothing to go by but these specs listed here might hint towards the One X refresh already rumored. We're looking at a 1.7GHz Tegra 3 SoC, Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and an HD display with 1280x720 resolution. These all scream high-end (and even flagship, ...

    Owners of the HTC One X (XL) on AT&T have just noticed a sizable updated headed their way, coming across prompts from their phones that a 270MB update is now available. While there's no official changelog available, users have noticed a number of improvements in this Android 4.0.4 update, though it's not entirely good news. Besides bringing the phone up to Android 4.0.4, system software 2.20 make some changes to the depiction of the phone's menu bar in certain apps, where it would appear as an ugly back space. This release cleans that up, as well as provides new contextual behavior ...

    A leaked T-Mobile roadmap from a little earlier this month mentioned an unknown HTC handset, the Era 42. That codename seemed to hint at a new G-series phone, with earlier models also taking the Era name, but a new rumor now suggests that this Era 42 will instead be a newly-refreshed HTC One X with an upgraded processor. Supposedly, the Era 42 will arrive at T-Mobile as the One X+, joining the One S already offered by the carrier. We've seen signs of this kind of One X upgrade before; a few weeks back we talked about a similar model that had appeared in some benchmark data, apparently ...

    News broke yesterday that Australian carrier Telstra is expecting HTC to prepare Jelly Bean updates for its One S and One XL models. Obviously, we're going to start seeing Android 4.1 updates coming out for plenty of recently-released handsets, but outside of Google devices, there hasn't been much news along those lines to date. Now that the subject of these JB updates for HTC's phones had been raised, the company decided to release a short statement, verifying the news and mentioning that JB is on the way for another of its models, as well. It's hardly a shocker, but along with the One XL ...
