HTC One X front

Following a number of leaks over the past few weeks, HTC has finally made the One X+ official this morning. In many ways, the handset is a lot like its predecessor; it sports the same polycarbonate unibody, the same 4.7-inch Super LCD display, and offers the same 1GB of RAM. But in other ways, the One X+ is a whole new smartphone.

Arguably its biggest upgrade — at least in terms of hardware — is a new 1.7GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, which makes the One X+ “up to 67% faster” the the One X LTE, according to HTC. There is no microSD card slot in the new handset, but it does come with 64GB of internal storage as standard, plus 25GB of Dropbox storage absolutely free — so you should have plenty of space to store just about everything you’d like to pack into your smartphone.

The One X plus features an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera capable of shooting 1080p HD video — just like the original One X — plus an improved 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera that shoots 720p HD video. The battery has also been improved by a non-replaceable 2,100 mAh cell, which promises 50% more talk time.

Another great feature of the One X+ is its software: It comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-installed, with HTC’s new Sense 4+ user interface laid over the top. As you’d expect, this update brings a number of improvements to the device, including new imaging and movie hubs, improvements to the camera app, and more.

The HTC One X+ with 3G connectivity will be making its way to Europe and North Asia in mid-October, then South Asia in November. And for those of you in the United States, HTC has said that it will be making a separate announcement regarding a One X+ with LTE connectivity later.
