HTC Era 42 rumor morphs into the HTC One X+, heading to T-Mobile this fall


It’s been a few months since Taylor posted a rumor about the Tegra 3 powered  HTC One X heading to T-Mobile. Since then, there’s been nothing but silence, but a new report out of TmoNews may finally prove that HTC and T-Mobile are prepping to launch the device later this fall.

Based on what we can gather, the HTC Era 42 device reference which showed up in a leaked T-Mobile inventory system is actually a device which will launch as the HTC One X+. Specs and software are still a mystery at this point, but we have a feeling the plus may be a lot more than a differentiator to distinguish T-Mobile’s HTC One X from AT&T’s variant.

According to the original T-Mobile HTC One X rumor, the handset will launch with stock Android rather than HTC’s Sense UI. Another plausible reason for the plus is that the HTC One X+ could be the first device to be powered by Qualcomm’s new quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor or even the 1.7 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3+ . Unfortunately, we do not have any evidence to back that up, but we do know that Qualcomm and NVIDIA are expecting commercial devices powered by their new chips to hit the market later this year.

What are your thoughts on the new HTC Era 42/HTC One X+ news? What do you think the plus stands for?
