HTC One X+ NenaMark2 score confirms Tegra 3+ chip, HD display and Android 4.1.1


Rumors and speculation are nice, but we love it when we have real evidence to back up our stories. The latest bit of news regarding the fabled HTC One X+ comes to us via NenaMark2 benchmark results, revealing that the phone is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 chip clocked at 1.7GHz and features a 1280 x 720 HD display. The icing on the cake is that HTC PM63100 is running Android 4.1.1 rather than the 4.0.3 build that’s currently used on the HTC One X.

While there are no new details regarding the handset’s debut on T-Mobile, LandOfDroid claims that the phone is also known as the HTC Evitaire and will be making its way to AT&T.

Now that we have real evidence that the HTC One X+ is not just a figment of our imagination, what are your thoughts on its confirmed specs? Will the HTC One X+ be the must-have Android device of the fall or would you rather hold out for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 2?

    Only worth it if it has stock android and no HTC Sense nonsense

    • dreamdoggy22

      That won’t happen. I’m on your side, but it won’t happen.

    • dVyper


      • dreamdoggy22

        You don’t really believe they will release it without Sense….do you? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I would love to see that, but really…..

        • Jaydude

          I know it is not going to happen, but they should reduce it to something like what Asus did in the transformers. One battery control widget and some pre-loaded apps. That is it

          • droiddavi

            If thins ends up on t mobile it could very well be the g3.

    • ayocuz

      I know everyone isn’t into rooting their phone but there’s cyanogen which is really better than stock, so I buy my phones based on specs but really sense is better than touch wiz

      • Kevin

        Exactly. How many people that hang out at an Android site is NOT rooting their phone? The UI is completely irrelevant. Totally, in terms of buying one or not.

        • sansenoy

          Sense is not the UI, but the actual OPERATING SYSTEM on HTC phones, android 4 is just the code they are based on… And that makes it pretty relevant since the most stable systems out there are highly tuned Sense ROMs… AOKP and CM always seem to be in some early development stage, until HTC drops another RUU, that is…

          • obscuro

            No, Sense is not the operating system. Sense is a UI overlay, plus HTC ships some third-party apps with Sense, you can either view them as enhancers/bloatware depending on your POV. But you can freeze almost all parts of Sense (the launcher and other services) using Titanium, and still run the phone. There is still some UI theming leftover, but it’s not *that* different from stock ICS.

            Most of your phone’s experience is actually determined by which launcher, lock widget and app drawer you use.

          • sansenoy


            Sense is far more than an UI overlay, I’m afraid. You can’t really “freeze” all of it, and your “phone experience” is way more determined by the stuff deep under the hood, not some surface-level framework… My HOX experience is better defined by its crappy battery life and overheating issues than its launcher, lock widget and app drawer; all standard Sense features so far…

    • Chris Lewis

      I have come to accept that if you want stock android you must be willing to root your phone and flash it yourself, or just buy a nexus device!

  • odin

    +100000000000 sense suxxx ass

  • dillybar

    You guys are in the minority. Most people love Sense. Good luck believing HTC will release a Senseless device.

    • Bob Saget

      Sense isn’t terrible but it is rather clunky. If you’ve used an aosp rom you would know why people appreciate stock android’s simplistic beauty.

      Also it would not be unprecedented for HTC to release a stock android device, especially on tmo. G1, G2 anyone?

      • Jaydude

        Thank you! We are on the same page. Stock android is just cleaner.

      • bobbu

        Correction. Sense WAS clunky. It is way cleaner now and I actually prefer it over stock android

        • Burnd

          Exactly, 9/10 people hating Sense don’t have a clue about Sense 4.0

      • andrew

        I feel this would have to have a keyboard to be a G3…

    • Jaydude

      Do you prefer it over stock android?… Because I certainly don’t. HTC Sense is my second choice, Touchwiz just never got me, but ever since I first laid hands on a Nexus S, I promised to myself to never go outside stock android.

    • Homncruse

      Heh heh… senseless.

    • Alexander drzfr3shboialex

      I agree. I personally love sense. Not having sense won’t make that much of a difference when it comes to updating hence the g2. To me sense has the most beautiful widgets, UI, and awesome functionality when it comes to android.

  • MoSDeeb

    Hopefully the rumored September release date is accurate.

    • becky

      I rather wait for the new iPhone 5….

      • Alexander drzfr3shboialex

        IPhone 5? Sure its not the iPhone 4ss?

  • jarias14

    I agree with you, MoSDeeb. Hope the date is accurate.

    A Sense-less phone would be very cool. And removable battery even cooler..

    The phone on the picture looks awesome by the way.

    • Nick Gray

      It’s just a picture we made of the AT&T One X with the Android 4.1 lock screen superimposed on it.

  • LukeT32

    Any luck it is coming to VZW.

    • dreamdoggy22

      Since I’m on VZW, and I want the phone, it won’t be available. lol

    • Alexander drzfr3shboialex

      Honestly it looks like Verizon only gets many high( emphasis on many) end phones from Motorola, she no one else does with the exception of ATT.

      • Matt

        Well if you exclude the only other carrier that does get a bunch of motorola phones then of course your point will be right about verizon.

  • erikiksaz

    Two things to say:

    1) Sense is less ugly compared to touchwiz. I’d take it over that yellow/orange/green pastel crap any day.

    2) If this thing has a battery smaller than the GS3, HTC might as well not release the damn thing.

    • Adryan maldonado

      I agree with you 100% about the battery. Secondly im curious to as how badly jelly bean will be ruined by a new sense version or a new touchwiz. I dont like either but both have their minuses and pluses. So i will wait and see. Even i like touch wiz less im leaning towards the galaxy note 2 personally

      • Nick Gray

        Jelly Bean doesn’t have any real visual changes from Ice Cream Sandwich which would make HTC change their Sense 4.0 UI.

  • alexanderharri3

    Maybe this actually has a chance to be on Verizon…….6 months after release as DROID Incredible 5 LTE 4G+


  • Jaydude

    Oh and if you manufacturers are reading this, please from now on, no batteries under 2000
    mAh. SPECIALLY if they are not removable

  • cwjones4

    what happened to HTC decreasing the number of devices they are were going to release? seems like a marginal upgrade to the one X. don’t get me wrong though, it’s exciting to see a phone being released with jellybean this soon, hopefully that means it will be sent out soon!

  • Nathan D.

    Well it really nice to see it is real, now the question is when will it be release (September hopefully) and will it really be senseless (most likely not).

  • BigCiX

    HTC realized the screwed up when they stripped the removable battery and SD slot from the original One X. So to make it up they made the same device with a more slightly better processor and 4.1.

    • Nick Gray

      HTC did pretty much the same thing last year with the HTC Sensation and HTC Amaze. Most the internal specs were the same, but the Amaze has a slightly better camera.

  • Homncruse

    It’d be nice to see an HTC powerhouse on T-Mobile again.

    • WlfHart

      Hopefully T-Mobile will start picking up it’s Android powerhouse line now instead of waiting until the successor to a phone is almost out before carrying the original. (Galaxy Note)

  • Dirge

    So much for quality over quantity. The One X hasn’t even been out for 4 months, and there’s already a better version on the way.

    That’s not to say other manufacturers have been better.

  • pekosROB

    OK, I know HTC said they would focus on the high end market and limit the number of their releases, but is it just me or does it seem odd that they’re doing this plus model so soon after the One X release? Is it just me or does this somewhat go against what HTC said they would do?

    I know it’s a high end device, but releasing something so soon after a relatively new product seems like over kill. And yes, I know that in the world of cell phones yours is outdated soon after release date. I’m just saying that HTC said they wanted to change the way they release phones, the only difference I see is that it’s a faster upgraded version and not some cheap crap. Then again, Motorola has been kinda doing the same thing with the Droid RAZR and now the RAZR MAXX and soon the HD.

    • Nick Gray

      HTC said that they were going to focus on fewer devices, but why wait around for next year if sales of their current high-end One series are being devastated by the SGSIII. Waiting around until 2013 isn’t going to help them any.

      • BigCiX

        HTC is fault for that. They should of had made the One X for all four carriers (except the EVO LTE) and stick a removable batt & SD card.

      • pekosROB

        But do they really have to go with the plus moniker? I suppose if they want to keep with this “One” series line up. They should have released it on all major carriers and they might have had more sales from Verizon customers prior to the release of the SGS3.

        I suppose everyone is a winner when we have new phones coming out like this, except for the people who bought the One X.

  • paul

    I do love HTc phone BUT untill the make a phone that does not have tinny over compressed video recording I will not get another htc

  • Yousef

    If it’s true that it’s running a completely stock version of android, and 4.1.1 at that, then there is actually a possibility that this may be the next nexus. I doubt it will have 4.1.1 on release if it is the next nexus, more likely 4.2/5.0, but HTC would be testing it now with 4.1.1 to make sure everything goes without fail.

  • Michael Ps weed buddy…..

    new iphone will MAUL this htcrap nOne!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • jamal adam

    I don’t think most people mind Sense but it would be much appreciated if they cut back on the UI and all the unnecessary graphics and other shenanigans that are hampering on the device’s ability to perform at its maximum capacity.

  • izzo

    slow down htc, what happened to less is more? , haven’t you learned your lesson the one just got released

  • inviolable

    I just can’t stand the handicapped multitasking in Sense 4. I’m a big fan of HTC, but I feel like they spit in everyone’s face when they said Sense 4 is working as intended, when they were pressed about the memory management. The damn thing is more aggressive than stage 4 cancer. I can’t even go back to the homescreen without it loading for 10+ seconds. The multitasking as it stands, doesn’t multi anything. Even when it does quick switch, it still reloads. Its atrocious. If this new device doesn’t use Sense, it would be a godsend, but I’m gonna have to root my One S regardless. Its completely unacceptable.

    • No offense

      No offense, really, but that’s the price of being “Fan boy” (not calling you a sheep, but just saying that you have favor towards a brand)

      If you only had held off and read some reviews on the device before you pulled the trigger, you would’ve been saved, but I guess the favoritism kicked in before having rational decision based on the performance. It’s a painful lesson and you will be sore for a while I presume. Before it gets too late, I would advise you to sell your One S and get Galaxy Nexus from Play Store. You know it is a good deal.

  • Alexander drzfr3shboialex

    I think I’m reason it wrong, I thought it said HTC Nexus+.

  • thaghost

    For the Tmobile version:

    Educated guess based on history: This phone will be released be 7-14 days before the iphone is released to try to stop people from leaving.

    Educated guess based on history: It won’t work.

    Sincere Hope: I hope they don’t rush it to the market due to what i said above and it ends up buggy, like the G2x

  • D. Gray

    Funny nice phone bt feature wise its still not on par with the S3. We seem to forget all the features the S3 offers. No thanks HTC

  • Terry H

    I’ll be happy if Google use the Tegra 3+ or the S4 quad core with Adreno 320 on the next Nexus phone. But i dont know with the tegra Nexus 7 I smell other Tegra Nexus on the way…

  • chen

    Will this device or other future ones bring back removable battery and SD slot?
    I think stripping both of them is the most ridiculous thing that htc did on the one series devices.

  • Stuart Halliday

    Sounds nice but I’d like a phone that lasts at least 6 hours. HTC aren’t known for putting decent batteries in their phones sadly…

  • Nate B.

    I thought HTC was going to settle for less this year. This device just has a faster clock speed. Okay it has 4.1.1. as well. That’s nice but it’s not much more then the One X. I really don’t like these plus devices. Make the same damn device for every carrier the first time around and make it nice enough that it can hold it’s on through the entire year. Any other device needs to be in a different category all together, like a tablet or something. You can name it something different if you want, but at the end of the day its the same device. For example: EVO LTE is basically the same as the One X. You can call it whatever and change the design form factor, but it’s the same device. a few months later we will make it faster but keep everything else the same…smh. We might toss in the latest version of Android even though we will update the earlier devices as well. Makes no sense. No pun intended. I love Android but things like this is why it’s hard to keep together as an ecosystem. I mean I’m more of a Nexus guy so I wouldn’t worry really, but Android is the mascot and idk…man I just feel like Android is all over the place sometimes. At the end of the day I do welcome new tech..even though this isn’t new really.

  • Rahul

    I am still not buying this without a microSD slot. Add the microSD slot and I will buy this without giving a second though.

    • Arwin

      Hmmph. HTC One X look very elegant. It’s simplistic exterior just makes me want to buy the phone :-) Like you, i pulled back because it’s missing an expandable transflash storage and unremovable battery. It’s going to be hard to troubleshoot the phone if it has problems..
      HTC needs to revise this for their upcoming HTC One X+
      A die-shrinked Tegra 3+ at 28nm would overcome it’s overheat issues.

  • PFast

    I can’t wait to see HTC Android on Nvidia’s Tegra 4 next year. That’s probably the right time for a quad core that doesn’t actually overheats on full load lol

  • Nick Gray

    Sometimes I enjoy making the graphics more than I actually do writing the posts. In this case, the story is a lot more exciting than the image. If/when the HTC One X+ comes to T-Mobile, I’ll be handing off my HTC One S to my wife so I can get this new device.
