Today AT&T announced they would be the exclusive US carriers of the HTC One X+ and HTC One VX, crushing the hopes of T-Mobile customers who were waiting for the device. We spotted the HTC One X+ with T-Mobile branding, but it appears it was cancelled after AT&T made a deal to confine it to their network.
As expected, the HTC One X+ features Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Sense 4+, a faster 1.7 GHz Tegra 3 NVIDIA quad-core processor, 4.7-inch 720p HD screen, increased 64 GB of internal storage, 8 megapixel rear-facing HD camera, and larger 2100 mAh battery. HTC claims the HTC One X+ is up to 67% faster and has up to 50% more talktime than the original One X.
“We are taking the HTC One™ X to a new level with the introduction of the new HTC One X+,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. “Our customers will have super-fast browsing, an even better camera and more immersive entertainment with Beats Audio.”
HTC said the One X+ will also be coming to other countries, including Europe and North Asia from October and South Asia from November 2012.
Also announced was the HTC One VX, an affordable Android phone with a premium experience. The One VX features Android 4.0 (upgrade to Android 4.1 coming soon), HTC Sense 4, 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 (MSM8930), 4.5-inch qHD super LCD2 display (960×540), 8 GB internal storage, 5 megapixel camera, 1810 mAh battery, and support for AT&T’s LTE.
No pricing or availability was announced for either device, but we expect those details will be coming soon.
