HTC One X+ Confirmed for Release on AT&T

The HTC One X+ will be released through AT&T.

The carrier announced the device yesterday and also confirmed that it will launch two other HTC smartphones: the HTC One VX and HTC Windows Phone 8X.

The HTC One X+ comes equipped with a 1.7GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 2,100mAh battery with six hours more talk time, 64GB of storage, and Android 4.1, JellyBean with HTC's custom Sense 4+.

HTC stated that this new version of the One X is 67 percent faster than the original with LTE. It will also only come in black, eliminating the white and charcoal gray colors that the One X came in.

The HTC One VX features lower end specs such as a 4.5-inch display, and a 5-megapixel rear camera. It also runs Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.

The HTC Windows Phone 8X will be one of the first Windows 8 devices to be released and should launch sometime next month. The handset features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of internal storage, an 8-megapixel camera, and a 4.5-inch display.

The prices and exact release dates for these handsets were not announced, but all three should arrive before 2013.

The One X+ is scheduled to hit Europe and North Asia sometime this month with a South Asia launch following in November.

The Android 4.1, JellyBean update for North American HTC One X users is expected to arrive sometime before Christmas. The international update will begin rolling out sometime before the end of this month.

The non-branded HTC One X will be the first model to receive the update, according to various sources.

The latest build of Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich is also now being rolled out to HTC One S users throughout the continent of Europe in countries including the Netherlands and Germany.
