HTC One X+ Pre-Orders Now Available

HTC One X+ pre-orders are now available at Expansys U.S.

The international version of the smartphone can now be reserved on the company's website. This model is not compatible with AT&T, so those seeking to purchase the handset at lower price need to wait a bit longer.

The expected ship date for this One X+ is Oct. 22.

The HTC One X+ will be released through AT&T sometime in the near future.

The carrier announced the device last week and also confirmed that it will also 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 other smartphone, 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 comes with better specs, and will be one of the first Windows 8 devices to be released, launching 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. AT&T should make it available in time for the holiday shopping season.
