HTC One X+ Release Date Confirmed for This Month

The HTC One X+ release date is set for this month in select countries located in Europe and North Asia.

HTC's latest flagship smartphone was unveiled earlier today and functions as a beefed up version of its predecessor, the original One X.

The new version 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.

However, aside from the slimming down of color selection, nothing else has really changed on the outside of the One X+. Most updates have been made on the inside of the device.

The software features on the One X+ that includes Android 4.1, JellyBean and Sense 4+ will also be coming to the HTC One X and One S sometime later this month.

The One X+ is scheduled to hit Europe and North Asia sometime this month with a South Asia launch following in November. North America will receive the device after a separate unveiling, according to HTC.

The Android 4.1, JellyBean update for North American 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.
