It is going to be monster of a phone. HTC One X Plus is all set to come with quad core chip, Android Jelly Bean
The rumored HTC One X+ makes buzz in mobile market. The device is reportedly on way to the U.K. carrier O2. It is hoped that One X+ will have better processor power than the international version One X and the U.S. version One XL. Perhaps, more internal storage and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean may be other great features of the new HTC One X+. Here we make a look at the key rumored features of the phone from the Taiwanese tech maker.
Quad Core CPU: As per rumors, One X+ is to outfit a beefed-up 1.7GHz quad core Tegra 3+ AP37 processor. It is a significant upgrade from the 1.5GHz quad core processor in One X and 1.5GHz dual core offering in One XL, which is 4G-enabled. That is, the new One X+ handset will do great in loading web pages, video & music streaming, camera functioning and more.
More Internal Storage: As part of making its flagship Android phone rather competitive to Samsung’s Galaxy S3 and Apple’s iPhone 5, HTC may integrate better storage in One X+. Rumor mills think that there will be a 64GB variant for the handset, which will further promise 25GB of free Dropbox storage.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean: The current One X variants run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. There is a talk that the One X and XL are about to get the next Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. But, the new One X+ is reportedly going to preload Jelly Bean. That is, it is going to be the first handset from HTC to feature the latest Android update out of the box.
No More Ground Breaking Features
Well, you are not going to get many more revolutionary features on the new HTC One X+. There is less chance that HTC will modify the entire phone. “If you are looking for something more ground breaking from the One X+ then you may be disappointed, as there doesn’t seem to be anything else new or different between this and the original One X,” says TechRadar. When it comes to display, camera, connectivity and others, the new One X+ may almost replicate its original edition.
The One X sports a large 4.7-inch Super IPS LCD2 display with a good resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels at 312ppi. It has Gorilla Glass protection against scratches and it touts the company’s latest Android interface Sense UI. The handset sports an 8MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash, 1080p video recording and more and a 1.3MP front camera for video calls. There are Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPRS, EDGE and more.
What Others Say?
“Rumored to be a faster, more robust version of the company’s flagship Android handset, the details paint a pretty picture. Powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and running HTC’s Sense 4.5 UI, the One X+ is expected to feature a quad-core Tegra 3+ AP37 processor running at 1.6GHz. As one of the first models on the market to offer both 4G LTE and a quad-core chipset, the One X+ will be one of this fall’s most powerful devices,” says CNET.
Release Date and Price
We have no info on the exact release date of HTC One X+. As per rumors, it is going to hit stores sooner on O2 in the U.S. The price may go £479.99 (around $780) and so it will be cheaper than the 64GB iPhone 5. In the U.S., T-Mobile and AT&T may offer the device quite sooner. Of course, it will be available for small prices with contract from the carriers.
