HTC One X+ Breaks Cover, 1.7GHz Quad-Core, Android 4.1 Jellybean

HTC One X+ Breaks Cover, 1.7GHz Quad-Core, Android 4.1 Jellybean

It's nigh impossible to stay one step ahead in the smartphone race, because just as soon as you pick up a handset, a successor inevitably pokes its head into view. That's the case for HTC One X owners, who should probably stop reading right now. For everyone else, be advised that HTC's faster clocked One X+ isn't too far off in the distance.

The upcoming device was featured in a recent brochure for O2, which is a wireless carrier in the U.K. According to the ad, the One X+ ups the ante with a 1.7GHz quad-core CPU (the processor in the One X is clocked at 1.5GHz) and twice the amount of built-in storage (64GB versus 32GB). It will also come with an additional 25GB of DropBox storage in the cloud, just like the One X.

The HTC One X+ looks like the original One X (shown above), but is clocked faster and has more internal storage.

HTC is loading the device with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean right from the get-go, so new buyers will have the latest and greatest version of Google's open source OS the moment they unbox their device. No word on when it will ship, other than "soon," according to the brochure.

Android's biggest problem is that vendors are still pushing 2.x devices, so this should be a pretty great upgrade for most.

True. Problem is Google has not or does not want to unify the OS updating process. While I understand their is a huge issue with this they haven't stepped forward and I love android. Every one I haven owned as always been rooted to I can get the new update faster and overall faster speed and get rid of the bloatware carriers put on this. 

I love all things Google but im sure they didn't see the growth of what android is now. Either way they half way dropped the ball on this but hopefully one day they will atleast have some way to make sure manufactures and carriers alike have to push out updates to the OS within a certain amount of time for the consumers.

«That's the case for HTC One X owners, who should probably stop reading right now.» But, Paul, what do you think will happen if they do continue reading ? Will there be a wailing and a gnashing of teeth ? As an owner of desktops and laptops, I enjoy reading about new developments in those fields (which, of course, is why I'm a fan of HotHardware), and don't mind at all that my boxes aren't the very latest ; while I do look forward to my next build with more modern components, so long as my current machines can do their job, I'm happy in the best of all possible worlds. Are smart-phone owners a different order of being, who absolutely must have the latest if their psychological health is not be risked (the very image of an Apple fanboi), even if their present phones meet their needs ?...
