Taiwanese handset maker HTC has just announced the upcoming availability of the One X+ smartphone. Leaked a few months ago, HTC One X+ is the company’s new Android flagship smartphone and will be launched on the market this month.
According to HTC, the One X+ will be available in Europe and North Asia this month and in South Asia starting November.
Unfortunately, there are no details on the North American launch of the smartphone, but HTC confirmed more info would be available in the following weeks.
Although most of the HTC One X+ specs sheet leaked
several weeks ago, it’s now been confirmed the handset will be powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box.
As the name suggests, this is a slightly improved version of the popular HTC One X smartphone, so expect similar features, but better performance.

Software-wise, the One X+ comes with a newer user interface called HTC Sense 4+. In addition, the new HTC Get Started service will allow users to easily customize their processes from a desktop web browser.
On the inside, the superphone embeds a powerful 1.7 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 AP37 processor, 1GB of RAM and no less than 64GB storage.
It appears that HTC will launch a slightly different version of the One X+ in North America, which will offer LTE support. The device will be called HTC One X+ LTE and “is up to 67% faster than the HTC One X LTE
Aside from these improvements, HTC One X+
also comes with a much better 2100 mAh Li-Ion battery, which should offer users up to 50% (6 hours) more talk time, the Taiwanese company claims.
