The smartphone is expected to arrive in the next couple of days
HTC One X+ has been confirmed to arrive in Canada since late October, but no additional details on the phone’s release date have leaked for the moment.The device has been on “Coming Soon” at TELUS for a century, but the carrier has been pretty tight lipped on the One X+’s launch date.
That’s probably because HTC has yet to decide exactly when it could manage to bring its Android flagship smartphone on Canadian shores.
Last week, TELUS somewhat confirmed it would carry the HTC 8X, but the operator backtracked several hours later and said it would offer the HTC One X+ instead.
We suspect HTC did not want to release both smartphones around the same time to avoid any competition between the two. If that’s the case, we should see the HTC Windows Phone 8X landing at TELUS in a few months.
Anyway, the folks over at MobileSyrup have just uncovered the HTC One X+’s contract price. According to a Best Buy ad, the smartphone will be available for $130/€100 with new three-year agreements.
Even though there are no details on the no-term price, we suspect the phone will be priced around $600/€470 off-contract, but this has yet to be confirmed.
HTC One X+ will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box. In addition, the smartphone will be powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM.
It will not come with microSD card slot for memory expansion, but it will offer 64GB of storage out of the box. Another strong point of the One X+ would be the 4.7-inch Super LCD2 capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution.
The One X+ will also boast an 8-megapixel rear photo snapper with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, as well as a secondary 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls.
