When this story first landed on my virtual desk, I thought: ‘Isn’t the HTC One X+ already official?’ But nah, I’m getting confused with those recent rumours.
Incidentally, said rumours – the ones we heard on Friday – were right on the money. The HTC One X+ is everything we were told to expect (and maybe a tiny wee smidgeon more).
The HTC One X+ is, of course, the LTE-friendly version of the existing HTC One X, destined for EE (Everything Everywhere) in the UK.
HTC One X+ specs include a 4.7in display and 8MP rear camera. They remain unchanged from the original HTC One X.
Enhancements include a nippier quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, a beefier 2,100mAh battery, 64GB internal storage, and Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) with Sense 4+. HTC reckons the One X+ is “67% faster” than the HTC One X1 LTE. Whatever that is.
There’s also a new “Tap and Go” function allowing you to easily connect to Beats Audio speakers with – you guessed it – a simple tap.
There's no specific word on HTC One X+ price, though the aforementioned leak suggested an O2 PAYG price tag of £479.99.
Right at the bottom of the HTC One X+ press release, the Taiwanese manufacturer promises Jelly Bean for the HTC One X and One S in October, Hey, that’s this month!
