HTC One X+ made official, rumour mill was spot on

HTC One X+ made official, rumour mill was spot onWhen 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!

Now if they could develop "tap and go" that destroys beat headphones with a gentle tap that would be a development worth praising...

"67% faster" LOL...

LOL thats actually worse than some of the claims apple makes.

200mhz in real life performance makes barely any difference.

Think you are comparing it to the one X not the One Xl Lte though..
That said I don't think the difference will be anywhere near that.

The dual core snapdragon S4 in the XL is as powerful - if not more powerful than the fail which is tegra 3 anyway (CPU wise).. so not sure what you mean.

If you mean GPU wise, HTC's claim may have a bit of merit, as the adreno 225 isn't brilliant.
