Yesterday HTC announced two new smartphones; the HTC One X+ and the HTC One VX. The HTC One X+ is the enhanced variant of the original One X, while the HTC One VX is a mid-range device with decent features. The HTC One X+ recently passed FCC, and we know some details about it. As to the HTC One VX, it’s a new handset.
The HTC One X+ will sport a 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 touchscreen, a 1.7 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, an 8MP rear camera, a 1.6MP frontal camera, a 2100mAh battery, NFC support, Beats Audio and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-loaded. This model will be 67 percent faster than the original One X thanks to new generation processor. The boosted battery will provide additional 6 hours of talk-time, and the new Tap and Go feature will allow users to connect the phone to Beats speakers. The device will work on Sense 4+, which is the retooled version of HTC’s UI that now offers a video hub for seeing the entire video content in one place, an ability to change settings on the web, and a Self-Portrait mode, which auto-enhances photos taken with the front-facing camera.
The mid-range HTC One VX will be packed with a 4.5-inch qHD Super LCD 2 display with Gorilla Glass 2, a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 8GB internal storage with microSD card slot, a 5MP camera, a VGA front facing camera, a 1810mAh battery, HTC ImageSense, Beats Audio, LTE support, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 4 UI. The Jelly Bean update is expected to hit the phone as soon as it is out.
As for availability, the handsets will be exclusively launched in the US via AT&T. The pricing details still remain unknown.
The HTC One X+ will be launched in other markets as well. It will be offered in the UK at Clove that is requiring £474 inc. VAT (that’s £395, or $630, ext. VAT). And finally, the One X+ will be launched in Canada via Telus, as AndroidCommnuity reports and which is already confirmed.
