HTC One X+ Specs: All you need to know

All the HTC One X+ specs and best features plus details on a UK release date and pricing for the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean smartphone

As if your smartphone buying dilemma wasn't bad enough with the iPhone 5, Nokia's Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 handset and the HTC 8X, the Taiwanese mobile maker has officially announced the One X+ as the latest member of its premium smartphone family.

Set to take over the One X as HTC's flagship Android handset, we take a snapshot look at the features that might tempt the money out of your pocket for the HTC One X+

 

 

Build and design

At 8.9mm thick, the One X+ is as slender as the One X but at 135g (with battery), a minor 5g heavier than the previous One series smartphone. Boasting the same polycarbonate body with a grip-friendly matte finish chassis, the One X+ will be available in black with the Beats logo printed on the back.

 

Screen

It's same again with the display as the OneX+ sports the same 4.7-inch super LCD 2 touch screen and despite rumours of an improved resolution display, delivers the same 720p HD quality. Gorilla Glass 2 will help keep the screen in one piece while optical lamination should reduce glare when out in the sunshine.

 

Camera

In the snapping department, there's an 8-Megapixel camera just like there is on the One X and the Windows Phone 8-powered 8X. Expect auto focus capabilities and an LED flash to be on board with the f/2.0 aperture and 28mm lens to snap great pictures in low-light conditions. HTC’s dedicated Image Chip will help deliver slick snaps and ramp up the focus speed, while 1080p HD video recording with stereo sound should take care of mobile movies. For video-chatting folk, the front-facing camera has jumped from 1.3 to a 1.6-Megapixel sensor and is capable of 720p HD video recording.

 

Battery and processor

One of the more notable upgrades comes in the power department with the battery capacity jumping from 1,800 to a 2,100 mAh and the NVIDIA Tegra quadcore processor which now runs at a higher 1.7GHZ and the 1GB of RAM should see a speedier overall performance.

 

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Building on the enhanced functionality introduced in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the HTC One X+ will join the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Google Nexus 7 and the ASUS Transformer Infinity with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean being available straight out of the box. HTC’s Sense 4 UI overlay will bring an added slickness to the Android update and is likely to offer a distinctly different experience from the Jelly Bean-packing devices we’ve seen so far.

 

Connectivity and storage

Making your calls from a microSIM, the One X+ boasts 3G, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS  and the latest Bluetooth 4.0 technology with DLNA and MHL support to stream HD content wirelessly to a TV or computer or alternatively via HDMI cable.

Unlike the One X, there’s now up to 64GB of internal storage which should be enough to take care of all pictures, movies, music and anything else you need to keep stored on your smartphone.

 

Beats Audio

Reaping the rewards of HTC’s partnership with Beats Audio, built-in amplifiers and speaker should deliver the superior sound while the 3.5mm audio jack should allow you to plug in most headphones that you can get your hands on.

 

UK Price and release date

So when can you buy the HTC One X+ in the UK? Well, the Android blower is expected to land in October with a rumoured £480 price tag but we have yet to get concrete details from HTC or potential network providers but we will keep you posted as soon as we know more.
