We’ve been hearing about the HTC One X+ so often that we feel like we own it already. After numerous leaks in benchmarks, pictures, specs and all that, plus a few pics, today we get a brochure from O2 UK showing the handset. This supposed update of the HTC One X is only expected to bring a better CPU and Android Jelly Bean preinstalled.
HTC One X+ features a 1.7 GHz Tegra 3 processor, 64 GB of built in memory and keeps the 8 megapixel camera. It also gets Android 4.1 Jelly Bean preinstalled, and an additional 25 GB of DropBox storage is available. The price tag shown here is 479.99 quid on a pay as you go plan when it comes to O2. Frankly speaking, to me this update feels as useless as the one of the HTC Sensation to HTC Sensation XE. What do you get extra? Some red rings on the case, Beats Audio and headphones and some minor tweaks of the device.
Did it sell well? Nope, not at all and that’s proved by the fact it disappeared quickly from carriers and retailers, just like the HTC One XL. HTC has to be careful this time, since launching the HTC One X+ too soon and the rumored HTC phablet would cannibalize both their sales.
