We’ve seen the HTC One X+ leaking as specs, benchmarks, press shots, brochure pics and now we’ve got one of the first decent hands on pics out there. This is supposed to be an evolved version of the HTC One X, with an improved CPU and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean preinstalled. The first HTC One X was a fine phone, so do we really need this slight improvement?


The Taiwanese company we know as HTC is seriously preparing to launch this time, although no dates or prices have been disclosed. It’s true that an O2 UK leak showed a price of around 600 euros for the newcomer, but can we take that for granted? The newcomer brings a Tegra 3+ quad core CPU at 1.7 GHz, an upgrade from the original model, a 1800 mAh battery, 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera, Beats Audio technology and 32GB of storage. Preinstalled Jelly Bean can also be considered a selling point, I guess…

I’m pretty sure that by the middle of October we’ll see this product launched and I hope it won’t suffer the fate of the HTC Sensation XE, also a minor upgrade of a decent product, the HTC Sensation. That one only came with a bunch of headphones and minor design changes and it didn’t sell well, at all. Is the market ready for such small upgrades?
