The rumored upgrade of HTC One X turned out to be true as HTC unveils HTC One X+. They say that it’s almost exactly the original version but is equipped with a few bump in specifications. If you want to know more about this phone, then I suggest that you read the details below to see a clearer look on what we should look forward to in this smartphone.
The HTC One X+ will come with a more powerful and faster NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip and is clocked at 1.7GHz. The predecessor’s LTE variant uses Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 whilst this One X+ will retain the NVIDIA chip and it will be coupled with Qualcomm’s MDM9215 modem. Another noticeable upgrade are the increase in GPU which now stands at 520 MHz against the former 416MHz and the 2100mAh battery over the 1800mAh.
In terms of multimedia, the front-facing camera gets to 1.6-megapixel from 1.3-megapixel of the One X. The most exciting feature would be the latest android os version of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on top of HTC’s “Sense 4+ UI”. The updated HTC Sense skin will also roll out to both HTC One X and HTC One S this coming October.

The HTC One X+ price is $635 in US so that translates to roughly Php27,000 in Philippine peso. However, we could expect the price to hit the 30k mark because of the taxes. It will start shipping in South Asia this November but there is still no details regarding the availability of this device in the Philippines.
