HTC ONE X+ GETS SUPERCHARGED TEGRA AND LTE

by Will Park

When it comes to mobile devices, there’s no such thing as being too thin, too powerful or having too much battery life.

The new HTC One X+ takes the HTC One X to the next level, with a larger battery and higher-performance Tegra 3 processor packed into the same 8.9mm thin body. And there’s also a version for LTE fans as well.

It boasts a supercharged version of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, which features the high-performance, 4-PLUS-1 quad-core architecture and unique 5th battery-saver core. On the Android side of the equation, the HTC One X+ will ship with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and debuts HTC’s new Sense 4+ skin. The AT&T HTC One X+ will be the first Tegra 3 LTE smartphone for the US.

So how does the HTC One X+ one-up the competition? It’s all about the internals.

The new Tegra 3 silicon cranks up the dial marked “performance” with a 1.7 GHz CPU and faster graphics. Onboard storage gets bumped up to 64GB and battery capacity increases to 2100 mAh. And both the 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera make use of the dedicated HTC ImageChip for crisp, accurate photos.

All this translates into an HTC One X+ that is 67% faster than the HTC One X LTE, while giving up to 50% (6 hours) more talk time. In the hand, you’ll notice faster multitasking, faster webpage load times and a snappier user experience that lasts as long as your workday. But don’t worry, the One X+ will deliver the same great visual experience and console- quality gaming through optimized TegraZone games.

We’ll talk more about the HTC One X+ in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
