Keeps physical design, changes internals

HTC has officially announced its follow-up to its well-received One X. Using the same physical design as its predecessor, the One X+ contains a number of improvements to its internals. The biggest change is the inclusion of a 1.7GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, matching details rumored earlier this month.

Running on Android 4.1 with HTC Sense 4+ overlaid, the smartphone has 1GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The display is now a 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 screen protected with Gorilla Glass 2, while the combination of the NVIDIA-supplied processor and a 2100mAh battery is claimed to increase talk time by up to 50 percent. NFC with support for Tap and Go, 802.11n Wi-Fi, DLNA, and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity are all included, as is an 8-megapixel camera with ImageSense processor and an aperture of F2.0.

Results from the purchase of Dashwire by the manufacturer last year also shows up in this release, with new customers being able to go through the setup process through a web browser on a computer instead of through the phones. Performing the initial personalization using a computer instead of dealing with the phone menus may end up winning the company more customers, if only for a simpler setup process.

The One X+ is confirmed for release in Europe and North Asia later this month, and will appear in South Asia next month. A US release will be detailed in a later announcement, and previous rumors suggesting it will appear on T-Mobile.
