The One X+ will also have a 2,100 mAh battery, which gives users up to 6 hours more talk time than the previous smartphone.
It will come with the newly launched Self Portrait mode on the front camera, which detects the human face at various angles and subtle enhancements to skin and eyes.
The new smartphone will also come preloaded with Beats Audio, which "provides authentic, studio-quality sound that delivers the most immersive sound experience with an enhanced audio profile, crisper vocals and detailed high notes for your music, games, movies and videos. Making it easier to listen to music out loud, and through SenseTM 4+, the HTC OneTM X+ introduces a new Tap and Go function, which allows you to connect the phone and your music to Beats speakers'4 when you tap them. To disconnect, it is just another quick tap."
In terms of the release date, "The HTC One X+ will be available in Europe and North Asia from October and in South Asia from November 2012. North America will make a separate announcement regarding availability of the HTC One X+. The Android Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 4+ update is scheduled to begin rolling out for the HTC One S and HTC One X from October," according to the press release.
According to CNET, AT&T recently announced that the One X+ will be available to the U.S. carrier in "coming months." No pricing information was available.
It was rumored that T-Mobile will also carry the One X+ smartphone.
In terms of other HTC devices, CNET reported that the HTC One VX and the Windows Phone 8X will also be coming to AT&T.
According to Gottabemobile, the Windows Phone 8X is the "high-end 'signature' Windows Phone 8 device. We don't know what the term "signature" means, except that Microsoft gave HTC its blessing on the phone and named it. We don't know how much influence Microsoft had on the design of the Windows Phone 8X, but we know it will market the phone heavily."
"The HTC Phone 8X will be available in November and will come in the following colors - California Blue, Graphite Black, Flame Red and Limelight Yellow. So in addition to a boldly colored case, what are you getting with an HTC Phone 8X? The device will have a 4.3-inch 720p HD super LCD 2 display and will be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. It will come with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and have NFC support. The HTC Phone 8X will also have a 8 MP camera, which is standard for phones in this class but what's different is that it steps up its game with the front facing camera and gives users a 2.1 MP camera instead of the usual 1.3 MP. The HTC Phone will weigh astonishingly light at 130 grams, significantly less than the Nokia Lumia 920′s 180 grams."
It will also come with Beats Audio.
