HTC Confirms Jelly Bean Update To Arrive On Unlocked One X Smartphones In October, Carrier-Branded Models By Christmas


Those of you lucky individuals who own the HTC One X smartphone can now have something to look forward to. While you still may not know of Jelly Bean’s exact arrival, at least HTC is giving the owners an idea of when the update is due to arrive. The manufacturer has confirmed the update will be pushed to the unlocked Tegra 3 models by October, followed by the carrier-branded models (i.e. the One XL or Snapdragon-powered One X models) receiving the update hopefully by roughly Christmas if all goes well.

The HTC Jelly Bean news doesn’t stop there either. You remember how we told you about that supercharged HTC One X+ that’s on the way? Well that device along with the special One XL arriving on EE’s brand-spankin’ new 4G LTE network will come with Jelly Bean shipped out of the box. And before you ask— there’s no news of when One S owners will get Jelly Bean, but if or when we hear news, we’ll be sure to share it with you.

HTC’s trade up program offers up to $300 for trading in your old phone towards a new HTC device

To help persuade customers into purchasing one of their new devices, HTC has created a Trade Up program that offers in upwards of $300 by trading in your old Android device for a new HTC one. While it’s a cool idea in theory, these types of programs are always a landslide win for the company. Not only do you buy a new device from them, but you’re basically selling them yours for a fraction of what it’s really worth.

For example, my mint condition GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus will only fetch $170 through this trade in program where I can easily get almost twice that. Either way, I’m sure this will appeal to some.

HTC tweets photo of a device as a teaser for tomorrow’s event

Tomorrow, HTC will be holding an event to launch a new device(s) and we’ve all been eagerly anticipating what it may be. Today HTC took it upon their Twitter account and posted a teaser photo about the event. My first guess is a Windows 8 device, perhaps a Windows version of the HTC One X?

While I don’t expect it to be an Android device, there are several contenders such as the rumored 5″ HTC DIx device and a new tablet that they’ve been working on.

Either way, the event should be great and I have no doubts HTC will unveil yet another high spec’d device. We’ll be sure to cover tomorrow’s event and bring you up to date news.

HTC’s rumored 5-inch One X 5 revealed in leaked press shots

We previously saw HTC’s elusive 5-inch Galaxy Note II competitor earlier this month in a set of leaked photos. And, just this weekend we heard about the device’s impressive specs, which include Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor. Today, however, we’ve stumbled upon actual press renders of the alleged handset, leading us to believe that an official announcement is inevitable.

The device will purportedly be known as the One X 5, though it’s entirely possible we could see Verizon’s exclusive Droid branding on the phone before it arrives. The Taiwanese manufacturer’s newest handset is expected to feature a 5-inch display with full 1080p resolution, equating to a retina-soothing 480ppi. There’s no word on a release date, but HTC does have an event planned for this Wednesday in New York City, and we’ll be there to bring you all the latest.

HTC’s upcoming “Ph-ablet” device heading to Verizon with 1080p display and quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor

HTC’s first attempt to challenge Samsung’s “ph-ablet” (phone/tablet) device in the Galaxy Note II has surfaced via a leaked photo. Code named as the HTC DIx, this device will feature a whopping 1080p display along with a pixel density of 480ppi. There’s indication that the device will don a 5″ screen, although I wouldn’t be surprised if it turned out to be a little bit bigger than that once it’s officially announced. The DIx will also feature Qualcomm’s new 1.5GHz quad-core S4 processor along with 1.5GB’s of RAM.

The leaked photo above clearly shows Verizon’s red accent color that’s usually found on their phones. A release date is still unknown for this device so keep your eye out for further news. Would this be a device you guys would be interested in? One thing’s for sure, with that high of a ppi, I sure hope HTC packed it with one hell of a battery. Sound off in the comments!

T-Mobile’s HTC One X+ Could Be Delayed For A Bigger Battery

The potential release of the HTC  One X+ has become more and more of a reality with each passing week, but now there are reports that T-Mobile’s version of the One X+ will be delayed with no mention of an expected launch date. The delay could be the cause of the phone getting a larger battery.

From what we know about the One X+, it’s pretty much the same phone as the One X with the exception of the faster Tegra 3 Plus Processor. Now with a stronger battery the phone becomes even more interesting. Do you think a thicker phone along with better battery life is worth the wait? I do.

Tegra 3 powered HTC One X+ device shows up at FCC, includes LTE

A new HTC device going by the model number PM63100 has shown up in the FCC database. According the documents available, this new smartphone will have LTE capability, just as we suspected based on information slowly leaking out about the device over the past month. The model number corresponds to an HTC device that appeared on the GLBenchmark site back in July that was powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 processor running at 1.7GHz. Many think this new device will be the HTC One X+, a revision of their current flagship device the HTC One X. According to some specs that were released last week by an XDA forum member, the HTC One X+ will carry 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and will come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean installed. Based on the LTE bands identified in the FCC documents, it appears the device may be headed to AT&T, though we have also reported it should show up in T-Mobile’s lineup as well.
