We’ve been hearing a lot about the HTC One X+, which may or may not be delayed due to increasing the battery size. With fans already anticipated for the upcoming device, it looks like it could be a major contender for the infamous Galaxy Note II, set to release in the UK early October.
Luckily the folks over at GSMArena, have a leaked O2 Wireless brochure, flashing the One X+. The specs match up to what we’ve been reporting, which are… well… quite beastly:
- 1.7GHz quad-core processor
- Whopping 64GB of internal-storage
- 8 mega-pixel camera
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
- Beats Audio support
- And lastly, 25GB of Dropbox storage
HTC took the wraps off a new version of their HTC One X at the Chinese Telecommunications Fair. Going by the name HTC One XC, the phone will have a 4.7-inch 1280×720 pixel screen and 1GB of RAM. Images of the case suggest it will come in black with gold trim elements. Several sources are reporting this device will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 chip. It is unclear how accurate this may be as HTC’s page for the device on their Chinese site indicates the One XC has a dual-core processor. The bad news for most readers is that the device may never make it outside of the Chinese market. Hit the break for some additional images. Read more
Thanks to @evleaks, we have a decent image of the upcoming T-Mobile HTC One X+. We still don’t have a release date yet, and to further complicate things, we recently heard that it could be delayed for a bigger battery.
The rumored specs include a Tegra 3+ AP37 1.6GHz quad-core / 1.7GHz single-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 1800mAh battery (could be increased), and Sense 4.5 on top of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It will come in at 9.3mm thick and weigh in at 129 grams.

Last week we saw a leaked Verizon roadmap that listed the DROID Incredible X, which will sport a 5-inch 1080p display as well as the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus. The latest news out of GSMArena is that an anonymous tipster claims that the same device will also be a Google Nexus device, called the Nexus 5. It’s obviously not the 5th version of a Nexus phone, so it’s a play on the display size, just like the Nexus 7.
Other than the display and CPU I already mentioned, it will also sport 2GB of RAM, a 12MP camera, 64GB of storage, and a 2500mAh battery. These are essentially the same specs as the DROID Incredible X, but the the Nexus 5 will have one glaring difference; stock Android. Speaking of that, the rumor is that there won’t be a major version of Android announced, but we could see Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which would include some bug fixes and other enhancements. I’m thinking the multi account feature that we recently saw might be one of those “enhancements.”
If you find that you’re sick of the Apple iPhone and are interested in grabbing yourself an Android phone instead, HTC has the incentive to entice customers to come on over to the wild side. The manufacturer has presented a solid promotion where customers can trade in their iPhone (in fully functional and good condition, of course) and buy a One X instead, with a side of $99 urBeats headsets thrown in for free. Naturally customers may not expect to get top dollar for the iPhone compared to online listings like Craigslist or eBay, but you gotta admit— the idea of having the awesome One X with a sweet headset may be too good of a deal to pass up.
The promotion ends on October 21st, so those of you iPhone owners on the fence about switching over will have some time to think about it. Hopefully you’ll find a reason or two to help make the decision a little easier.
Our friends at Phone Arena received the latest Verizon roadmap and it shows some interesting stuff. Now we already know about the upcoming HTC phone sporting a 5-inch display and rocking a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, but this roadmap reveals how they will market it. It looks like it will be called the DROID Incredible X as opposed the the HTC One X 5. According to the map, it will launch in November, just about one year after the Rezound. The model number is ADR6435LVW
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.
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.

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.
