We’re in Singapore for HTC’s regional launch of the HTC One X+, Windows Phone 8X and 8S. The 8X and 8S from HTC are dubbed first signature Windows Phone devices which runs on the latest Windows Phone 8 while the One X+ is their latest flagship for the Android platform.
To recap on the specs, the HTC One X+ is a bumped up version of its earlier HTC One X smart phone that comes with a large 4.7″ Super LCD2 display. The internals have been upgraded with newer quad-core Tegra 3 AP37 processor running at 1.6GHz and it comes with 64GB of on-board storage. In addition, it also comes with 25GB of dropbox cloud storage for 2 years. It still retains the same Super LCD2 display pushing 1280×720 pixels, 1GB of RAM and the snappy 8MP shooter with image sense.
The front facing camera has been upgraded to a 1.6MP shooter and the built-in non-removable battery has been increased to 2,100mAh capacity. It runs on the current Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Sense UI. With all the extra upgrades, it still maintain the same 8.9mm thickness but with a slight increase of 5 grams in weight. The HTC One X+ will be available in mid-November which is about 2 weeks from now.
UPDATE: HTC One X+ availability delayed to mid-November.
HTC is gearing up to launch its latest flagship Android, the One X+ with a regional event scheduled to happen tomorrow (Friday, November 2) in Singapore. As always, we will be where the action is to bring you a first-hand look at what HTC say is their best Android smartphone ever — wonder where that puts the full HTC J Butterfly 5-inch full HD display, 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm S4 (MDM9615 + APQ8064) processor with 2GB of RAM and 2.1MP front facing camera.
We’re also expecting the HTC 8X running Windows Phone 8 to make its debut in SEA at the event, so that’s something to look forward to as well.
Officially announced in October this year, the HTC One X+ improves on one of our favourite Android smartphones, the HTC One X, with a beefed up 1.7GHz Tegra 3 quad-core processor (versus a 1.5GHz Tegra 3 unit in the One X). The battery has also been uprated to a 2,100mAh unit from 1,800mAh in the previous version. You also get a 1.6MP front facing camera (versus 1.3MP in the previous version). Everything else on the One X+ is identical to the One X.
We’ve been informed that the One X+ goes on sale this Sunday. Pricing details have not been revealed but expect it to be around the RM2,000 mark, maybe just below. You can also expect operator offerings as well but all these details are tentative at the moment. Stay tuned as we bring you updates. Follow us on Twitter for the very latest on the HTC One X+

The HTC One X+ is finally revealed with no surprises on the specification. Seen as a refresh of its flagship HTC One X, the One X+ comes with upgraded hardware such as a new Tegra 3 processor that goes up to 1.7GHz, 1.6MP front facing camera, larger 2,100mAh battery and 64GB of on board storage. According to HTC, the new Tegra 3 processor offers 67% improvement over its predecessor.
It still maintains the same 8.9mm thickness but the weight has increased slightly to 135 grams from 130 grams to cater for extra 300mAh of juice. The rest of the specs remain unchanged with the similar 4.7″ Super LCD2 display with 1280×720 resolution, 1GB of RAM and the same snappy 8MP f/2.0 camera.
Just like the original One X, it still lacks micro SD expansion and the battery is non user removable. Out of the box, the HTC One X+ runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It is expected to go on sale in Asia beginning November where a regional launch is expected soon. Check out full product details over at HTC One X+ product page.
For existing HTC One X and One S users, HTC has also added that the new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update with Sense 4+ will be rolling out soon beginning this month.
