HTC unveils One X+ with quad-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

HTC One X+ has been the subject of various leaks and the Taiwanese company's latest flagship is now official. Tuesday, HTC announced the launch of HTC One X+, the successor to the popular HTC One X. The HTC One X+ features a 1.7 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 AP37 processor, 64GB of internal storage and a 4.7-inch display. Other improvements include a bigger, 2100mAh battery that, according to HTC, offers 50% more talk time compared to its predecessor, and a beefed-up front-facing camera. The phone comes with the same 8-megapixel rear camera that shipped with the HTC One X.

The new phone also features “Tap to Go”  to pair up with Beats branded speakers and Headphones.  The 8-megapixel rear module with f/2.0 lens and ImageChip-assist is the same, but the camera software’s been slightly tweaked with the addition of two new modes: Self Portrait for subtle retouching of front facing shots and Sightseeing which allows for quick launch of the camera app.

Thankfully, unlike so many other new launches, HTC One X+ will ship with the latest version of Android, Jelly Bean, on board. Of course HTC's own Sense 4+ sits atop Android 4.1. Also bundled is Beats Audio with new Tap and Go function, which allows you to connect the phone and your music to Beats speakers' when you tap them, not dissimilar to the NFC-equipped Bluetooth speakers that Nokia demoed at the Lumia 920 launch.

In terms of internal storage, the HTC One XC has 16 GB of internal storage along with expandable memory slot of 32 GB. For connectivity, the device has Bluetooth, WiFi, DLNA functionality, 3G cellular connectivity and micro USB port.

 The HTC One X+ will be available in Europe and North Asia this month and South Asia (including India) in November.
