AT&T officially launches the HTC One X+ smartphone

by: Robert NelsonNovember 16, 2012

AT&T had been offering the HTC One X smartphone, and as of today, they also have the HTC One X+ available for purchase. The One X remains priced at $99.99 and the new addition, the One X+ is priced at $199.99. In other words, you will be paying an extra $100 for the plus.

Lets talk specs and see if that $100 premium will be worth the expense. As a spoiler though, we are thinking the answer would be a yes. That said, here are the improved specs so you can decide. The HTC One X+ has a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 64GB of internal storage, NFC, a 2100 mAh battery, 1.6 megapixel front-facing camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The original One X has 16GB of internal storage, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, 1800 mAh battery and is still running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Otherwise, the One X+ has a 4.7-inch (1280 x 720) Super LCD 2 display, 1GB of RAM, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video recording and the HTC Sense 4+ user interface.

All said and done, considering you are making a two-year commitment — we think the extra $100 will be well spent. Of course, if you are on a strict $100 budget, the regular One X is still a solid phone.

    i called 4 att stores, none of them have it in stock. online order only for now
    Miami area.

    • Ryan

      Same with me. Called 3 stores, 2 had no idea and 1 said they has 5 in stock (which is really weird because a carrier wouldn’t just get 5 devices).

        Wait im confused. When willl the htc one x plus come out cause i want to buy it tomorrow. From new york so any details plzzz reply

  • Yan Kar

    can some one explain me how the 1 gb of ram stocks against 2 gb of ram on android? i can’t find a clear answer anywhere.

    • John

      2gig>1g Sense uses to much ram resulting in reloading of apps/webpages/games which is very very annoying. The lack of ram will kill this phone just as it does on the HoX or Evo LTE.

      • Twisted247

        Really? Check your info on that one buddy. To Yan Kar 1Gb will do fine.

        “John” HTC does fine with optimizing the RAM they have on board. Case and Point is the Evo LTE(which you listed lmao) The Evo LTE was running the EXACT same processor as the Samsung Galaxy s3 AND the s3 had 2GB of RAM where the Evo LTE had 1GB. Yet the Evo LTE beat it in the benchmarks and in side to side comparison it did tasks more efficiently with less lag. So how about you shut up and do some more research before spitting shit like you know and its a fact….OK?

        And this is coming from a Gn2 owner so I am not Prejudice

  • The HTC website says it has “1.7 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 AP37 and MDM 9215m” under processor. The article says Snapdragon S4 (no Pro, but it says Quad Core). I’m confused…Could someone clearly list out the actual specs, and the differences from the OneX in a better way?

    Walked into a att store today and asked if they had the one x plus and they said they didn’t know anything about that phone. how can they not its only sold at att.

    • Derek

      Att is horrible! I walked in Friday too. No one even knew about the phone. They thought I was talking about the htc one x. I called next day and got same response. After several minutes of complaining a lady looked at Att website, and ended up finding six one x plus in the back of the store. Rediculous
