T-Mobile’s HTC Era 42 = HTC One X+? Could be a pure Google phone with Tegra 3+ processor?

Well, so much for seeing HTC making the imaginary T-Mobile G3. To be fair, we did hint (albeit a little) that there’s a possibility that the rumored HTC Era 42 will turn out to be the HTC One X. We just missed the mark by a single “plus”. The latest whispers now indicate that that T-Mobile will be getting a revamped version of the HTC One X in fall, the HTC One X+.

If accurate, what will the “plus” sign on T-Mobile’s variant of the HTC One X signify? Will we be seeing a One X that comes with a microSD card slot AND a removable battery? Or could it be something even bigger, like the use of a more powerful Tegra 3+ processor at a higher clock speed than the predecessor? That’s what Androidandme believes, and it’s one that we tend to believe and hope for as well.

If the thought of seeing a Tegra 3+ HTC One X powered by a 1.7GHz Tegra 3+ chip doesn’t excite you, past rumors also suggest that we could be looking at a pure Google device. Imagine all the HTC One X goodness, minus HTC Sense. The release date of the phone on T-Mobile doesn’t seem to be too far off from the plethora of Nexus phones that Google plans to release before the end of the year.

We know that we’re throwing a bunch of hearsays and rumors, but this is all we have to play with for now. Aren’t you excited about the HTC One X+ sporting a Tegra 3+ processor? What are the odds of it being a pure Google device? Please leave your thought and comments below.

    I have never been so excited about a phone, if all these rumors hold true, I think this could be enough for me to give T-Mo crappy ass service a shot.

      What you claim to be crappy service only exist where you are. Here in the BIG CITY meaning New York City Tmobile bitch slaps Verizon all day long. Matter of fact I Gladly kicked Verizon to the curb June 28th for Tmobile and it’s HSPA PLUS GSM 42MPS network. I more than happy to leave Verizon and it’s overrated battery draining cdma Lte network. GSM technology trumps cdma and that’s why most Verizon handsets have very poor Dbm which means dreadful reception and beyond poor signal strength that’s why my Verizon Galaxy Nexus was sold for my Tmobile Galaxy S3. I am doing things with my Galaxy S3 that I never enjoyed with my Galaxy Nexus on Verizon.

        I never said it was crappy everywhere, anybody with any knowledge of the cell industry should know the reputation of reception between the companies is relative to the location. And as far as big cities, i can get to downtown Houston from my house in about 40 minutes. Even thought we get decent reception from all the Big 4, the worst out of them is T-Mo. And I will agree with you on everything else you said about cdma and gsm and Verizon. I just so happen to be on Verizon with a GNex right now. And plan to get off of it when my contract is up in a few months and plan on going to ATT, but this phone could possibly sway me. So dont get all butthurt and offended just because I said something about your cell service company, sweetheart.

          If you haven’t already take a look at the HTC Evitare UL that AT&T is supposed to be getting. It looks very similar to this phone minus vanilla Android, and cold save you the headache that T-Mobile seems to be for most people.

        Here, let me fix that for you: What you claim to be *amazing* service only *exists* where you are. It’s still perfectly valid and absolutely true. Just because T-Mobile’s cell service where you are in NYC “bitch slaps” Verizon’s service, doesn’t mean it’s the same in the rest of the state, let alone the rest of the US. In fact, roughly 20 miles Northeast from you live and work, according to T-Mobile’s own coverage maps, is a broad swath of 2G area. Try going somewhere more than 5 miles from where you live and work and see just how “bitch slapping” T-Mobile’s service is then. What a moron.

          Oh yeah like you know so much . give it up Sprint butthole. Your carrier isn’t at all doing any better that’s for sure

          • squiddy20

            1. It’s been proven time and time again that I know more than you at least, so in that regard, yeah I do “know so much”.
            2. I know so much because I actually look up what I’m writing about instead of just spouting off crap that isn’t the least bit true like you’ve always done.
            3. Good job at replying to a comment 23 days old. Coming from you who constantly insults me about not having a life, it seems you don’t have much of one either if you’ve got the time to go through 23 days worth of my comments and/or “trolling” the web for my comments.
            4. I don’t really care how well Sprint is doing. I’m around Wifi at home, work, and most recreational areas, so I don’t care that much about data speeds, and I can’t complain about call quality. Keep up those “useless” insults though. Oh how they make me laugh :)

          • yarrellray

            Yeah sure they do. Most of us in the real world have a life we don’t need to be surfing the Internet everyday such as yourself. Clearly your a child with nothing of true importance happening in your pitiful life. Gotta crack up at you thou one day you will start paying your way and get off your parents coat tails and out of there basement.

          • squiddy20

            “Most of us in the real world have a life we don’t need to be surfing the Internet everyday” …says the dope who just replied to my comment within 12 minutes. Good one you stupid hypocrite.

        Here in Los Angeles T-Mobile beats all competitors. The service is EXCELLENT. I too left sorry ass Verizon for T-Mobile and would never consider them again. Thanks T-Mobile I love you guys!!!

    HTC would never release a device without Sense on it unless it’s a Nexus device.Simple as that.They think HTC sense is better than vanilla. They think that Sense is better and customers buy their phones for Sense. They also think customers are ok with no removable battery,smaller capacity batteries and no expandable storage as long as it’s thin.

    • chukis13

      Both the G1 and G2 are HTC and are not sense.

      • derekross

        These phones were also releseased before OEM UI’s were the thing to do.

        • TnazilChowdury

          Ehh, not the G2. Sense was common among all HTC devices at that point. Also, the European version (Desire Z) had Sense.

    • Louis B

      And they’re right, to some people. Just because you dont agree doesnt make it wrong.

    • Joey

      I buy them for sense. Sense is bad ass to me and I feel sorry for folks without it.

  • AndroidBrian

    I rather have a SD card slot & removable battery than a faster processor. HTC ONE X is plenty fast. This wouldnt do much for me besides showing off benchmarks.

    It being a pure Google phone doesnt seem likely, just sounds like wishful thinking to me. What made you even say it will be pure Google? Are you trying to say this maybe T-Mobiles Nexus device?

  • Joe333x

    After having the G2x I would never buy a phone with a Tegra processor, NVidia never releases the drivers and it screws up all after market development. I hope you are wrong and it ends up being the G3.

    • silver

      nvidia never releases drivers? :D maybe you just dont know where to look for them, because they release drivers almost every 2 weeks, even for old hw

    pure Google sucks. Absoluty hideous. No Sense. No se.
