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.
