It is obvious that HTC isn’t going to let the lucrative Q4 market roll by without trying to entice customers with some new devices.  In the case of the One X+, it is a slightly improved version of the leader in the One series. Now we already know most things about the HTC One X+, the details of which have been confirmed by its recent FCC filing. But HTC apparently isn’t quite satisfied yet and is going to make some final tweak to the phone.

While it hasn’t been fully confirmed, HTC Source has received tips that the HTC One X+ is due for a battery makeover, even before it hits the market. There’s no word yet on how big of an upgrade we’d be looking at, but it’s bound to carry a larger battery capacity than the expected 1,800mAh power pack. It is possible that the One X+ will gain a waistline to accommodate the new battery.

For all the things that HTC has gotten right with the original One X, the small-ish battery, compared to its nearest rival at that time, the Samsung Galaxy S3, wasn’t one of them. If accurate, the reportedly larger battery should please supporters and silence naysayers. It’d definitely make the specs of the phone – quad-core 1.6GHz Tegra 3+ CPU, 1GB RAM, Sense 4.5, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean – that much more pleasing to the senses.

Since HTC is planning a press event on September 19, we’ll find out soon enough if the rumor holds true. Are you excited to see what HTC has up its sleeve?
