    The enhanced version of the HTC One X+ that we have been hearing rumors about for weeks has now been officially unveiled by HTC. The device has some pretty amazing innovations that really make it worth checking out. First of all, they figured out a way to squeeze LTE in with a higher clocked version of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core chip. Second, the phone will come with Jelly Bean and an improved version of Sense 4 they call Sense 4+. There are also a number of other hardware and software tweaks. Here's a breakdown below:
    • 4.7" 1280x720 display
    • 1GB of RAM
    • Beats Audio
    • 8MP rear-facing camera
    • A beefier Cortex-A9 NVIDIA Tegra 3 AP37 processor running at 1.7GHz enhanced over the previous 1.5GHz
    • ULP GeForce NVIDIA GPU, running at 520MHz up from 416MHz
    • 64GB of internal storage up from 32GB
    • 2100mAh battery up from 1800mAh, and supposedly up to 6 hours of extra talk time
    • 8MP rear-facing camera
    • 1.6MP front-facing camera up from 1.3MP
    • 135g - slightly heavier but only by 5 grams up from 130g - which is probably not an improvement depending on your point of view
    • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (obviously a happy upgrade) - with Sense 4+
    • Self Portrait mode for the front-facing camera that detects faces and "applies subtle enhancements to skin and eyes"
    • Sightseeing mode that enables a one-touch access to the camera that bypasses the lockscreen
    • Two new Gallery views that group media by location and date
    • Tap and Go for connecting (presumably NFC-enabled) the One X+ to selected Beats speakers
    • HTC Watch 2.0 and Video Hub
    Here's the full press release:

    This is what the HTC One X should have been from the beginning.

    I think the previous specs were just fine when it was released except for 1gb of RAM. I like having 2gb in my S3. I'm not a fan of these small refreshes though. At least not so close together.

    I'm thinking more about the battery.

    I like what Samsung has been doing lately, releasing two flagships, the Galaxy S and Note. I'd hate to have the Note 2+ come out months after buying the Note 2.

    I like it. I've had a chance to use a friends One X and it's nice. I really can't wait until that comes out here. Does anyone know if VZ is getting this or is AT&T getting all the good phones again?

    This looks super nice in black. Like someone mentioned though, there's a good chance VZW wont be getting it.
    I just hope the next Nexus phone does come to verizon, its really the only phone I see replacing my GN.
    This does have potential though :happy3:

    If only it didn't have Sense and had a larger stock battery.

    HTC says they're trying to regain their foothold in the market, yet don't release a new top tier device for the largest U.S. carrier... makes sense.

    I like it. But I'm definitely skeptical that a 16.7% increase in battery will lead to 6 moure hours of talk time

    First off, its only speculation that its only going to be on AT&T and second, big red has been treating HTC as the red headed step child as of late, so it may not be their fault if Verizon wants to be stupid.

    Don't come in here with facts, man! VZ always gets my ire and today it was simply HTC's turn to take the blame for not pushing hard enough to get their phone on the network =p
