Following on the heels of HTC's international HTC One X+ announcement we hear from AT&T and HTC that three new HTC devices will be coming in the next couple of months, including a One X+. HTC will also roll out the mid-level HTC One VX and in November the HTC 8X Windows Phone 8 device. It is nice to see the One X+ will have the same quad-core processor and increased internal storage capacity as the international version too. Unfortunately, we don't yet have any pricing or solid availability information for any of the three devices.
The HTC One X is an excellent device on AT&T that has sold quite well. The new version, the HTC One X+, gets updated with a 1.7 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 64GB of internal storage, and 2100 mAh battery. It will be the first AT&T smartphone to combine Android 4.1 and a quad-core processor. It will also come in carbon black. Other specifications of the AT&T HTC One X+ include:
It has been a long time since I have seen Vx in a mobile device name with the Palm Vx being one of the best Palm PDAs ever made. The HTC One VX is a mid-level Android device that should be priced competitively. The specifications are decent and include the following:
The HTC One VX and the existing One X will both be updated to Android Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 4+ so if you have a One X at this time you will have a fresh device that is still a great smartphone.
Other than the cool colors and sleek design, we don't know much about how well these new Windows Phone 8 devices work since Microsoft is keeping a lid on Windows Phone 8 at this time. I am very interested to see what colors end up on each carrier and unfortunately AT&T did not reveal that with this announcement. The Windows Phone 8X has a 4.3 inch 720p HD display and 8 megapixel camera with HTC ImageChip and Beats Audio integration.
