Leaked Advert Suggests HTC One X+ Is On The Way

HTC is gearing up to release an updated version of the One X flagship device, named the One X+, according to a leaked page from a forthcoming O2 brochure.

The page shows a device that appears to be visually identical to the One X, along with a description of its features and news that it will be “coming soon”. The blurb makes no mention of the screen size, so we can assume that the One X+ will be keeping the same 4.7-inch, high definition screen seen on the One X. It’s the same story with the camera too, which is stated to be 8 megapixels.

Internally though, things have changed, as the 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor has been given a speed boost to 1.7GHz, and the One X+ will have a maximum of 64GB internal storage, plus 25GB extra from Dropbox.

Also, the Android operating system has been upgraded from Ice Cream Sandwich to 4.1 Jelly Bean, which depending on when the One X+ hits the shelves, will make it one of the first phones to have Google’s latest Android version already installed. The One X is also expected to start seeing an over-the-air upgrade to 4.1 Jelly Bean very soon too.

The phone doesn’t have a release date, but it does have a pay as you go price of £479, with contracts and tariffs expected after it launches.

HTC has messed around with its upper-range Android phones before, following the Sensation from April 2011 with the Sensation XE in September 2011, where the processor was boosted from 1.2GHz to 1.5GHz.

All we have to do now is wait for HTC to officially announce the One X+. We wonder if it will come at the same time as the HTC One X5?
