HTC recently unveiled the One X+ as an upgraded version of the original One X which was first announced during the MWC in Barcelona. This new variant has some extra Beats Audio branding with a red accent around the camera sensor as well the three capacitive buttons on the front. The new smartphone also has a few new under-the-hood features like the overclocked CPU, better audio integration, newer UI etc.
And now this fancy new smartphone is up for pre order via Expansys U.S for an undisclosed amount. The retailer will let you place the pre order now and will provide you the pricing and availability details when the device is ready to ship. Bear in mind, this is the unlocked version of the device and there’s no carrier obligation, so you have to commit to pay the full retail price of the smartphone when it is launched. The price is expected to be well over $600 for the One X+. Another thing to remember is that the device will not support 4G LTE, as it’s an imported version of the One X+ with Tegra 3 on board (which doesn’t support 4G LTE).
The One X+ is a great device to have at the moment, but given the limitations of the device for the American users, it might be wise to wait until carriers launch their own version of the smartphone. The predecessor has done quite well in the U.S and the same is expected from this one too. The international HTC One X+ comes with the same 4.7-inch Super Clear LCD display with HD resolution, 8MP rear camera and a 1.6MP front facing camera both with HTC ImageSense technology, 1GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard storage (could be market specific) and a slightly better 2,100 mAh battery among other things. The HTC One X+ will also run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box and a slightly revamped version of the HTC Sense UI known as the HTC Sense 4+.
So there you have it, if you wish to get your hands on the One X+ before it arrives Stateside, make sure you head over to Expansys’ site and place the order for the smartphone. Warranty might be an issue with imported cellphones, which is something you need to know more about before placing the order. You cannot go wrong with a smartphone like the One X+ especially since it’s HTC’s newest flagship. Let’s hope AT&T, Verizon and Sprint have their own versions of the smartphone. Choice is good after all.
