HTC has announced the updated version of its One X flagship Android smartphone, with the new device upgradeable to the Jelly Bean version of the Google operating system.
The One X+ will launch in Europe and North Asia this month and in South Asia from November. The device has a 1.7GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra processor, which is faster than the One X, 64GB of internal memory and a battery that gives up to 50% more talk time, equating to an extra six hours.
Its Sense 4+ Android overlay has new features, including a Self-Portrait mode where the front camera can apply enhancements to skin and eyes when taking a photo. A sightseeing mode can take a user directly to the camera by them pushing the power button. In its Gallery, videos and pictures can be grouped according to when and where they were taken. The handset will also be available in an LTE compatible version through EE.
Peter Chou, CEO of HTC, said: 'We are taking the HTC One X to a new level with the introduction of the new HTC One X+. Our customers will have super-fast browsing, an even better camera and more immersive entertainment with Beats Audio.'
Last month, HTC announced two new Windows Phone 8 devices, which will be launched in the coming weeks.
