HTC will get another shot at making an impression on AT&T customers.

AT&T said late yesterday that it will sell the upgraded version of HTC's flagship phone, the One X+, for $199.99 with a two-year contract. The previously announced phone will go on sale Friday, with pre-orders already being accepted.

A second, lower-end smartphone, the One VX, will also go on sale on Friday for $49.99 with a contract.

Despite critical buzz for its design and user interface, HTC's One X didn't blow anyone away with its sales. The One X+ adds a quad-core processor to the device, bringing it up to par with the quad-core international version of the One X, which lacked LTE.

The One X+ runs on Android 4.1, or Jelly Bean, and features a 1.7GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor with a battery-saving fifth core.

The One VX has a 9.19mm-thick unibody design and a 4.5-inch high-definition display with Corning's Gorilla Glass 2.

Still, the HTC phones are just one of a myriad of smartphones AT&T is launching this holiday season as it looks to ease itself off its dependency on the iPhone.
