The handset will also receive a significant increase in internal storage, with a 64GB option added to the already available 32GB model. Despite the changes in hardware, the One X+ will maintain the same physical size as the One X handset seen earlier in the year, and only add 5 grams to the overall weight.

There will be two versions available, depending on the carrier networks; a 4G version and an HSPA+ version. The Tegra 3 chip provides a quad-core processor, clocked to an impressive 1.7GHz.

Perhaps the most important change is that HTC will increase the size of the battery compared with the earlier models up to 2100mAh capacity — or the same battery size used by Samsung in the Galaxy S3.

There's been no word yet on local availability, but we'll update this article if we hear any news from the Aussie telcos. If you want to catch up on HTC's latest releases, check out our reviews of the One X and One XL .
