AT&T One X+ priced at $199.99, One VX priced at $49.99

Both smartphones from HTC will go on sale Friday, with pre-orders from the One X+ already being accepted.


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.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
