HTC will release a faster, more robust successor to the One X by early October, according to an anonymous source within the company.

The preliminary info, obtained by Stuff, suggests that the "Endeavour C2" HTC One X+ will feature a quad-core 1.7GHz Tegra 3 processor and run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. What's more, HTC is said to be including ClearVoice technology for improved call quality, an updated HTC Watch experience, and a pair of UrBeats earphones.

Rather than releasing a new model altogether, the details indicate we may be in for more of a refresh of the current model. The Stuff also advises that the handset will be compatible with HTC One accessories and will come in a new color option.

With the HTC One X+ expected to arrive on U.K. shelves on or before October 1, we could be treated to an announcement in the near term. Factor in the company's rumored Galaxy Note competitor and you've got the makings of a full-on press event. If that's the case, things could get pretty interesting for Android fans in the next few weeks.
