First Look: HTC's pumped up One X+

1:51 /

HTC infuses a fresh helping of new components into its One X+ including quad-core power.

Hey guys, this is Brian Bennett for cnet.com. And right now, we're taking a first look at the brand new HTC One X+. Now, this device is gonna be available on AT&T. We're at the launch event right now and what this phone basically is-- is the HTC One X, but it has an updated processor instead of a 1.2 gigahertz 2 core Snapdragon S 4. It now has a 1.7 gigahertz quad-core processor. So, as you can see it's [unk] here. We still have the same 4.7-inch LCD screen that was on the One X. Also, it's actually running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which is an upgrade over the previous model, which had 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We've got the screen up here. We've got a front facing camera right up on top. The typical Android control buttons on the bottom of the screen, it's still pretty thin, pretty much the same size. It looks to me as the original One X and has that same polycarbonate, very handsome design, so an addition to the quad-core 1.7 gigahertz processor on the HTC One X+. You also have connection to AT&T's fast four GL TE network. It's got Beats Audio just like the other HTC phones and on back is 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, also has that HTC Sense music system that helps time performance. So, there you have it. We've just taken a first look at the HTC One X+ for AT&T. Right now, there's no word on availability except for the holiday season and there's no pricing yet. Be sure to check back soon for a full review at cnet.com.
