First Look: The beefed up, quad-core HTC One X+

2:36 /

AT&T's new device, the $199.99 HTC X+ flaunts a fat 64GB of onboard storage, Tegra 3 quad-core CPU, Android Jelly Bean, plus 4G LTE.

-Hi, this is Brian Bennett for CNET.com, and today, we're taking a first look at the HTC One X+ for AT&T. This handset cost 199.99, and is available now for purchase. As its name suggest, the HTC One X+ is essentially a revamp and pumped up version of its predecessor, the HTC One X. So, what does that really mean? Well, for one, instead of the 1.5 gigahertz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip, which powered the U.S. model of the One X. The One X+ runs a 1.7 gigahertz quad-core Tegra 3 processor from NVIDIA. Also nice is that the HTC One X+ features android 4.1 Jelly Bean software as well as HTCs latest version of the Sense UI called Sense 4+. The most important attribute of the One X+, however, it comes with a mass of 64 gigabytes of internal storage. I don't know about you, but that's enough to easily hold my entire music collection about 3 times over, and while it's still true, the One X+ like the One X before, it lacks an SD card slot having this much memory goes a long way to helping me forget this. I also think the HTC One X+'s style molded from a single piece of polycarbonate, the black plastic material HTC selected, a few of the company calls carbon feels high grade, not cheap. I like the phone's soft touch finish too, which ha a slate like texture that wicks moisture away and absorbs fingerprints. A over a third of an inch too, the One X+ is just as thin as the slim One X. Above the screen is a 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera capable of shooting in 1080p HD. Below are 3 capacitive buttons for android functions. The right side holds a long volume bar, while up top are head phone jack, power button, and SIM card slot. Around back is a phone's 8-megapixel camera and LED flash. Other interesting features include Beats audio processing technology, the latest 4+ user interface, and connection to AT&T's 4G LTE data network. The HTC One X comes with an excellent camera that's fast plus has ton of features and shooting mode such as an HDR mode, panorama, continuous shooting, and the ability to snapshots while recording video. At first glance, the HTC One X has plenty of going for it. Check back soon at CNET.com for a full review. I'm Brian Benett, and this has been a first look at the HTC One X+.
