HTC shows off early One X+ design sketches

The HTC One X+ may look identical to the original One X in nearly every way, but that doesn’t mean the team behind the phone didn’t go back to the drawing board — literally — when creating the updated version of the phone. The design team at HTC took the opportunity to refine what made the One X such a beautiful handset while managing to cram in an larger battery other modified internals. The result is a phone that HTC hopes is as pleasing to the hand as it is to they eye. That’s not even mentioning the powerful new 1.7GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor inside. Check out the full look at the link below.

    And by One X+, they really just mean the One X..

    • Ben Crisp

      But with a new camera, processor, colour scheme, software version, bigger (2100 mAh) battery and a different name

      • Tommy Thompson

        The camera isn’t different. Processor, color scheme, software, battery, and name doesn’t affect the outside….and didn’t. The outside shell is the One X, which is what I was referring to in my initial comment.

          They updated the camera software. (Sense 4+)

          • Tommy Thompson

            Updated software doesn’t equal a “new camera”

          • RavenFox

            Its okay you can stop now.

      • SiloNova

        Slightly faster? Slightly better? Slightly different? Different software? Should have been called the iPhone X+.

        • scoter man1

          Except its 100 times better than the iPhone anyway.

        • Ahhk

          But the maps work!

        • ari_free

          You mean the camera has a purple flare and the maps take you to Gilligan’s Island?

  • Marsg

    HTC’s problem isnt the handset its their buisness practices, by having the One X be a exclusive device to only one or two crarriers they are missing out on a huge consumer base, learn from Samsung, after they made the S3 available to everyone, the S3 is now the best selling device on the market.

    • Samuel Williams

      Ahhhhhh, I been trying to tell HTC Boss Peter Chou that for years, only if I knew him. Apple even jumped on that also. Everyone gets the flagship device not just Verizon and AT&T.

    • DavidVarghese

      Actually…

      At&t got the One X
      Sprint got the Evo LTE (Variant of the One X)
      T-mobile got the mid-range One S
      Only carrier left out is Verizon (they might receive the rumored 5-inch HTC later)

      I’m pretty sure if you count all of their “One” lines, they would have a decent sale figures, might not be as good as Sammy’s though

      • C-Law

        No, Verizon wasn’t left out. They got the DROID incredible 4G lte. It’s a one s variant

        • DavidVarghese

          Oh yeah, true

    • ari_free

      It also makes it harder to update the phones.

  • DavidVarghese

    I think they released an upgraded version of the One X to attract more new customers to HTC; give them a reason to pick up the One X+ with its faster quad core processor and bigger battery…
    It’s not meant to be an upgrade to current One X owners…

  • Gary Graf

    Couldn’t have switched to on screen buttons, huh? get with the times

  • Daniel

    If this came to Sprint I would buy it. I’m not a big fan of the Htc Evo 4g lte

  • a) youth.in.asia

    The guy spent more time on his signature then he did on this sketch, basically start with one X, erase this, add that, sign, done! (profit)

    Must be the same guy that designed the marvelous innovationPhone 5…
