November 16th is shaping up to be a really huge day for AT&T, the nation’s second largest wireless carrier. The company already has the Samsung Galaxy Camera and the Samsung Galaxy Express launching that day, and now two of its phones are confirmed to be launching at the end of this week, as well.
The HTC One X+ and HTC One VX are going to be joining the gigantic stable of Android smartphones on Ma Bell’s 4G LTE network, with the former costing you $200 on a two-year contract and the latter costing you $50 for the same terms. You can pre-order the HTC One X+ starting November 13th if you can’t wait to throw your money straight into AT&T’s coffers.
The One X+ is a nice refresh on HTC’s early 2012 model. It featured Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 processor, and while that dual-core bundle of goodness served its purpose well folks should be happy to know that the One X+ will be outfitted with NVIDIA’s 1.7GHz quad-core Tegra 3 chipset.
Beyond that you’re also getting a 4.7 inch HD display, a whopping 64GB of internal storage, a 2,100 mAh battery, NFC, an 8 megapixel 1080p HD camera and more. More importantly, the phone is coming with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box and will feature HTC Sense 4+.
On the other hand, the One VX is a bit more modest but looks to be a fantastic offering for those looking for a mid-range Android handset. It offers a 4.5 inch qHD display, a 5 megapixel ImageSense camera with HD video recording, NFC, and more. Unfortunately this one won’t debut with Jelly Bean, but AT&T promises it’s in line for the upgrade (along with a promise for the original HTC One X) at some point down the line. Read on for full press details.

Running on AT&T’s 4G LTE network, the HTC One VX delivers an amazing camera and authentic sound experience in a more compact size for even greater mass-market appeal.
HTC One X+
The HTC One X+ will be the first smartphone to combine Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) with the 1.7 GHz NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 ‘4-PLUS-1™’ quad-core processor with a battery saving fifth core. The HTC One X+ will also be the first smartphone in the U.S. to feature performance improvements and benefits of HTC Sense 4+. Continuing with the iconic HTC One X design, this powerhouse now comes in an exclusive Carbon Black finish and adds increased performance, longer battery life and 64 GB of internal storage.
Improved battery life comes from a larger 2100 mAh battery and the smartphone’s ability to allow the four cores to operate in the most efficient way possible with each core independently and automatically enabled and disabled based on workload. The single battery-saver fifth core (or companion core) handles low-power tasks like active standby, email, browsing, music and video. Intelligent Power Saver settings further optimize battery life, giving you all the power you need, when you need it.
The HTC One X+ has a 4.7-inch, 720p HD screen and builds on the camera of the HTC One X. It has a superfast auto-focus and integrates the HTC ImageChip which reduces noise, removes color bias and enhances the overall picture quality. The 64 GB of internal memory is non-partitioned to store more high quality photos, video, music, movies and apps however the user wants.
The HTC One series set the standard for imaging with HTC VideoPic™ (the ability to take still photos and shoot videos at the same time), one-press Continuous Shooting and better quality images in low light environments. The HTC One X+ combines the outstanding camera capabilities of its predecessor** with a series of intelligent features powered by HTC Sense 4+. The new Auto Portrait mode on the front camera helps you capture high quality photos by detecting the human face at various angles. Sightseeing mode makes it easier to capture the moment, as only one touch of the power button bypasses the lock screen and launches directly into camera mode. Additionally, two new ways to view photos and videos in the gallery allow you to display albums according to when or where they were taken.

The stylish new smartphone comes in a crisp white color finish with silver accents and features a 4.5-inch qHD display protected with scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass which aids in durability and reduces light reflection.
