HTC announces One X+ Jelly Bean smartphone

HTC One X and One S to get Jelly Bean this month

HTC One X+

HTC has revealed its One X+ smartphone just days after it was leaked by O2.

The Android Jelly Bean device has been revealed as a new improved version of the HTC One X. As well as the latest version of Android it will come with the HTC Sense 4+ interface. Visit Group test: what's the best smartphone?

"We are taking the HTC One X to a new level with the introduction of the new HTC One X+," said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC. "Our customers will have super-fast browsing, an even better camera and more immersive entertainment with Beats Audio."

The smartphone features a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, 64GB of internal storage and a 4.7in screen. HTC said the One X+ is 27 percent faster than the original and up to an extra 4.7 hours talk time thanks to a larger battery.

HTC Sense 4+ includes Beats Audio music enhancement, Watch 2.0 for movies and camera improvements like self-portrait mode and Sightseeing mode which bypasses the lock screen to get the camera app up quicker.

It's possible that this is the flagship HTC device O2 was referring to when it said it would sell one without a charger.

The HTC One X+ will go on sale in Europe this month, the firm said. Clove has the device up for pre-order with a price of £474 and a release date of 22 October. The HTC One X and One S will get the Android Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 4+ update this month too.
