AT&T today finally confirmed the release date for its upcoming quad-core powered HTC One X+ saying that the device will go up for pre-order tomorrow with a release date coming just a few days later.
The carrier announced its plans today saying that the long-awaited HTC One X+ will go on sale starting November 16th, just a few days after AT&T released the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
AT&T will be charging the expected $199.99 on-contract price for the HTC One X+ which will come at the cost of a new two year agreement with the carrier. That price comes without any sort a mail-in rebate.
The HTC One X+ will be AT&T’s latest edition in the HTC One Series of smartphones and it will replace the HTC One X, one of AT&T’s most popular Android phones over the course of 2012.
It features several upgrades over its predecessor including a faster processor, a larger battery, more on board memory, and a new operating system. Specifically, the HTC One X+ will bring a 1.7GHz Tegra 3 quad-core processor to the table and it will be pairing that with 64GB of storage space and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, an update that the HTC One X itself is still waiting on.
As AT&T points out, it will be the first device to combined Jelly Bean, 4G LTE and the Tegra 3.
Additionally, the battery on the HTC One X+ is bigger than the one found on the original. The HTC One X+ will offer up a 2100 mAh battery which should harness the powerful hardware efficiently while managing the 4G LTE data connection. Everything else on the HTC One X+ will be the same. That means a gorgeous 4.7-inch HD display and an extremely well-built design.
Those, combined with its affordable $199.99 price tag, make the HTC One X+ a device that warrants consideration from those looking for a new powerful Android smartphone this holiday season.
