Tech sites had been abuzz for the past few weeks, reporting that HTC will be launching an update to its flagship Android handset, the HTC One X. \u00a0\u00a0Reports mentioned the name HTC One X+ from the start and it turns out, the rumors had basis after all. HTC just made the One X+ official.\u00a0 It is not any different from the original HTC One X in terms of design.\u00a0 From the outside, therefore, it appears that you are looking at the same handset.\u00a0 The changes, however, are all found inside the device.\u00a0 The HTC One X+, as the + in the name implies, is after all an upgrade.\u00a0 So what has changed? For starters, the 4.7-inch HTC One X+ is faster as it now uses a Tegra3 CPU clocked at 1.7GHz.\u00a0 It also has a bigger 2,100mAh battery so usage should improve somehow. \u00a0The next noticeable change is in storage capacity.\u00a0 The HTC One X+ now packs a 64GB internal storage, which should be more than enough to carry your important photos, videos, MP3s and other files. In terms of software, the HTC One X+ is better as it now runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the newest and brightest of all Android versions. It\u2019s not stock, as you may have expected.\u00a0 HTC loves its Sense skin so much it\u2019s impossible not to get it when you buy an Android HTC handset.\u00a0 The latest version is called Sense 4+ but it should look almost the same as the previous iteration. If you don\u2019t like Sense, there are lots of alternatives on Google Play like the Nova Launcher or Apex Launcher.\u00a0 These third party apps should give your HTC One X+ a \u201cstock\u201d look.\u00a0 Rooting the device is of course the best way to get the real stock experience. HTC introduced a new feature called the "Tap and Go" with Beats-branded speakers.\u00a0 This simply lets users connect to these speakers by tapping the devices together. \u00a0Another improvement is in the camera software.\u00a0 HTC added two new modes which are the Self Portrait mode and the Sightseeing mode which lets users quickly launch of the camera app. The One X+ is scheduled to be released in Europe and North Asia this October and in South Asia in November. \u00a0There's no word yet on pricing. HTC announced during the launch that Android Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 4+ update will be rolling out to HTC One S and HTC One X handsets this October.
