The HTC One X upgrade has officially been released today by O2 on their full range of contract deals, interestingly the new HTC One X+ does not ship with a charger to reduce waste, O2′s take on this is that “70% of people already have their own USB charger” and that there are “100 million unused chargers in the UK”.
O2′s HTC One X+ deals already offer the phone free of charge on tariffs of £34 line rental and above, for this price you get 900 minutes of calls, unlimited text messages and 100MB of data which can be upgraded to 1GB for an extra £6 per month, O2 also offer a number of Bolt-Ons to the deal including Family & Data Abroad to save even further.
The new One X+ upgrades HTC’s original flagship HTC One X with an even faster 1.7GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM, a bigger battery at 2100 mAh and a front facing 1.6 mega pixel with 720p HD support, the phone also ships with the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system ‘out of the box’ and offers a massive 64GB of flash memory plus a further 25GB free for 2 years from DropBox.
The overall look of the phone is very similar to that of the One X except that the HTC One X Plus integrates some new red accents to both tell it apart and advertise the fact that it has the wonderful Beats Audio technology inside, all of the usual Android features are still there including connections via Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, Bluetooth and 3.5G support – for those looking for 4G speeds you’ll need to opt for the new 4G enabled HTC One XL LTE.
This new flagship device is only currently available in a black colour scheme but as with most of HTC’s product range a white variant is expected soon.
