HTC debuted the HTC One X at Mobile World Congress in February, and the Taiwanese manufacturer has decided to release a refreshed version of its flagship Android phone just nine months later. HTC officially announced that it will release the HTC One X+, a new entrant to the One series that upgrades the software and hardware performance. The One X+ has mostly the same form factor and with a 4.7-inch display, but it has boosted the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor to 1.7 GHz. The AP37 Tegra 3 version of the processor used in the HTC One X+ is 67 percent faster than the original One X.

The HTC One X+ has raised the battery to 2,100 mAh, which offers an additional 6 hours of talk time when comparing the LTE versions of the phone. It also has 64GB of internal storage, an 8 megapixel rear camera, and Beats Audio integration. There's even a new Tap and Go feature that connects the phone to Beats speakers.

The biggest upgrade made to the One X+ is the inclusion of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the first implementation of HTC's take on Jelly Bean. The phone uses Sense 4+, a retooled version of HTC Sense UI based on Android 4.1. It features a new video hub for seeing all video content in one place, a new guide to assist in the first time setup process, the ability to alter settings on the web, and a Self Portrait mode that auto-enhances photos taken with the front-facing camera.

HTC will begin offering the HTC One X+ in Europe and North Asia in October, followed by a South Asian release in November. North American release details will be announced at a later date, but previous rumors suggest that T-Mobile will offer the phone in the United States.
