Much to NVIDIA’s angst, there haven’t been too many Tegra-based phones released in the US, and whenever I’ve questioned the company about when things could pick up, I’ve never given much of a confident answer. Well, with HTC’s latest announcement, we might just see things begin to pick up on the NVIDIA front, and what a way to greet the holiday season than with a powerhouse like this, the One X+.
HTC claims that the SoC in the One X+ is 67% faster than that of the original One X, which is a significant improvement to say the least. Powering it is a Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.7GHz – that’s higher than any other phone out there, and to my immediate knowledge, tablets as well (although those clocked at 1.6GHz are boostable to 1.7GHz).
As a high-end model, HTC is really pushing hard with the specs here. 16GB or 32GB of storage not sufficient for you? How about 64GB? And in regards to the battery, HTC claims the phone will last 50% longer.
The best part about the phone is that it simply exists in the US, so it’ll be interesting to see the reviews trickle out to see if it holds a candle to the other market-leading performance phones such as the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III. It’s sure shaping up to be a fun holiday season phone-wise.
