It doesn’t feel like all that long ago we were all waiting with bated breath for news of the HTX One X release date – and indeed it wasn’t. However, sufficient time has passed for the One X to effectively become yesterday’s news in such a fast-paced Smartphone world – the perfect time to release the HTC One X + and add a little extra cherry (Or Jelly Bean, for that matter!) to an already rather sweet cake.
While the HTC One X + isn’t what you’d call groundbreaking, it has been noticeably refreshed for an overall souped-up user experience. The processor for example has been upgraded to a bewilderingly fast 1.7GHz, its NVIDIA Tegra 3 graphics chip is to die for, 8-megapixels to the rear serves up more than enough camera grunt and 64GB of onboard storage won’t leave anyone complaining.
All this aside however, chances are the most appealing and fun point of all for most will be its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS – known to make the difference between a Smartphone that ships in decent numbers and one that literally flies off the shelves.
Meanwhile, the unveiling of the HTC Butterfly has paved the way for many a rumor as to HTC’s Android flagship for 2013, which according to those in the know (so they say) will arrive in the form of the HTC M7 release date before the end of March next year. Details as to specs and features are thin on the ground, but following 2013 standards the HTC M7 is expected to pack a quad-core processor closer to 2GHz a least 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch Full HD display and a one-piece aluminum casing.
Expectations are apparently high for the M7 – or whatever name it eventually arrives with – as HTC has reportedly ordered a good 5 million units-worth of components for assembly in early 2013 alone.
