HTC One X+
The HTC One X+ will be the first smartphone to combine Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) with the 1.7 GHz NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 ‘4-PLUS-1™’ quad-core processor with a battery saving fifth core. The HTC One X+ will also be the first smartphone in the U.S. to feature performance improvements and benefits of HTC Sense 4+. Continuing with the iconic HTC One X design, this powerhouse now comes in an exclusive Carbon Black finish and adds increased performance, longer battery life and 64 GB of internal storage.
Improved battery life comes from a larger 2100 mAh battery and the smartphone’s ability to allow the four cores to operate in the most efficient way possible with each core independently and automatically enabled and disabled based on workload. The single battery-saver fifth core (or companion core) handles low-power tasks like active standby, email, browsing, music and video. Intelligent Power Saver settings further optimize battery life, giving you all the power you need, when you need it.
The HTC One X+ has a 4.7-inch, 720p HD screen and builds on the camera of the HTC One X. It has a superfast auto-focus and integrates the HTC ImageChip which reduces noise, removes color bias and enhances the overall picture quality. The 64 GB of internal memory is non-partitioned to store more high quality photos, video, music, movies and apps however the user wants.
The HTC One series set the standard for imaging with HTC VideoPic™ (the ability to take still photos and shoot videos at the same time), one-press Continuous Shooting and better quality images in low light environments. The HTC One X+ combines the outstanding camera capabilities of its predecessor** with a series of intelligent features powered by HTC Sense 4+. The new Auto Portrait mode on the front camera helps you capture high quality photos by detecting the human face at various angles. Sightseeing mode makes it easier to capture the moment, as only one touch of the power button bypasses the lock screen and launches directly into camera mode. Additionally, two new ways to view photos and videos in the gallery allow you to display albums according to when or where they were taken.

HTC One VX
Exclusive to AT&T, the HTC One VX sports one of the slimmest unibody form factors in the industry at just 9.19 millimeters thin, making it easy to hold and navigate at a size that fits easily in anyone’s hand. The stylish new smartphone comes in a crisp white color finish with silver accents and features a 4.5-inch qHD display protected with scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass which aids in durability and reduces light reflection.
Featuring advanced imaging capabilities, the HTC One VX includes a 1080p HD video recorder and 5-megapixel camera with HTC ImageSense™, improving every part of the camera and integrating HTC ImageChip. Within seconds, customers can launch the camera from the lock screen and enjoy one-press continuous shooting at four frames per second. The One VX also features HTC VideoPic. The HTC One VX is NFC-ready for the seamless, wireless sharing of playlists, Web sites, contacts and more with other NFC-enabled devices.
The HTC One VX runs HTC Sense 4 with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). In the future, the original HTC One X and HTC One VX are planned to be upgraded to HTC Sense 4+ with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), which will include the improved camera capabilities and new Tap and Go function currently available on the HTC One X+, which allows customers to connect the phone and music to Beats speakers’ when tapped them together***. The HTC One VX comes equipped with a microSD card slot for up to 32 GB of additional storage space.
