The HTC One X+, an update to the HTC One X is here. The HTC One X+ has the Samsung Galaxy S III in its sights.
HTC has improved the HTC One X+ by giving it a larger 2100 mAh battery, which is 300 mAh larger than the 1800 mAh in the HTC One X. This matches the battery on the Samsung Galaxy S III. To make up for a absence of MicroSD card slot, HTC now offer two models of the HTC One X+. One with 32 GB like the older One X, and the other with 64 GB.
HTC has also upped the performance of the HTC One X+ by increasing the speed of the processor to 1.7 GHz from 1.5 GHz.
The HTC One X+ also comes with a new red accented theme (like the Sensation XE) and comes out of the box with Android 4.1.1, Jelly Bean.
The official price of the HTC One X+ is a hefty Php32,800, but at CMK Cellphones it is selling for just Php27,900 for the 64 GB model. This is just Php2.400 higher than the Php25,500 selling price of the older One X. With a larger battery, more storage and a faster processor, the One X+ looks like a better deal the the One X.
The Samsung Galaxy S III has now gone down in price, so it costs just as much as a Galaxy S III. What do you think? Will the One X+ be able to take some of the Galaxy S III's sales?
