Earlier today HTC made the One X+ official, which includes a faster Tegra 3 SoC, 64 GB of NAND for the AT&T version, LTE from an MDM9215, improved 1.6 MP front facing camera, and a larger internal battery. The One X+ with LTE will be headed to AT&T in the coming months in the same form as the international One X+ with LTE.

Alongside that availability note however is the announcement of another handset, the HTC One VX, which will be exclusive to AT&T and looks like it sits somewhere between the One S and One V. The One VX includes a Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8930 SoC, which is 1.2 GHz dual core Krait and includes Adreno 305 graphics. MSM8930 includes the same air interface support as MSM8960 as well (UE Category 3 LTE, up to DC-HSPA+, and 1x/EVDO). In addition the One VX includes what looks like the One V's camera system, the same 5 MP CMOS sensor with BSI, F/2.0 optics with 28mm focal length, and HTC ImageChip. The One VX also includes something we haven't seen on a lot of HTC's phones lately - microSD expansion. Display is a qHD (960 x 540) 4.5" Super LCD.

The One VX will launch on AT&T initially running Android 4.0.4 and later get updated along with the One X to Android 4.1 and Sense 4+. The way the One VX is positioned it will likely launch at a price significantly below the One X+. 

The HTC One X+ and One VX announcement is a bit scant on availability details for the two devices, noting that both will be available "in the coming months." Interestingly enough the announcement notes the One 8X will be available in November.

    I wish they launch the VX in India. We need to have a Qualcomm S4 phone in India.

    Do you think LG/Google may sell the rumored Nexus 4 in India? Samsung didn't sell their GNexus here and I'm afraid LG may follow the same path.

    That explains the $100 off for the One X right now

    HTC is dropping the ball lately. Tegra 3? Not even Tegra 3+? And S4 Plus when it should be S4 Pro?
  • kyuu - Tuesday, October 2, 2012 - link

    Pretty sure the One VX is meant to be an intermediate level phone, not top-of-the-line. That would explain their use of the S4 Plus, along with the mere 8GB of NAND, poorer cameras, smaller and lower resolution screen, and smaller battery.

    Also, as far as I know, there aren't any phones that use the S4 Pro, presumably because it's not ready?
  • ViRGE - Tuesday, October 2, 2012 - link

    Agreed. Why would anyone possibly want a Tegra over a Krait right now? That seems like a pretty significant regression.

    need memory slot or i'm not even interested in those model

    This seems like an incremental upgrade over the HTC Vivid.

    I understand that this is a midrange targetted phone, but HTC really needs to find a more compelling reason to go with this over a Vivid except Sense 4. The upgrade to JB will be nice, but I fail to see how most consumers will prefer a more expensive phone with no outward improvements over a free (On AT&T at least) phone with all the same check boxes filled out on the spec sheet.

    The One X+ is an incremental upgrade for the One X, not the Vivid. It's not a mid-range phone. It's a flagship phone. Larger screen, faster processor and all the features available today. Now, the One VX would be similar to the Vivid, just a year older and slightly better specs and updated.

    I was talking about the VX. Why would you think I was referring to the One X?
