AT&T Is Getting HTC Windows Phone 8X, One X+ And One VX

Whoa. AT&T today nabbed three upcoming smartphones from HTC, namely the Windows Phone 8X, the One X+ which was announced today, and the One VX. also announced today.

HTC Windows Phone 8X

The 8X is the Taiwanese’ hottest new Windows Phone, running the latest version of the OS, 8. Announced earlier this month, it comes with a 4.3″ HD display and a dual core Krait processor. The 8X is coming this November, with the confirmation coming from the carrier itself, today. Note that it’s also coming to Verizon and T-Mobile.

Moving on, AT&T also announced two new devices today in the form of One X+ and the One VX. Mind has been officially blown away, but here’s the deal – the One X+ comes with a quad core Tegra 3 chip, clocked in at 1.7 GHz. There’s a change in the colour scheme, and HTC has done itself some favour by launching it with Jelly Bean and a new version of Sense 4, which it calls Sense 4+.

HTC One X+

  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Sense 4+ on top
  • 4.7″ Super LCD2 display, HD resolution 1280×720 pixels
  • 1.7 Ghz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processor, ULP GeForce GPU
  • 8 MP main camera, LED flash, 1080p video recording; front facing 1.6 MP camera
  • 1 GB RAM, 32 GB / 64 GB internal memory, not expandable
  • Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, HSPA, GPS
  • 2100 mAh battery

It’s like what the One X should have been in the first place, but well. The best takeaway from this is that the One X+ comes with Jelly Bean and a 2100 mAh battery.

AT&T also announced a new mid-range device, going by the name One VX (always knew the awesome One series would be ruined by the carriers, one day. Here’s that day.) But apart from ruining the brand, the One VX does seem pretty decent on paper.


  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Sense 4 on top
  • 4.5″ Super LCD2 display, qHD resolution 960×540 pixels
  • 1.2 Ghz dual core Snapdragon S4 Krait processor
  • 5 MP main camera, LED flash, 1080p video recording; front facing VGA camera
  • 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory, expandable
  • Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, HSPA, GPS

The presser says that the devices will be released in the coming months, but there’s no real date as of now. Perhaps November? Might be. No information on the pricing of the three devices was released, as usual, so let’s wait and watch.

Are you interested in any of the three devices?
