HTC has unveiled its first 4G phone for the UK, in the shape of a shiny reswizzle of its flagship One X handset.
Dubbed the HTC One X+, the Taiwanese gadget-purveyor’s handset improves on its predecessor chiefly with the addition of LTE next-generation network technology. That means it’s capable of speeds up to five times faster than current-gen 3G phones.
Mindful of how 4G tears through battery-life, HTC has also given the One X+ a longer-lasting 2,100mAh battery that it claims offers up to 50 per cent more talk time.
Elsewhere, the handset rocks the latest Jelly Bean version of Android (garnished with the similarly new SenseTM 4+ edition of HTC’s custom skin), a 1.7GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 AP37 processor and a rather whopping 64GB of internal storage.
In keeping with other phones in the One range, Beats Audio technology is on board, as well as the new Tap and Go feature that allows users to disconnect their phone and play their music through Beats speakers by tapping them with the handset.
The One X+ is set to land later this month. Price points aren’t confirmed yet, but expect it to pick it up from about £35 per month.
HTC has since announced that the One X+ will not support 4G in the UK.
