AT&T to get three new HTC smartphones
AT&T customers, you may want to wait just a bit longer before you upgrade. On Thursday the carrier announced that it will carry HTC's latest smartphones, the HTC One X+, the One VX, and the Windows Phone 8X. The HTC Windows Phone 8X will be available in November, with the other two phones arriving in the coming months.
HTC introduced the One X+ earlier this week, and it's the successor to the HTC One X that debuted on AT&T earlier this year. I praised the One X's design, and it looks like I'll most likely end up saying the same for the One X+. The phone has a large 4.7-inch 720p display and 64GB of internal storage, and it'll ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The One X+ will be one of the first phones with the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor to show up in the United States.
HTC has budget-conscious buyers in mind with its other Android phone, the One VX. The phone comes with a 5-megapixel camera and a 4.5-inch display, and is just 0.36 inches thick. The One VX has a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor inside, and it'll come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Our Melissa J. Perenson got some hands on time with the 8X back in September, and found the device to be very elegant. That phone has a 4.3-inch display, a dual-core processor, and 16GB of onboard storage. Like the Nokia Lumia 920, the HTC 8X will be one of the very first phones to come with Microsoft's Windows Phone 8.
AT&T didn't give any pricing information or exact release dates for any of these good looking handsets, but we'll keep you updated as we hear more.
