HTC One X+ could be set for launch

The original HTC One X was revealed in the first half of this year and reviewed very positively by us not long after. Since then, it has had a bit of an up and down time, not least with the 'grip of death' problems for some users. So would the idea of a sequel so soon after that launch be out of the question?

It seems not, as a phone said to be the HTC One X+ has been undergoing benchmark tests, which indicates a launch could be imminent. Perhaps with the Samsung Galaxy S III hitting the heights in sales and a new iPhone imminent, HTC thinks it needs to take action.

The phone tested is officially called the HTC PM63100 but is thought to be the HTC One X+. It has been benchmarked using NenaMark2. Those tests tell us that the processor is being upgraded from a 1.5GHz quad-core processor to 1.7GHz – and not a lot else.

But the phone is also said to be coming with the Jelly Bean version of Android out of the box, which is equally big news. With one eye on those reception problems of the original, we wouldn't be surprised to see a touch of redesigning too, although it's not clear as yet whether the overall look of the phone will be the same as the original pictured here.

September is the alleged launch date for the US market, with no news as yet about UK availability. A strong possibility for an IFA launch, we suspect.
