According to his unconfirmed tweet, the faster and more powerful One X will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 4.5 and offer a 1.6GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor. Like the original model, the One X+ should also boast 1GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a 1,800mAh battery.
HTC plans to eschew the "quiet" part of its well-worn tagline, "Quietly Brilliant," as it looks to mount a comeback in the smartphone business.
The Taiwanese company plans to go bolder with its messaging to consumers and the media, relying less on joint marketing campaigns with the carriers and standing more independently to tell the HTC story. It will focus more on its products' advantages and better utilize more social media to recapture some of that loss buzz. It also plans on seeking out influential celebrities and "superfans" with a genuine appreciation for HTC'… Read more

HTC's planned turnaround is going to take a lot longer than expected.
The struggling smartphone company posted a second-quarter profit of NT$7.4 billion, or US$247 million, nearly a 60 percent decline from its year-earlier profit of NT$17.5 billion, or US$584.3 million.

Radio Shack announced today it is cutting the price of AT&T's HTC One X in half to just $99.99 this Sunday, July 29. And as of this afternoon, AT&T has matched that price online.
This new price matches up with similar reports hitting the Internet in the early morning hours.

Chances are good that the deep discount comes as a rebuttal to the Samsung Galaxy S3, which is now on sale for as low as $149.
Looking across the smartphone landscape, I'm seeing a trend in high-end models getting closer to the $100 price point.… Read more

We love a good, clean fight between top smartphones, and the more evenly matched they are, the better. AT&T's HTC One X was our undisputed Android favorite before the Samsung Galaxy S3 blew onto the scene. But the GS3 stands up against the One X.
Both have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as their operating systems, LTE capability, and they even share the same dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, Qualcomm's fastest yet. Each smartphone heavyweight also packs an 8-megapixel camera with extra software muscle and 1080p HD video, and large, HD screens.
