AT&T Snaps Up The HTC One X+ And One VX, Lines Up Launches “In The Coming Months”

onex+onevx

As it turns out today is a good day to be an HTC fan — the Taiwanese company announced earlier this morning that the revamped HTC One X+ was in fact a real thing, and now AT&T has just confirmed that it will carry that new flagship device later this year.

Interestingly, the One X+ won’t be alone either, as AT&T has also announced that it will sell the lower-end HTC One VX alongside it when they both launch in the “coming months.”

I won’t spend too much time rehashing the One X+ — aside from its 1.7GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor and 64GB of internal storage, the Jelly Bean-powered phone is largely the same device that AT&T already launched earlier this year. What’s arguably more notable here is the addition of a previously-unknown One series handset to AT&T’s roster.

THe One VX features a 4.5-inch display running at 960×540 (coated in Gorilla Glass, naturally), as well as a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel camera, NFC, and 8GB of internal storage. The spec sheet may not be a world-changer, but it’s got a solid chance at selling well if AT&T prices it accordingly. That said, the One VX has two distinct disadvantages when compared to the recently-refreshed One X+ — it doesn’t run the same up-to-date version of Android that its bigger brother does (though Ice Cream Sandwich still has plenty of life left in it), and at 9.19mm it’s a thicker device to boot.

Of course, that didn’t stop HTC from touting it as one of the “slimmest unibody form factors” in the industry — you’ve just got to love that spin.

There’s no official word on pricing yet, but The Verge has learned that AT&T will continue to sell the original One X at a lower price point rather that discontinue it entirely. Naturally, the two new models will slot in above and below that price point (currently $99), but we’ll likely have to wait a bit before the official price tags are released.

Oh, and one bit of parting bad news for T-Mobile customers — AT&T refers to the One X+ as an exclusive in its release, so the dream of a fully fleshed-out HTC One family riding on T-Mo’s airwaves may remain just that.

HTC Confirms Wi-Fi Connection Issues In Some Tegra 3-Powered One Xs

onex8

I can’t imagine most U.S. HTC fans were glad to hear that AT&T’s version of the One X would go without the quad-core Tegra 3 chipset, but now it seems as though they’ve dodged quite the bullet.

Earlier today, HTC acknowledged that some of their Tegra-packing flagship devices were having issues with latching onto a Wi-Fi signal and announced that they’ve put together a fix for it.

Sadly, it’ll take more than a software update to remedy the issue (and besides, they already tried that). As the phone buffs on the xda-developer forums surmised, the issue in question was apparently due to a loose connection between the device and its Wi-Fi antenna — a hypothesis they tested by squeezing the device and watching the signal indicator light up.

According to a statement released by HTC, their fix “strengthens the area of the phone around the WiFi antennae connection points.” They’ll be implementing the hardware fix in their production process going forward, though that doesn’t help people who have already purchased their One Xs much. For those affected users, the best bet is to call HTC’s customer service line where a representative will verify that the device is question is faulty and will walk users through the replacement process.

The company has remained tight-lipped about how many devices are affected — their official statement refers to “isolated reports” — though hopefully not too many people are having to deal with some sketchy Wi-Fi. After all, HTC isn’t quite through their rough patch just yet, and a flaw in their flagship Android device may not bode well for their precious brand image.
