The One X+ is a step change from the original, but like the Sensation to XE transition, this is more incremental than complete overhaul.With One X -- which dropped the global model's quad-core Tegra 3 with 32GB of storage in favor of a dual-core Snapdragon S4 with only 16GB of flash for the sake of LTE -- One X+ gives you the best of both worlds: NVIDIA's 1.7GHz quad-core Tegra 3 AP37 SoC combined with Qualcomm's MDM9215m GSM/EDGE/UMTS/HSPA+/LTE radio plus 32 or 64GB of built-in storage.

The main change visually is the new matte finish, which, well, seems to make the black a little bit darker.On top of that are new red accents adorning the softkeys on the front and around the camera - once again, very reminiscent of the HTC Sensation XE with its Beats Audio branding.

The HTC One X+ is likely a contender for the best Android smartphone in the world, but only if HTC can step up its marketing efforts to make the handset more appealing to customers. HTC has long had a reputation of making nerd-friendly smartphones, which may not be as attractive to more mainstream user that are more interested in Samsung and Apple devices.

The handset will be available around this November, and will face stiff competition from the LG Optimus G, as well as the slew of Windows Phone 8 products.
