The HTC One X+ is still very likely to land before the year is up. NVIDIA did say they would have a quad-core LTE device in the U.S. market before the end of 2012. They best hurry things up though, there isn’t much time left before the year ends.
Will a quad-core toting variant of the One X be a good thing though? The original One X hasn’t been out for very long and HTC said they were going to slow down their production of devices that had minor spec improvements or changes. With LG looming on the horizon with a quad-core phone, the Note II right around the corner and a Galaxy S III will quad-core and LTE being talked about, HTC has no choice but to up their game to stay competitive. The end of the year is looking like a quad-core barrage. Hopefully developers can keep up and optimize their apps and games for us.
