HTC is giving its flagship HTC One X smartphone a spec bump. The HTC One X+ will hit Europe and Asia starting in October. It features a faster processor, more storage, and longer battery life than its predecessor.

A North American release date hasn’t yet been announced. But HTC is also promising to roll out an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software with the new Sense 4+ user interface for existing HTC One S and One X smartphones starting this month.

HTC One X+

The HTC One X+ features a 1.7 GHz NVIDiA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 64GB of storage, and a 2100mAh battery.

The HTC One X, by comparison, had a 1800mAh battery and a 1.5 GHz Tegra 3 processor. HTC is also stepping up the graphics processor from 416 MHz to 520 MHz.

Other improvements include a 1.6MP front-facing camera (the original had a 1.3MP camera), and the latest version of HTC Sense based on Android 4.1.

Features that remain unchanged include the 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, and 4.7 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display.

While the NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip doesn’t include support for 4G LTE mobile broadband networks, HTC will offer a model with a Qualcomm chip for LTE support.

HTC currently offers two models of the HTC One X. The international model has a Tegra 3 chip, while in the US and Canada the company sells the HTC One XL with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core processor and support for 4G LTE on the AT&T and Rogers networks. It sounds like the One X+ with Tegra 3 may work just fine on those networks… but we won’t know for certain until HTC announces US availability for its new phone.

Update: CNET reports that AT&T will be the exclusive US carrier for the HTC One X+, and it will indeed offer the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra model.
