Exclusive: new HTC One X+ and HTC Accord details revealed
Our source claims that one variant of the HTC Accord features support for Verizon’s LTE network and sports an 8 megapixel camera on the back with a 1.3 megapixel shooter on the front. The camera is said to be very fast and captures “phenomenal photos.” For now, the HTC Accord camera does not feature burst mode or other ImageSense camera capabilities, but that could change before the handset is released. The phone has 16GB of internal storage with no slot for expandable memory, but there is a grayed-out option within settings to switch storage to SD. The HTC device is made primarily of plastic and has a solid feel. The Windows Phone 8 build running on the HTC Accord “feels and runs very smooth “though it “still has some things to clean up” before launch.
The HTC One X+ is still in testing as well. The T-Mobile variant of the HTC One X+ was delayed, but our source could not confirm that it was cancelled. The HTC One X+ looks identical to the original; though there are some reports which claim the device will be slightly thicker to make room for a larger battery. There is a possibility that we’ll see 16 and 32GB models of the device, both of which run on Android 4.1 with HTC Sense 4.5. With HTC Sense 4.5, the UI is not undergoing any major transformations. Instead, HTC is tweaking or adding new features to some of its custom applications. One example of this is the updated gallery app which allows users to pull in images from third party services like Facebook and flickr.
We do not have any details regarding the availability of the HTC one X+ or the HTC accord, but our source has confirmed that neither of the devices will be ready before the middle of October. Hopefully HTC will be able to enlighten us a bit more at next week’s press event.
