AT&T is rolling out a few more holiday gifts for those looking for new gadgets. HTC is taking a couple more cracks at the smartphone market to try to right their ship, while Samsung is rolling out a 4G-connected digital camera running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The HTC One X+ is simply the One X, plus a little extra. There will now be a 64 GB model available. It’ll also run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box, and will also run the HTC Sense 4+ UI, which is based on Jelly Bean. The battery is also slightly beefed up. The One X+ will be HTC’s new marquee smartphone, having everything that the original One X had. It will arrive in AT&T stores on November 16 for $200 plus a two-year contract. You can pre-order one now.
The HTC One VX is the budget smartphone upgrade, which will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 4. It’ll have a 4.5” qHD Super LCD 2 display, along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 8 GB of storage, and a 5 MP f/2.0 camera capable of recording video in 1080p. It’s a strong effort for a lower-end smartphone, and it will retail for $50 with a two-year contract when it hits AT&T stores on November 16.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera is Samsung’s most prominent attempt at a digital camera. It’s a camera in the front and a smartphone in the back, running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on an edge-to-edge 4.8” touchscreen display. You won’t be able to make calls on it, but everything else on the Android operating system is fair game. In front, there’s a 16 MP lens. It also has 3G/4G connectivity, explaining why it’s coming to AT&T stores. The Samsung Galaxy Camera will also arrive on November 16, for about $500. AT&T is also taking $100 off any Samsung device with the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
