Unlocked HTC One X+ open for pre-orders in the US. Availability date and price on the HTC Android flagship phone are unknown yet
Last week we mentioned about the HTC One X+ being launched in Europe. Now also US Android fans can pre-order factory unlocked HTC One X+ via Expansys. So far, neither the availability date nor the price are unknown so far, but there is no need to worry. The retailer will not charge you until you have agreed to the announced price and definitely you will be among the first ones having the HTC flagship phone loaded with 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 screen, 1.7 GHz quad-core processor, 64GB internal memory and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
To get a bigger picture of the cost, the customers in Europe will have to pay for the HTC One X+ £474, which amounts to $763 for a phone without contract. There are rumors that the price will be $199 on a 2-year service agreement. Therefore you may expect that the newest HTC smartphone won’t be cheap and based on the above the pricing for unlocked HTC One X+ with contract free will be between $599 – $699. Interested?
Together with the HTC One X+, AT&T also announced the HTC One VX. In this case again there is no word on either the official launch date or the price, so you will have to be patient.

If you cannot decide whether to buy now the factory unlocked HTC One X+ now or wait for AT&T version, you should consider one fact. According to the specs provided by the retailer, the unlocked phone will not be compatible with AT&T’s 4G LTE network. Therefore the ultra fast connection for AT&T subscribers may be off limits. We recommend that the customers of other service providers also confirmed with their carrier if the phone will be compatible with their 4G network before purchasing the device. 4G LTE compatible or not, there is no doubt that the HTC One X+ is a great smartphone.
