The HTC One X+ has been the topic of many a rumor and has undergone a few codenames over that last few months, but it seems like the handset is finally getting close to release as it was seen on the FCC website today.
Seeing the Android smartphone on the FCC website is a big deal, because it is a major part of the release process for any handset. Before any wireless product can be introduced or even used legally within the United States it must first be approved by the Federal Communications Commission.
Info Is Thin
Unfortunately the HTC device reached the FCC website still leaving out many details. Luckily though, the device was identified by the government agency as the PM63100, which has previously shown up on benchmark results as the HTC One X+. The benchmark claimed that the One X+ will feature a Tegra 3 quad-core 1.7GHz processor, which aligns with the earlier rumors we have heard about the One X+.
Previous reports also indicated that this will be a "spec bump" version of the One X. It's supposedly going to be the same size, and the only signifcant change may be the faster processor.
Even considering the lack of information provided, the FCC approval of the handset is a big milestone for those that have been following the device since inception. Now that the device has been approved by the FCC, HTC will begin entering the final stages of production, meaning that the launch of its new handset is not that far away. This doesn't mean that we will we see the device within the next few weeks, but it's a safe bet that this phone will be ready for release sometime before the New Year.
