T-Mobile customers may lack 4G LTE, but if the latest rumors are right, it'll be the first U.S. carrier to offer its customers a quad-core smartphone.
The HTC One X+, suggests TMoNews, will carry Nvidia's Tegra 3 quad-core processor, the same chipset used in international versions of the HTC One.
The U.S. versions of the HTC One family of phone -- which includes T-Mobile's HTC One S, AT&T's HTC One X, Sprint's HTC Evo 4G LTE, and U.S. Cellular's HTC One V -- come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, its fastest yet, in part because the chip incorporates an LTE radio out of the box.
T-Mobile's HSPA+ network doesn't use 4G LTE technology yet, though the carrier is planning to add LTE alongside its HSPA+ network.
The HTC One X+ would likely carry the One X's 4.7-inch 1,280x720-pixel HD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD playback and capture, and 16GB internal memory. Fingers crossed it comes with an expandable microSD card slot as well.
