AT&T just informed us that the HTC One X+, the follow up to the One X, is set to ship November 16th, with preorders commencing on November 13th for $199.99 after a 2-year contract signing.

The HTC One X+ is said to be the first smartphone to combine Android 4.1 with the 1.7 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 ‘4-PLUS-1’ quad-core processor with a battery saving fifth core.  The fifth core is designed to handle rudimentary tasks, such as email, video, browsing, and standby.  That said, the other cores can shut down indepenently, further enhancing the 2,100mAh battery and providing was is a purported 50% longer battery life than the HTC One X.

As it happens, it will also be the first HTC handset to include HTC Sense 4+ and an exclusive Carbon Black finish.  Other features include 64GB of built-in storage, a 4.7-inch Supre LCD 2 720p capable screen, an 8-megapixel sensor with a F2.0 aperture that can capture full HD video, 1GB of RAM, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, and a weight of 135g with the battery installed.

AT&T will also sell the budget friendly HTC One VX for $49.99 with a 2-year agreement.   Despite its rather cheap price tag, this phone boasts a 4.5-inch qHD display covered by Corning’s Gorilla Glass, and measuring 9.19mm thin.  It too uses HTC ImageChip technology, though it’s relegated to a 5-megapixel camera.  Surprisingly, it will ship with Android 4.0, with no word on when the upgrade as to when 4.1 or 4.2 will arrive.
