AT&T also confirmed it will have the Windows Phone 8X from HTC in November.

Earlier Thursday, the carrier announced it will carry the Nokia Lumia 920 exclusively and the Lumia 820. Both are also Windows Phone 8 devices, and will be available in November, as part of AT&T's holiday lineup. No pricing was announced for any of the Windows Phones.

All three of the HTC smartphones, and the two from Nokia, will run over AT&T's 4G LTE network, which is expected to reach 100 cities by year's end.

HTC unveiled the One X+ on Tuesday, noting its 1.7 GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 AP37 processor and 64 GB of integrated storage. Nvidia said it will be the first time its quad-core processor has been used in an LTE phone, which provides faster speeds for downloads, interactive gaming and video chat. It has a 4.7-in. HD display, and an 8 megapixel camera. It will run the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) mobile operating system.

Less is known about HTC's One VX, called an "affordable" Android Ice Cream Sandwich device from HTC. It runs a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S 4 processor and has a 4.5-in. display. Its case also has more rounded corners than the One X+.

HTC said the One VX is planned to be upgraded to Jelly Bean.
