HTC One X
One of a trio of "HTC One" phones, the HTC One X marks a fresh line-up devices for HTC.. and this time the names don't sound like a brand of condoms.
This is a quad-core smartphone, based around a 1.5GHz processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. This means that the HTC One X should be fast, although quite how fast remains to be seen. Four cores doesn't mean four times the speed, but it should give a boost of 50% or more.
On the outside, the HTC One X has a large 4.7" 720 x 1280 pixel HD display which some people might find a little too large for a smartphone. There's 8 megapixel primary camera with 1080p HD video recording plus a 1.3 megapixel one on the front for video calls. HTC have built some clever trickery into the One X including a dedicated imaging chip and the ability to take a stills photos while recording video.
HTC One X Inside is 32GB of non expandable flash memory, 3.5G and WiFi support, Bluetooth and USB connectivity plus NFC and GPS. The multimedia player is enhanced with Beats Audio technology. There's a large 1800 mAh battery, and despite the fairly big 134 x 70 x 8.9mm size the One X weighs only 130 grams. It doesn't hurt that this is quite a good looking handset as well.
This is an Android 4.0 smartphone with HTC Sense 4 and therefore it can do all those things that other Android phones can do. Except faster. And probably more expensively too. HTC say that the One X should be available from Q2 2012, although no guidance was given on price, our guess is that will retail for €600 or more at launch.
