HTC finally launched its HTC One X device at its HTC Event 2012. The handset is included in the One series, and sports a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 chipset with 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The device will be firstly launched in the US via AT&T.
The leader in the family, the One X is equipped with Android 4.0 ICS and HTC Sense 4.0 UI. The specs of the model include a 4.7 inch Super LCD display with a resolution of 1280 × 720 protected by special edition Corning Gorilla Glass and a 1.5 GHz quad-core NVIDIA processor. The dimensions of the handset are 134.36×69.9x 9.27mm (5.29x 2.75×0.37 in), while the weight is 130g (4.58 oz). Despite its large dimensions the device weighs rather light due to its polycarbonate body.
The camera of the model is not less impressive. The 8 megapixel shooter comes with a bright f/2.0 lens and the possibility of 1080p video recording. The specs of the camera are rather advanced if compared with the previous models. Finally, it takes less than a minute to launch the feature from the lock screen and also to get the proper focus for a great picture. HTC SenseImage technology will allow taking continuous pics and choosing the best shot. As for the video calls, the users will be able to use the 1.3 megapixel VGA camera.
Another extension faced by the handset deals with Beats Audio. If previously the feature was capable of working with only native apps, then from now on it will also work with third-party products and apps.
The handset uses a 1800 mAh battery, which sounds better than the typical 1650 mAh battery used for most of the previous models. The manufacturer doesn’t provide any data concerning the talk time and stand by mode, but the battery should be great enough to handle the high-end specs of the camera.
Among other novelties we have NFC support with compatibility for Google Wallet and the possibility of using 25GB cloud storage from DropBox for two years.
The HTC One X will come with two major accessories, that is Media Link HD and Bluetooth dongles.
The handset is expected to get launched within 60 days. The price of the unit is still not unveiled. We expect the handset to be one of the most expensive units of the manufacturer.
