Quad-core HTC One X Revealed
HTC has revealed quite a few interesting devices at the Mobile World Congress, but one of them is of particular interest. Of course, the device is question is HTC One X, the latest flagship of the Taiwanese company that used to be known under the codenames Edge and Endeavor. As expected, the One X features a quad-core Tegra 3 CPU clocked at 1.5 Ghz and 1 GB of RAM, so just as you would expect the device literally flies. It’ll probably take years for applications to appear that can put a real strain on the handset. The rest of the specs are astounding as well. The One X is equipped with a 4.7-inch Super IPS LCD2 screen with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels. The main camera is a 8-megapixel unit that can shoot 1080p videos at 30 fps and capture still image while doing it, which is a good illustration of the benefits that a quad-core architecture comes with. There’s a secondary 1.3-megapixel camera as well.
The One X runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and utilizes HTC’s latest Sense 4.0 UI, which seems to be better optimized than the preceding versions. The phone also features NFC, Bluetooth v3.0 and microUSB v2.0. Strangely there’s no microSD card slot, but 32 gigs of internal memory should be enough anyway. The 1800 mAh battery should ensure that the phone doesn’t die in the middle of the day, although we still don’t know how power-hungry the new chip is. Thankfully, HTC managed to keep the One X light (about 130 grams) and just 9.3 mm thick.
