HTC One X, S and V Launching on April 2
HTC has chosen to launch three of its latest devices – the One X, the One S and the One V in many different markets simultaneously. On April 2, the trio will launch in most major European markets, including UK, as well some selected Asian countries. The prices will be €599 for the flagship One X, €499 for the One S and €299 for the budget One V. The first two are not what you’d call cheap, so you might want to wait a bit to see what kind of deals our carriers will come up with. In any case, the competition is going to get much tougher in a few days.
The range-topping One X has everything you might expect from a modern smartphone. The huge 4.7-inch screen has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, inside there’s a quad-core chip clocked at 1.5 Ghz and on the back you’ll find a 8-megapixel camera. The phone also features NFC and Bluetooth v4.0. Just like the other two, the One X runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The One S is supposed to be a mid-range device, yet its specs say otherwise. Its screen measures at 4.3 inches and has 540 x 960 pixels, the same 8-megapixel camera is here, and a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor is at the core. The only main criticism of the One S is the limited 16 GB internal memory, with no possibility to expand via a microSD card slot.
The last one in the trio is the relatively affordable One V. This one does have a microSD card slot, and 4 gigs of internal storage. The screen has a 480 x 800 pixel resolution and a diagonal of 4 inches. The processor has just one core and RAM is 512 MB, so don’t expect ICS to run as fast as on the more expensive models in the range.
