Everything you need to know about the upcoming HTC One X

HTC has some exciting news up its sleeve. The HTC One series is headed to India and is due for official release soon, according to buzz on the net.

Even HTC’s Facebook page is abuzz with news about the one series. The Stalwart of this series – the HTC One X has already made appearances on various online shopping portals is being sold for about Rs. 38,000.

With such a big price tag, HTC is betting big. And why not? HTC One X is an exciting phone for sure. It packs in so many exciting features.

Here, have a look at them:
  • Android v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS
  • 69.9 x 134.36 x 8.9 mm, 130 grams
  • 8MP Primary Camera, 1.3MP Secondary Camera, Full HD Recording
  • Image Sense
  • Huge 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 Touchscreen
  • HD display with resolution of 720 x 1280 Pixels
  • ULP GeForce Graphics
  • 1.5 GHz Quad Core Processor
  • Micro SIM Only
  • Internal Storage Capacity of 32 GB, No MicroSD Slot
  • 1800 mAh Li-Pro battery

As you can see, the One X is a pretty exciting phone. While some of it’s features look inspired from the Sensation XL, the One X has so much that is new.

It not only comes with the Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 4.0. That alone can get you jumping from your seats. But wait.

The HTC One X is designed for guys with happening lives and heavy pockets. It is a phone that will suit on-the-go professionals and gadget-loving geeks.  It is designed to feed on our recent love of big screens. According to us, 4.7-inches is a superb size for a handset.

Not to forget, HTC’s Sense has been doing pretty well (we got our hands on the 3.5 version with the HTC Sensation XL and Rhyme), we hope this HTC takes it a notch up. We have heard that it is kind of minimalistic with less emphasis on text and icons. Also, ICS is something to be excited about. Both of them together is enough to get your heart beating faster. There is also a GeForce GPU on board so graphics are hardly something to worry about.

But the star is, undoubtedly the quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. The One X is HTC’s first quad-core processor phone. It is the first major commercial quad-core phone that India will see. HTC has opted for Nvidia’s Tegra 3 in India and a Snapdragon processor for the U.S.

The handset has picked up from the Sensation XL. In fact, HTC calls it the One XL in the U.S. It has cashed on the good features of the XL. It seems HTC kind of heard all our rants about the XL and decided to give us the One X to delight us. It has got the big screen, the Beats headphones (yay!), the 8-megapixel camera. While HTC hasn’t added any MicroSD storage, it has pumped up the internal storage to 32 GB!

The only thing that worries us is that the battery – 1800 mAh will be able to take the pressure of the phone. Also, unlike the XL, this handset will come with MicroSIM storage, which is kind of a drag.

We aren’t worried about the apps. HTC does take care of its customers that way.

So, that is the HTC One X for you. We are eager to provide you its full review. Have a look at this video while you wait for the official release.
