The Specs: HTC One X Specifications & First Take



HTC has stated that they took a bit of a downturn last year releasing too many devices and adding too much to their once lauded Sense UI. For 2012 they intend to attack the smartphone market with a renewed sense of purpose and with an entirely new line of products with the recently announced HTC One line. The headliner of the new trio is the HTC One X announced at Mobile World Congress as a Tegra 3 sporting quad core beast of a phone meant to put HTC back on the map.

The requirements for being part of the One series are Authentic Sound which is provided by the integrated Beats Audio and an Amazing Camera with HTC's own image software and new ImageChip. In the U.S. however the One X will feature a dual core 1.5Ghz Snapdragon because when the phone was being designed to run on AT&T's LTE network the Tegra 3 did not support LTE though it does now so the U.S. version suffers on the front. It will however ship with the latest version of Sense 4.0 and Ice Cream Sandwich.
