HTC’s newest flagship phone, the HTC One X will be one of the smartphones announced at this year’s MWC. Coming with a quad-core 1.5 GHz Tegra 3 processor from Nvidia, an 8MP camera, and a 4.7″ Super LCD 2 display, it’s one of the most anticipated upcoming HTC smartphones in a while. Gizmodo’s Brent Rose was lucky enough to get to see a preview of the HTC One X in person and summarizes his experience in his article:
Hands On Preview of Upcoming HTC Smartphone – HTC One X
HTC has been listening to feedback and taking notes lately. People were confused with the gagillion phones they launched in the last couple of years, so they recently announced they’re paring back. Today, we’re seeing what that means. HTC is introducing the “One” series. It’s basically what the “Galaxy” series is to Samsung. The One X is the series’ flagship, and from the limitad amount of time I got to spend with it, I was very impressed.
Let’s start with what’s on the outside. The 720p 4.7-inch Super LCD2 is among the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. Colors were vibrant and bright and it looked almost matte, like a high-tech magazine. Viewing angles were unbelievable and it worked well in bright sunlight. At 312ppi (pixels per inch) it isn’t quite as jam-packed as the iPhone 4S’s 330ppi or the HTC Rezound’s 342ppi, but it’s gore-juss.
The body is made out of a machined polycarbonate which makes it light, but it feels very strong and rigid. The back of it has a sweet curve that makes it feel really good in your hand, but it still sits flat on a table top with no wobble. This is due to the little camera hump.
Given that HTC already has a working demo version of their phone, it should be released in the near future and we are looking forward to it so we can find out exactly how one of the most promising upcoming HTC smartphones will be. Are you looking forward to it as well?
