Once HTC One X gets officially released within the first half of this year, it will effectively supersede HTC Sensation XE as the Taiwanese company's new flagship smartphone.
Clearly top-of-the-line, leaked specifications of HTC One X prove that the handset is capable of going to head to head with flagship releases from other Android phone makers. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS with its Quad Core CPU featuring NVIDIA's Tegra 3 chipset and has 1GB of RAM for fast and seamless multitasking. Other key specs include a 4.7-inch display with 720p resolution, 32 GB of non-expandable internal storage, an 8 MegaPixel camera with autofocus and LED flash at the back, Full HD 1080p video recorder, and a variety of connectivity options including Wifi, Bluetooth and 3G.
Putting its powerhouse innards and specifications, monoblock polycarbonate enclosure and new operating system in a separate category, what makes HTC One X special is that - just like HTC Sensation XE and HTC Sensation XL - it will ship with Beats by Dr. Dre earphones and will feature Beats Software providing a boost in audio performance. Oh, and also, HTC One X will be the first handset from the company to come with the new HTC Sense 4.0 experience serving as skin for Android 4.0; I feel lucky for getting the chance to own and experience several flagship Android phones from various company and I hope you believe me when I say that HTC Sense is by far the best Android skin out there.
It's said that HTC is already set to formally announce HTC One X on the 27th, at MWC in Barcelona; So stay tuned for that. As for its arrival in the Philippines, I believe that the phone will land here sometime in Q2 with an SRP of around Php 30,000.
