MWC – HTC One X Up close

OK, we got some great shots of all three HTC devices last night. First up, the big one – the HTC One X. This will sell unlocked (according to Clove, who are selling the white and grey one unlocked) for £492 and expect to see it everywhere – and we mean everywhere. It looks like the HTC One handsets will be popping up at pretty much every network you can shake a stick at.

The specs, which we’ve included on the PDF below, include a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU, 4.7″ HD 720p (1280×720) pixel screen, Android 4.0, HTC Sense 4.0 and 32 GB of on-board storage. Oh and yes, there is no microSD slot. But come on, 32GB, that should be enough for anybody. Beats Audio is on board, as is WiFi, DLNA, NFC, a 3.5mm audio jack and you get the usual array of sensors. The important thing, and the feature that’s getting pushed hard tonight, is the camera.

Actually, there’s two cameras – an 8 megapixel shooter round the back with a clever flash that automatically adjusts the brightness based on your proximity, auto-focus and that F2.0 aperture plus BSI sensor for low-light shots. The camera on here, and across the entire HTC One Series, lets you snap still images whilst you’re recording video, and you can go back and watch your video to take photos from it if you’ve missed a good moment.

Up front, a 1.3 megapixel camera, and you also get 2 years of Dropbox “online storage” too – 25GB. Here’s a look at the Dropbox system in use..

We’ve also got a look at the interface in action in out HTC One S post. We were very impressed with the build quality on this and that camera was very quick indeed. It’ll be available from Thursday 5th April.

    ummmm so its either the Sony Xperia S or this? Interesting choice to make…..

    I was thinking at the same thing…you can preorder the Xperia S on a £21.5 x 24month o2 contract with the phone free from buymobilephones whch equates to £516 over 2 years, which is pretty good considering barely use any minutes and texts and never go over the 500mb limit. I can’t imagine the HTC One X will be anything close to being free unless its on a £35+ a month contract over 24 months. Coupled with that, I mean, really? quadcore…..on a phone? why? maybe a tablet…yet…but a phone? I’ll stick to a high end dual core until a new standard arises.

    What is the battery life like?

  • Lee

    If you already have a Dropbox account – can you combine the 25GB into that – or do you have to have a seperate account for the One X?

  • My SGS2 gallery has a share to dropbox option. Whats new apart from the additional space???
