HTC has now officially unveiled its complete One series lineup, including HTC One X, One XL, One S and One V, during MWC 2012 and we'll start of with two flagship models, the One X and One XL.
There has been a couple of leaks regarding the Tegra 3 equipped flagship One X model and those last few leaks were spot on, at least when it comes to specs. In case you missed previous leaks, the One X features a 4.7-inch 1280x720 Super LCD 2 screen with 3D Gorilla Glass and is powered by the 1.5GHz quad-core (4-PLUS-1) Tegra 3 CPU, 1GB of memory and 32GB of storage space. The One X comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich backed by HTC's own Sense 4.0 UI.
The rest of the specs include a 8MP back camera with special Dual Shutter module that allows it to take photos while shooting 1080p video at the same time. It features a 22mm f/2.0 lens backed by a BSI sensor. Since it lacks the microSD card slot, HTC had to come up with some other way of providing extra storage and has decided to go for 2 year free 25GB of Dropbox cloud storage. The One X also packs NFC chip, DLNA, 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, micro-USB port, Beats Audio enhancement, impressive 9.29mm thickness and 1,800mAh battery.
The HTC One XL is basically the One X but with LTE. The only noticable difference is that this one packs the Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.5GHz clocked CPU rather than Nvidia's 4-PLUS-1 Tegra 3 chip.
The only thing that previous leaks missed is the actual price of the device, as those were aiming at around €700. According to our info, the One X will hit retail at around €599/CHF 719 and will hit Swisscom, Sunrise and Mobilezone in Switzerland as well as A1 Telekom Austria, H3G and T-Mobile in Austria. Unfortunately, we only got details for those countries in Europe but we are sure that Germany and rest of the countries should have similar pricing.
