HTC Desire X offers One series looks on a budget

Dual-core Krait and 4-inch screen

HTC’s One series smartphones got quite a few positive reviews, but the favorable press coverage did not translate into spectacular figures.

HTS is now hoping that it can do a bit better by offering an affordable handset with One series looks and decent specs. The Desire X features a 4-inch WVGA SLCD screen, Ice Cream Sandwich and it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core clocked at 1GHz.


It sounds like a pretty snappy combination, but unfortunately it only has 4GB of internal storage. HTC bundles 25 gigs of free Dropbox storage with the Desire X, but 4GB still sounds pretty cramped.

A 5-megapixel camera is at the back and HTC says it delivers some functionality seen on 8-megapixel cameras used in higher end One series phones, including HDR, fast continuous shooting and superfast activation.

The Desire X will start shipping in September, with an MSRP of €299 in Euroland.
