MWC 2012: HTC overview
HTC One X hands-on
The HTC One X is the HTC flagship everybody was holding their breath for. The phone's supposed to mark a new direction for HTC towards less quantity and more quality, and they certainly mean it.
The One X packs the mighty NVIDIA Tegra 3 SoC with 4-PLUS-1 processors on board and 1GB of RAM. This quiet beast sleeping inside is running Android 4.0 and the home-brewed Sense 4.0 UI skin on top. And it looks stunning. HTC have obviously done their homework as the number of new features suggests. There're some fresh touches to the overall look and feel of the latest Android.
Speaking of Android 4.0 and Sense 4.0, they look magnificent on the One X's non-pentile Super LCD 2 display. Colors are vivid and the overall brightness is good on the massive 4.7-inch 720p HD display.
HTC has gone the extra mile building the One X's chassis. It's a single chunk of polycarbonate plastic just like the Nokia N9 and Lumia 800 and the seamless curved screen for edge-to-edge swipes.
Undoubtedly, the 8MP camera at the back is one of the headlines. It shoots 1080p full HD video and has what HTC call the "Double Shutter", meaning the One X can snap stills while shooting videos without interrupting the video capture. The f/2.0 lens aperture and the BSI sensor should fix the problems plaguing HTC cameras of old.
HTC also have a cool car mode that shows simple screens with easy to hit buttons.
And here comes a quick hands-on video of the HTC One X.
