Quad-core HTC One X passes FCC en route to U.S. carrier

Though at this point we don't know which carrier will get the new smartphone first, T-Mobile could be a contender.

Which U.S. carrier will end up with the quad-core model of the One X? Jessica Dolcourt/CNET

Of all the announcements from Mobile World Congress last month, one smartphone that really has Android fans talking is the HTC One X .

That's why we got excited this week when details surfaced that a quad-core variant could touch down on U.S. soil in the near future. Documents found on the FCC's Web site indicate that the bigger, badder edition of the HTC One X is en route.

Where it will end up remains to be seen, but reportedly T-Mobile has called dibs. Then again, Verizon Wireless has a history of snatching up some of the better smartphones on the market. Either way, this will be "One" to watch over the next few weeks.

Packing a quad-core Tegra 3 chipset and a bunch of bells and whistles, it's certainly a handset that I'm looking for this spring. And while AT&T will receive a dual-core edition of the handset, it's those extra cores that make for a superphone.
