Mobile World Congress 2014: HTC One X2:41 /
It's big, it's beautiful, and it serves up Ice Cream Sandwich alongside an enhanced camera and Beats Audio. It's the HTC One X.
Hey, everyone. This is Jessica (Zoltorb?) for CNET here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain where HTC has just announced a family of phones, of the whole trio under the HTC One brand. What I have in my hand is the most advanced of the three. It's the HTC One X and it will be available with AT&T in the US eventually but first it's gonna launch globally in April. So we don't have any specific dates or pricings yet but we do know quite a lot about the device. It comes in black, it comes in white. The white version is my personal favorite. All of the phones are gonna run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. They're all gonna have Beats audio integrated into it. They all have a new image tip (off?) and so that's gonna help out with the 8 megapixel camera on the back or as well also the front facing camera here. Shutter lag is gonna be very, very minimal on this. HTC has put a lot of work into improving its camera. They're now claiming that it is, if not the best, then among the best on the market. We've heard that claim a lot so it'll be fun to test that out. So it's interesting to see how Ice Cream Sandwich is incorporated into Sense 4.0 but a lot of its features, like the new Look and Seal that has been added into this. Overall, it is a really beautiful device. The specs are high end, 1080p HD of course, it's got a 4.7 inch HD display. It is really bright, really beautiful and HTC is boasting that it's got a very nice wide viewing angle so you and your buddy can look at it together. There's a microSD card slot on here but inside, there are 32 gigabytes of storage. And also, a new partnership with DropBox will give you 25 extra gigabytes of online storage. So between all of that, you'll have plenty of room for your videos, your music. Now and the most interesting things about this phone is that it will be one of the first to sport a quad core processor. It's got the NVidia Tegrow 3 processor inside, but that's only the global version, because the US version with AT&T will instead have a dual core Qualcomm Snap Dragon speaker 4: processor. So it will be interesting to battle out this here and see which one's actually faster, the quad core or the dual core. Other phones in this series are the HTC One S and the HTC One V. Stick around with CNET and CNET TV to learn more about those. I'm Jessica (Zolport?), coming at you from Barcelona. This is Mobile World Congress 2012
