HTC One X


It's only been one day here at MWC 2012, and already the phones are blowing us away. Sony, LG, and a few others rolled out some of their heavy hitters. And with its new One family, HTC is definitely packing a few punches of its own as well.

With its 4.7-inch super LCD 2 Gorilla Glass display, the HTC One X is going for a top-tier title. It also sports an 8-megapixel camera, a 1.3-megapixel camera front-facing camera, Beats Audio, and a 1.5GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor.

HTC One V

Although not as robust as its two brothers, the One X and One S, the HTC One V shouldn't be written off completely. Aside from sporting a distinct chin, the device also has a 3.7-inch screen, runs on Ice Cream Sandwich, and has a 5-megapixel camera.

Sony Xperia U

With its capability to smoothly display high-definition videos and games, the Sony Xperia U will showcase the same high-quality media experience as the Xperia P. The U will have a smaller 3.5-inch screen, however, and a 5-megapixel camera.
